********** Purchasing a puppies from Garlin
Miniature Dachshunds ***********
- PLEASE READ
This may help answer some of your
questions. Please feel free to email or call with other questions and concerns
you may have about buying a puppy from me.
I sell my puppies at 8 weeks of age, if
shipping is needed it would be at 9/10 weeks of age. I prefer your
puppy be living in their new home before 12 weeks of age or sooner. I try
to give every puppy I breed the proper socialization and attention they
need but once they become "preteen" so to speak, they demand and require
much more attention than a younger puppy. So please try to make
arrangements to have your puppy with you by the time they
reach this age if possible. I feel this is in the best interest
of my puppies and me.
PS- They think they live here and
I get too attached after 12 weeks! ; )
I prefer to sell my puppies to pet homes.
I do occasionally sell to other small breeders that I know personally or
that can supply me with adequate references. If you are a small
breeder and you can supply me with references I will consider selling you a
puppy. I do not sell to large breeding kennels because I feel they
can not possibly give each dog the attention
they require. I own approximately 20 Dachshunds, some are not of
breeding age as yet, some are almost ready to be retired and some are
retired. I consider myself a small breeding kennel, I do not work outside
of my home, my dogs are my life! These are all the dogs I can possibly care
for properly and that is spreading myself thin. I try to give my dogs all the
attention I can but I wish I could clone myself to give them
PS- I reserve the right to refuse
to sell one of my puppies to someone based solely on my gut
I breed the best quality dachshunds I
possibly can. I have bred some very nice puppies thanks to some wonderful
breeders allowing me to buy their puppies or stud to their beautiful dogs.
Yes, some may be of show potential but I do not sell show puppies. A show
prospect should be at least 16 weeks to 6 months old, I don't keep my
puppies that long to make that assessment. If you are looking for a show
puppy please contact a "show breeder" and discuss this with them.
Health, temperament and conformation is what my breeding program is
Color is secondary. I am
always striving to improve my breeding program.
PS-I do not show my dogs, I don't have
the thick skin for it! :(
I have been breeding dogs for over thirty
years, the dachshunds for almost 15 years now. If you purchase a puppy from me I
will try to assist you in every aspect of it's life. I am willing to share my
experience and advise in many areas, including training
and health issues. A dachshund may not be a suitable pet for every
family, if you are uncertain a dachshund will fit into your families
lifestyle I will try to give you my honest assessment of the

I breed Miniature
Dachshunds and offer quality AKC stud service. I breed dachshunds
because I love dachshunds but I also breed for profit. If a breeder tells you
they are not breeding for profit they are not telling you the truth. I do
not make a lot of money and sometimes actually lose money when problems arise
but the reward seem to outweigh the disappointment, it is what I truly
enjoy doing. With that pleasure there can also be heartbreak, so if
you are considering breeding your dog think long and hard. Emergency
C-Sections are very expensive not to mention that you may lose your bitch
and/or the puppies. Keeping your puppies until good
homes are found is very important and it can take longer then you anticipated.
How will you place/sell your puppies? Caring for a litter of
puppies is expensive, vaccinations, worming, quality pet food,
advertising and vet examines are some of the expenses in raising a litter
of puppies. Ask yourself, do you have the time, space and money to raise a
litter? Consider these things BEFORE breeding your
PS-Breeding your dog should be
taken very seriously.
I require a $200 deposit to hold the puppy
of your choice(deposit must reach me within 5 days or the
puppy will be placed back up for sale). The remaining balance
is due in full by 8 weeks of age. If the puppy is not picked up or shipped by 10 weeks of
age, an additional $25.00/week boarding fee will be charged, unless other
prior arrangements have been made with us. A Deposit will only be refunded
if the puppy has an unforeseen problem or defect. I accept
cash, money order, personal check and PayPal for a deposit (If using PayPal please add an additional 2.9%
$206.00), this is a surcharge that PayPal charges me to
use their service. When picking up your puppy please pay by Cash
or Money Order for your final payment. All funds must clear
the bank before final sale.
PS- I do not take
deposits until after the puppies are
I ship puppies throughout the USA, Shipping is approx. $275.00, this includes flight, crate
and state health certificate. Delta Airlines offers COD, if
shipping COD I require an additional $60.00 for the expense of the state health
certificate and crate, you may pay the airlines directly with a credit card for
your convenience for the actual flight upon your pets arrival. Two
puppies can be shipped together for an additional $25.00 same crate. I
do not ship overseas.

any reason. I can not refund the purchase price of your dog but I will
place it in a suitable home or assist you in placing your pet. If it
is possible to resell the dog I will refund the balance of the resale price
to you, less any expenses incurred while in my care.

dog in the appropriate home, it may not be possible to resell your
