Welcome to our web site!

This site is to show off our beautiful miniature dachshunds. We are a family that love dachshunds, and over time have gotten addicted to the little guys. Starting out with our first altered red male that has sense passed away and adding a few more along the way. Our dachshunds are part of our family, inside and always under foot, Or under the covers, laundry, or blankets, I should say.
 They are first and foremost our pets and live in our home, with any pups I have being raised in our kitchen. When I do have pups for sale I post them on my nursery page. I get long and smooth coats in all different color patterns just out of the few dogs I have. My main goal is to produce loveable family companions with great temperaments. I also own a beautiful basset that is the best dog ever. If looking for a little larger dachshund type dog with a more mellow personality the basset hound may be right for you.
Please feel free to look at all my fun photo pages. You can also find more links and information by browsing the pages found in the left hand column or feel free to contact me if I can be of any help.

All our dachshunds are registered with either the American Kennel Club(AKC) or Continental Kennel Club(CKC)

Breeding great tempered dogs is very important to me because that's what I had the hardest time finding when i bought my own dachshunds. I strive for Great companion dogs. Doxies still should be socialized when young. When raised around kids and strangers, they will love kids and strangers.

Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy the web site!

The Dachshund...is a short-legged, elongated dog breed of the hound family. The breed's name is German and literally means "badger dog" (der Dachs - badger; der Hund - dog). The breed was developed to scent, chase, hunt, and kill badgers and other hole-dwelling animals. Due to their long, narrow build, they are sometimes referred to in the United States and elsewhere as "wiener dogs" or "sausage dogs".

The Basset Hound...is a powerful little dog. This breed is well built, has a long torso, short legs and long ears. In earlier times, after the French Revolution, this type of dog was used on hunting trips. Their sensitive noses allow them to pick up on scents quickly, making them especially talented at pursuing rabbits and hares. Basset Hounds are generally friendly and good-natured dogs. They get along well with other dogs, pets and children. They are usually very calm. Because they have a short, hard coat, minimal grooming is required. Their life expectancy is 8 to 12 years.

Weight of the standard size is usually between 16 and 32 pounds.
And what they call tweenies are any where in between minis and standards.
