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 15 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 more!
PS- I reserve the right to refuse to
sell one of my puppies to someone based solely on my gut
instinct, a good
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 based upon.
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 16 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 situation.
PS- I screen prospective buyer
and try to place every one of my puppies in a forever
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

I require a $200 deposit to hold the puppy

before final sale.

deposits until after the puppies are born.
