Already home to an entire museum dedicated to dachshunds, Germany is attempting another feat that'll make dog lovers wish they were in the European country — an attempt to break the world record for the most amount of sausage dogs in one place.

On Saturday, July 21, dachshunds and their human companions will descend upon Berlin's Dackelranch Lichtenrade — or Dachshund Ranch, fittingly — with amassing 666 elongated pooches their ultimate target. And if you're wondering why the organisers have chosen that number, it's because it eclipses the current world record and then some.

At present, the record stands at 601, the number of short-limbed doggos that strolled along a Cornwall beach in England in March this year. That huge canine meet-up beat the previous total, from Wales, by 101 dachshunds (not dalmatians).

Those in attendance will see the cute critters wander around a 500-square-metre dog play area — and there'll also be veterinarians on site in case any puppers feel overwhelmed.

With the world record attempt organised by dachshund-themed Berlin bar POSH Teckel, there'll also be an after party, although we're guessing the 666 or so sausage dogs won't be trotting along to the evening shenanigans.
