This Year's Pups and Planned Breedings
Note: All titles are AKC (American Kennel Club), the only true, original dog registration and show organization in the U.S. Abbreviation guide: Ch. = conformation champion; Ch. pts. = conformation champion points); FCh. = field champion; DCh. = dual champion (both conformation and field championships); C.D. = companion dog; C.D.X. = companion dog excellent; U.D. = utility dog; T.D.= tracking dog; NA = novice agility; NAJ = novice agility jumpers; OA = open agility; OAJ = open agility jumpers; AX = agility excellent, AXJ = agility excellent jumpers; JE = junior earthdog; MS = miniature smooth designator
We anticipate having puppies of both show and pet quality available. Show quality means I feel that the pup will grow up with few conformation faults (no dog is perfect) according to the AKC Official Standard of the Dachshund and will be able to finish it's breed championship with a good handler. Pet quality means that the pup has either several minor conformation (not health) faults or one major conformation fault (such as a missing testicle or a missing tooth) according to the AKC Official Standard of the Dachshund standard which would make it difficult, or even impossible, to finish it's AKC conformation championship title. Most of my pet quality pups are actually good enough to be shown and even win some points, unlike some breeders' pet stock who barely resemble dachshunds. Since there are usually at least one or two outstanding pups in each of my litters that I will keep for show and/or breeding, I feel that the slightly lesser quality pups deserve homes of their own as beloved companions.
Pet puppies, regardless of color, are sold on spay/neuter contracts with limited AKC registration papers and health guarantees. People interested in a pet puppy should be prepared to provide references, such as from their vet and obedience/agility instructor or from a local kennel club member. Nonrefundable $50 deposits are accepted to reserve a pet quality puppy, although a specific pup cannot be chosen until the show quality pups have been selected at 10 weeks of age. Serious inquiries are invited from established breeders of show dogs for show-quality puppies as we do sell our good ones, both solids and piebalds, with show-potential guarantees. See our Older Show/Performance Prospects page (link at bottom of this page) for older, available show or performance prospects, and our Individual Older Pups or Dogs For Sale page for older available pet puppies and young adults.
