The name of Erwin Rommel's dog?

In this film at 50:15 we can see the Desert Fox walking a small dog (a dachshund?). What was the name of this dog?
Montgomery apparently had a dog called Rommel. Maybe Rommel had a dog called Monty? :D

Correct it´s a Dackel, also called Dachshund sometimes. Sadly I don´t have a clue about it´s name.

Hey, Manfred, remember the name of your papa's little doggy?

Please. I know it is just an innocent joke, but nevertheless this is not the way to address the elders. There should always be a respect, even when one's joking...

Don't take this personally, many people get carried away when they are in a fun-mood, I understand that.

Cheers,
Ivan
