This song is also known as: "Oh Where, oh Where Ish Mine Little Dog Gone" or "Where oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone". "Der Deitcher's Dog" was also titled "Oh Where, oh Where Ish Mine Little Dog Gone." It is commonly known using the standardized title "Where oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone."

"Der Deitcher's Dog" was first published in 1864 as sheet music. There was a title page and three pages of sheet music with lyrics. Songwriter Septimus Winner set his original lyrics to a traditional German folk tune: "Im Lauterbach hab'ich mein' Strumpf verlorn." The song was a best seller during Winner's lifetime.

The first verse of this song has become a popular nursery rhyme:

Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone?
Oh where, oh where can he be?
With his ears cut short, and his tail cut long,
Oh where, oh where is he?
