Breed: Dachshund | Member Since 12/4/2007
Top quality AKC SMOOTH STANDARD dachshunds, linebred on established bloodlines well known for gorgeous breed type, elegance, correct movement, top conformation, and proper temperament. This line has a history of top producers in our breed, national and regional specialty winners, and smooth standard dachshunds with a very special and very distinctive look.
I breed to keep a promising puppy to show and continue the bloodline, but not every puppy in a well-planned show litter necessarily turns out to be a true show prospect. A pet from a litter like this gets the benefit of years of planning and all of the care and attention given to show prospects. My puppies are well socialized with children and part of the family.
I only have TRUE smooth standard dachshunds-- usually between 23-32 pounds-- NOT minis. My emphasis is proper breed type, correct temperament, and careful attention/research regarding genetic health concerns in our breed. I do appropriate OFA health testing prior to breeding. Check the OFA registry at www.offa.org to verify all of the health clearances. I am the only breeder of standard smooth dachshunds in California that does OFA and CHIC (Canine Health Information Center) clearances on all dogs we breed and show. My dogs are sane house companions with plenty of natural hunting instinct.
Please inquire only if you are looking for a well bred smooth standard dachshund puppy from a responsible breeder and can provide information about your home environment. I do ask an awful lot of questions and do screen potential pet homes carefully :) I DO NOT ship pet puppies to people I have never met, so be prepared to come to Southern California for a well bred member of your family. I am happy to send photos and information to serious people who have researched the breed or who have successfully owned dachshunds in the past. PLEASE plan on being patient for the right puppy... I do not have puppies at all times or sell puppies as soon as they turn 8 weeks old. Hope you understand why it takes time for good breeders to make their decisions and not simply send all their puppies on their way at 8 weeks of age. It takes some time to evaluate a show litter and make good decisions, so be prepared to wait for me to go through this process. My puppies are definitely worth the wait, if you are looking for a top quality, "real" smooth standard dachshund for either pet or show!
