Types of Miniature Dachshunds

Smooth Coat

(Short Hair)

The Smooth-Haired Miniature Dachshund is a short-legged, long-bodied dog breed with a short, neat, smooth coat, big floppy ears, a long nose and a deep muscular chest. Their coat comes in a variety of colors and patterns.

Smooth-coated miniature dachshunds are known for their stubbornness, intelligence, and loyalty . They are also affectionate, friendly, and alert . They are smart enough to assess a situation and can even problem solve. 

Smooth-coated dachshunds are generally easy to groom and require minimal upkeep . Brushing their coat once a week is enough to maintain it .


Long Hair

Long-haired miniature dachshunds are a unique and adorable breed. They have a soft, silky coat that is longer than the smooth coat and shorter than the wire coat . The hair on their ears, chest, and tail is longer than the rest of their body, giving them a distinctive look . Their coat comes in a variety of colors and patterns. 

Compared to smooth-haired dachshunds, long-haired dachshunds tend to be more gentle, sweet, and calm . They are also known for being affectionate and loyal to their owners . Wire-haired dachshunds, on the other hand, can be more feisty and comedic . However, it’s important to note that all three types of dachshunds share many similar traits that are typical of the breed .

Wire Hair

Wire-haired miniature dachshunds are a unique and adorable breed. They have a double coat, consisting of a short, thick, and hard outer coat coupled with a softer undercoat . The hair on their face, ears, and tail is longer than the rest of their body, giving them a distinctive look . Their coat comes in a variety of colors and patterns.

Compared to smooth-haired dachshunds, wire-haired dachshunds tend to be more feisty, comedic, and clownish . Long-haired dachshunds, on the other hand, tend to be more gentle, sweet, and calm . However, it’s important to note that all three types of dachshunds share many similar traits that are typical of the breed .

No, our puppies are priced individually
Some more common colors (for us) are less expensive
Some parents are dual registerered

Many of our adults are genetically tested

and other determining factors
There are lots of reasons for this decision, but the easy answer is, NO! Give us a call and let us know your puppy budget and we'll help you find a puppy for your family.


See Puppy Pricing Page for more information

Can we meet the puppy before placing a deposit?

Yes, Give us a call at (618)309-3733 and set up an appointment to meet any puppy that is over 8 weeks old


See Contact Us Page for more information

Do I have to place a deposit?

No! You don't have to place a deposit on the puppy. Especially if you want to show up the same day and take your puppy home.
However, if you plan to come pick up your puppy in a few days. We cannot guarantee your puppy will still be available at that time... without a deposit being placed on that puppy.
Note: If you are traveling to meet your puppy the same day- Call and make arrangements with us and we will make sure that puppy is held until you get here.

What if I place a deposit and then change my mind?

The deposit is a commitment from you to ensure that individual puppy has secured their forever home. Once we accept your deposit/commitment... That puppy is no longer available to the public. Meaning if you change your mind, that puppy may have lost not only your home but several other homes that may have been interested in taking him. Essentially meaning to find his new home... we have to start over.
So Deposits are not refundable or transferable.
With the only exception being if something happens to the puppy while in our care that renders him/her unable to be adopted to you. If this occurs deposits are then transferable or refunded.

At what age can I take my puppy home?

State law requires puppies to be 8 weeks of age to leave their mothers. For this reason we do not start showing our puppies until they are 8 - 12 weeks of age.
If the puppies are developing on schedule .... Once they are evaluated by our veterinarian and determined to be happy healthy puppies they will be allowed to go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age.
With that being said... occasionally our puppies are happy and healthy, but we believe they can benefit long term from spending a little bit more time with mom. In those situations we will ask you to wait a little longer to take your baby home...a few more weeks, maybe until 10-12 wks of age.

We just want to ensure our puppies have the best possible start to their new lives.

Will my new puppy have all of his puppy vaccines before I take him home?

Our puppies will be current on vaccinations for their age. Most puppies will go home at 8 weeks of age. They will have a parvo vaccine at 5 weeks and another distemper/parvo vaccine at 7.5 weeks of age.
If they stay with us longer we will make sure they receive proper age appropriate vaccines.
Once you take your puppy home. You will schedule an appointment with his new veterinarian who will determine the next vaccines that he will need and when they will be given.

How soon can I take my puppy on adventures outside?

We ask that you keep your puppy strictly at home with you until they are finished with their puppy vaccine series. This is usually at 4 months of age.
I know most people want to start showing off that new puppy and taking them to the dog park, PetSmart, puppy classes, your best friends house. This is very dangerous for your new puppy. There are lots of viruses and parasites that your new(very young) puppy will not be able to defend himself from...before being "FULLY" vaccinated and on a good flea/tick and heartworm prevention.
Instead, you could take lots of pictures and videos of your new puppy to show him off to the world.

What age do you recommend spaying or neutering our new puppy?

We ask our new owners to wait to spay/neuter their new puppies until they are adults between 12 - 18 months of age.
We believe this breed needs their hormones for their bodies to develop properly, which will reduce the chances of back and other health problems as they age.

Does it cost extra for breeding rights?

Yes. There is an additional fee of $500 dollars to obtain breeding rights for your new pet.  


See Puppy Pricing Page for more information

What food should I feed my new puppy?

There are lots of great foods to start your puppy on. There are also lots of variation in prices for puppy food.
I send enough puppy food home with your new baby to make sure he can transition over to a new food without causing stomach upset.
If you don't know what foods you like... I can discuss a few options with you.
I recommend Diamond Naturals Puppy Food.

Can we video chat?

I am happy to video chat with you with the puppy in the video with me.
However, I will ask you to call or text me to schedule this. So I can make sure to give you my 100% attention.

Do you ship your puppies?

At this time we do not ship our puppies through any outside companies. I just do not feel comfortable handing off our babies to a third party person and trusting that they will be cared for. I also do not want to put a puppy in potential danger of picking up any possible illnesses(viral or parasitic)

How long have you been breeding?

We have been breeding miniature dachshunds for as long as I can remember. My Great Grandfather started his dog breeding business in 1966.

So we have a multigenerational breeding business that we are very passionate about.

Will the puppies be seen by a Veterinarian before they go to their new homes?

We do everything we can to make sure to produce very healthy puppies. If they have anything wrong with them we will take them back and give you a different puppy. We are also always available to help you with any problems that may arise in your new dogs life... just call or text.

At what age do I start potty training my new puppy?

According to my mom's new book. It is best to start potty training your new puppy at 8 - 9 weeks old...

However, you should start potty training your new puppy as soon as you get them to their new homes. Miniature Dachshunds are highly intelligent and very much people pleasers.  So with the right techniques... you can potty train then within days of getting them home. Especially if you follow my moms method.
You can pick up a copy of her new book on Amazon:
Getting Ready for your Miniature Dachshund Puppy by Tammy Laird


You can find the link to her new book at the top of this page

Will my new puppy be microchipped?

Yes, all puppies will go home with a microchip. Please make sure to register your microchip through one of the more reputable MC companies. We like Homeagain:
However, there are many microchip companies that you can choose from.

Are your adult dogs Genetically tested?

Our AKC Dogs are all genetically tested for PRA and clear. We have begun doing full panel testing along with color panels.  All of our dogs are Brucellosis tested.
Our dogs are fully examined by our Vet and cleared for breeding.

What if after 2 or 3 years... something bad happens in my family and I can no longer care for my new pet?

In our contract that we ask you to sign... We make sure you understand that at anytime during the life of your pet, that you can no longer care for him.  We will welcome him back into our home and either find him another suitable home or let him retire here with our family.  We always have room for our animals.  Even if they are 18 years old and on their last leg.  We take them back.
