We Do it All for the Puppies

When we set out to share our love for miniature dachshunds with families around the nation, wed knew that we would do so while following strict ethical standards for breeders.

We’ve built a process that’s designed to protect our puppies and ensure our customers get happy, healthy furever friends that thrive as a member of their families.

When can the puppies leave?

We keep all puppies until they are 8 weeks old. In some instances, we may keep them a few days longer–especially if they aren’t yet eating to our requirements. This waiting period is to ensure the puppies are healthy, weaned, and ready to join their new family.

Our Commitment to Ethical Breeding

We start the weaning process at 6 weeks of age to give the puppies plenty of time to adjust to being on their own before they go to their forever home at 8 weeks old.

We do not let our AKC Dachshund puppies leave until they are 8 weeks old, and sometimes a few days past that if they are not eating to our requirements. This is NOT negotiable.

If the timing is going to be an issue, then we recommend you wait until it is not an issue any longer. As a responsible miniature Dachshund breeder, our puppies’ well-being is, and will always be our first priority.

We deworm our puppies every 2 weeks until they are 8 weeks old. Then we deworm them every 3 weeks until they are 4 months old. After that, we deworm them once a month until they are 1 year old.

Adults are dewormed every 30 days. If a Mom is pregnant, she is dewormed an additional time 1-2 weeks before her due date.

We administer all vaccines according to recommended canine guidelines.

At 4 weeks old, we give a Parvo shot (Neopar). At 6 weeks, we administer a 2 in 1 vaccination,
and we administer a 5 in 1 vaccination at 9 weeks if they are still in our care.

Purchase price for the puppies comes with a limited AKC registration. This does not include breeding rights.

As with most miniature Dachshund breeders, we require all of our AKC Dachshund puppies to be seen by your Veterinarian within 72 hours of adoption for your protection as well as ours.

This visit is to verify the puppy is as healthy as we say he/she is, as well as get established with your Vet for a continuation of puppy vaccinations, dewormings, etc.

Appointments to visit must be scheduled in advance. We are not available every day of the week for appointments. Please email us to schedule an appointment.

To protect the health of our Dachshunds, visitors are not allowed to bring any pets onto our premises at any time. The safety and health of all of our Weenie dogs is our first and foremost concern.

Deposits to reserve our AKC Dachshund puppies are $300 (plus tax and card fees) and are non-refundable and non-transferable unless in the unfortunate event that your puppy should become ill or perish.

We will not take deposits from a business, broker, etc. As an ethical miniature Dachshund breeder, we do not knowingly sell our puppies to brokers or puppy mills.

We reserve the right to refuse the placement of one of our puppies if we do not feel the home is a good fit.
