How and what we do
- We do not let our pups leave until they are 8 weeks old and sometime a few days past if they are not eating to our requirements, this is not negotiable. If the timing might be an issue then we recommend you wait to adopt when timing is not an issue any longer.
- We deworm our pups every 2 weeks until they are 2 months old and then every 3 weeks until they are 4 months old and then once a month until they are 1 year. Adults are dewormed every 90 days. If a Mom is pregnant she is dewormed an additional time 2 weeks before delivery due date.
- We administer all Vaccines according to recommended canine guide lines.
- At about 6 weeks old we give a Parvo shot then between 8 & 9 weeks we start there first of three 5 way vaccines and administer every 3 weeks until finished. We do not give our pups the 7 way vaccination because some Dachshunds are allergic to the "lepto" virus in that vaccine. That will be something you will needs to be address with you Veterinarian during puppy vaccinations/wellness appointments. We do recommend doing a Lepto vaccine but at an older age and separate from other vaccines.
- Puppies are raised in a bedroom of our home and are handled and loved on every single day several times a day from the second they are born. We start the weening process at about 7 weeks of age to give the pups plenty of time to adjust being on there own and learning to rely on humans more then Mom for comfort, food and playing before they go to there forever home at 8 weeks old. We also start potty training our pups with pee pads during the weening process.
- We honor a 2 year health guarantee from any fatal life threatening genetic defects.
- As with most breeders - We require the puppy be seen by your Veterinarian with in 72 hours of adoption for your protection as well as ours. This visit is to verify the puppy is as healthy that we say she or he is as well as get established with your Vet. with a puppy wellness plan, continue puppy vaccinations, dewormings, scheduling spay or neutering, etc.
- We do not use cages to raise any of our babies (adults and or puppies).
- Pet price means the puppy is to be spayed/neutered and the buyer will have to sign a contract the day of pick up or delivery saying they will get the puppy neutered/spayed by the appropriate age (by 1 year of age). Proof of the procedure will then have to be supplied to us. If we do offer AKC "limited" reg. papers, it is to be discussed in writing if it is available for that litter, if it is and we are offering it then it is extra cost to the customer and has to be discussed in writing before pick up or delivery.
- We are a registered private breeder with the IRS, the state of Tennessee and the county we live in.
- To protect the health of our Dachshunds - visitors are not allowed to bring any pets onto our premises at anytime. Sorry. We are just looking out for the safety and health of our babies first and for most. PLEASE. We ask that if you have a visit scheduled to come to our home that you "DO NOT" visit any other animal facility before coming here. PLEASE!
- We are not available everyday of the week for appointments. We do not do any business on Sunday mornings and only "occasionally" are we able to do a courtesy appointment in the afternoon if it scheduled weeks in advance and does not conflict with our Sunday family time/plans.
- We do not do business through a 3rd party under any circumstances. That also means we WILL NOT hand over one of our babies to anyone else but the owner/buyer. We will not take a deposit from a Business, broker, etc. as that is a 3rd party.
- We will not knowingly "EVER" place one of our babies with a puppy mill and or a pet store. We reserve the right to refuse placement of one of our babies if we do not feel the home is a good fit or does not meet our simple "Purchase Requirements".
- Unfortunately we just simply have not ever been able to find the time to manage a "waiting list" so we do not offer that as an option and we do not except deposits ahead of birth.
- Sometimes we are simply just not able to accommodate visits.
- Visitors are welcome but because we do this in our home, we do have requirements before an appointment is scheduled to come and/or pick up a puppy. We are small so we have to limit the amount of people at an appointment. And PLEASE DO NOT ever come to our home after you have visited any other animal facility!
- We do not do walk ins.
- Thanks for checking us out.
