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.
sell my puppies at 8 weeks of age, if shipping is needed it would be at 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

here and I get too attached after 12 weeks! ; )
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
PS- I reserve the right to
refuse to sell one of my puppies to someone based solely on my gut
instinct, a good breeders
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
Color is secondary. I am always striving to improve my breeding

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 home.
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 dog!
