Dual Ch. Duchwood's Big Black Wolf MS - deceased  
(Duchwood's Webster MS [Ch. pts.] x Duchwood's Pebblestone MS, ROM [field pts.})  
Wolfie is an elegant dog who is both a bench and field champion.  He was Reserve Winners Dog at the Dachshund Club of America National Specialty Show in 1998.  He has excellent ribbing and keel length, nice front and rear angles, and fabulous side movement.  He weighs 12 lb. but seems to be a size reducer. His champion black/tan piebald son, Crosby (Duchwood's A First For Me MS) can bee seen below, and his champion daughter, Afton, (Duchwood's After Dark MS) is on the female page. Wolfie experienced back pain and ataxia (the wobbles) at age 10, but fully recovered with steroids and extensive crate rest.  He died at age 16 1/2.
Ch. Duchwood's YNot Another MSP - retired  
(Ch. Duchwood's Red Alert MS x Duchwood's Lindy Star Sapphire MS) 
Little AJ has his dad's fabulous front and a better rear than Bryce, plus he's smaller (10 lb) and lower to the ground.  He's a smooth moving machine like dad, too!  His head resembles his grandad, Decker.  AJ is co-owned and lives with Christine Goddard of YNot Dachshunds in Tennesee.  He won Winners Dog at the National Miniature Dachshund Club's Mini-Expo, August 2004, a piebald first!  He finished his championship with his final major only 2 weeks later. He is the sire of 1 champion son so far.  He was not a dominant stud like his dad so he was neutered and placed in a pet home.
Ch. Duchwood's A First For Me MS - deceased
(DCh. Duchwood's Big Black Wolf MS x Ch. Duchwood's Nutmeg MS)  
Crosby is a small, low-stationed boy with lots of angles and a plain head.  He is a lovely mover. He is the sire of 6 champions to date and appears to do well as an outcross sire.  However, his dam developed epilepsy at age 4, his sire is showing signs of back trouble at age 10, and Crosby had back problems as well at age 5.  He was neutered and placed in a pet home after he made a full recovery.
Duchwood's Saber Blade MS, R.N. (Ch. pts., 2 C.D. legs) - retired 
(Duchwood's Barney Rubble MS [Ch. pts.) x Duchwood's Panda MS [Ch. pts.])  
Saber is a black and tan piebald male who has a few single show points.  He was not not campaigned to his breed championship as he got so excited in the ring that he carried his tail way too high. However, he is a very good obedience dog and has started showing in Novice B.  I've also started agility with him.   He is small (10.4 lb.) but has solid bone, an elegant head and forechest, and lots of front and rear angulation.  His puppies out of 3 different bitches are beautiful. He has been neutered and will stay here.
Kinder's Light Saber MS  (Ch. pt.)  
(Duchwood's Saber Blade MS x Field Ch. Duchwood's Starlight MS, CGC)   
Jedi is a very elegant black and tan piebald male with an outstanding head, front, and rear.  He is a spectacular mover.  He won only 1 champion point and was retired from the show ring since he disliked it so much.  He turned out to be a wonderful producer, though, with 2 champion offpsring.  Jedi resided in Wisconsin with his co-owner, Jan Dubois, of Kinder Dachshunds, but has now been placed in a loving pet home.
CH. Kinder's Dashing Gentleman MS (field pts.) - deceased   
(Ch. Duchwood's No Way Noah MS x FCH. Kinder's Demure Gray Lady MS, ME)   
Dash, a 9 1/2 lb. red male, started his show career with a bang by going Reserve Winners Dog at the National Miniature Dachshund Club's Expo Specialty Show in 1998 at the age of 9 months.  Dash is a great grandson of our very first dachshund, Ch. Duchwood's Tad of Doxdane MS, C.D.X., T.D., C.G., and his bright intelligence reminds us of Tad.  He had mild ataxia at age 5 but recovered, so he is now neutered and in a loving retirement home in Las Vegas.  Dash died from chronic heart failure at age 14 in 2011.
Ch. Duchwood's Sure Thing MS - never bred 
(Ch. Duchwood's Phoenix MS x DCh. Kinder's Magic Mirror MS) 
Sean finished his championship quickly but grew too large for our breeding program.  He was neutered and is now living in a pet home in Montana.
Duchwood's All Decked Out MS, OA, NAJ - deceased    
(Duchwood's Saber Blade MS [Ch. pts.] x Duchwood's Little Belle MS)   
Decker is a tiny but solid 10.75 lb., mahogany red piebald male with heavy ticking and a feminine head.  He has excellent keel and rib length, nice front and rear angles, a dippy topline, and is just too darn cute (he knows it, too!).  He's not a show dog but was a dynamite agility dog with his Open Agility title and 1 Open Jumpers leg!  His champion son, Bryce, out of his first litter with Jazz, is just gorgeous.  Unfortunately, Decker is also retired from agility since he blew a back disk and had surgery.  Although he can run around, he will never be normal again.  Agility had nothing to do with him becoming paralyzed - genetics did.  He had not done any jumping in 4 weeks.  He went down again a year after his surgery, but came back up after steroid blasting. 
Field Ch. Duchwood's Celtic Courage MS (Ch. pts.) - deceased 
(Ch. Ward's The Cowboy Way MS x Duchwood's Pixie Princess MS)  
Aidon is a solid red boy who finished his field championship and won an Absolute (the field equivalent of Best in Show or High in Trial)!  He's a dynamite hunter and also has several conformation ch. points.  He's heavy-boned, with a wonderful, strong rear, but could use more keel and ribbing length and better shoulder layback.   He carries the piebald gene recessively and produced pretty puppies.  Aidon had mild IVDD at age 8 (ataxia - the wobbles in the rear - and pain).  He made a complete and rapid recovery on crate rest and steroids. Aidon was euthanized due to pancreatic cancer at age 11 in 2011. 
Dual Ch. Duchwood's Cast in Stone MS - retired  
(FCh. Duchwood's Celtic Courage MS [ch. pts]. x Duchwood's Rubystone MS)  
"Casper" has an outstanding body with a perfect topline, great front and rear angles, and long ribbing and keel.  His head is OK, eyes a little round and his ears are a little high-set, and his feet could be a little tighter and heavier boned.  He is a fabulous mover and is also proving to be an enthusiastic bunny hunter who has now finished his field championship.  He weighs 11.0 lb. He was neutered and placed in a pet home in California. 
RUSSIAN/FCI/U.S. Ch. Duchwood's Pierce Arrow MS - in Russia  
(FCh. Duchwood's Celtic Courage MS x Ch. Duchwood's Nutmeg MS)   
"Pierce" is a beautiful boy, though rather large (11.75 lb.), with a stunning head.  He has tons of front and rear angles and a good topline.  Ribbing and keel could be longer, but he is a wonderful mover.    Pierce does not carry the piebald gene recessively.  His puppies have been outstanding (see Raven and Darcy).  Pierce has gone to Marina Kovalenko, Lisego Nosa Kennels, of St. Petersburg, Russia, where both he and his children are seen at World shows in Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia.  Pierce is Zwerg size and has all of his teeth.
Duchwood's Ramsey The Rake MS - retired  
(Ch. Duchwood's Count Cameron MS x Duchwood's Stepping Stone MS (ch. pts.)) 
Ramsey is a handsome boy with an incredible front assembly and lovely rear angles.  His head is gorgeous and he's a friendly boy.  His tail set is quite high but he carries his tail low when gaiting.  He really has matured and is looking lovely.  He is a nice mover with a level topline.  Ramsey was bred once, neutered, and placed as a pet in Pennsylvania since no one was interested in him for show and we had too many boys.  He produced 3 show pups out of 3 from his one and only litter.
Duchwood Halls Creek Doxology - retired  
(Ch. Duchwood's Phoenix MS x Ch. Applehil Count Your Blessings)   
Graham is a small standard boy (18 lb.) who was never socialized properly by his first owner.  He is terrified of men and so could not be shown even though he is a beautiful boy.  We bred him once, then neutered him and placed him in a loving pet home in Wisconsin.
Ch. Duchwood's Buyonegetonefree MS - retired    
(Ch. Duchwood Sounds of Silence MSP x Duchwood's Magic Crystal MS) 
Byron is a clone of his dad with a little more elegance.  He has a wonderful shoulder assembly, perfect topline and tail set, lots of rear angles, and a gorgeous head.  His feet could be tighter but he's a lovely mover.  *BAER* tested 7/30/05 by Dr. George Strain, LSU - bilateral hearing perfect.  Byron is truly gorgeous and loves people but he has been producing pups with demodectic mange so he has been neutered and placed as a pet in a loving pet home in Louisiana with Sasha.   Pedigree 
Admindac It's Hardly Done MS - deceased  
(Can. Ch.Grandgables Bean And Done It MS x Can. Ch. Duchwood's A Southern Girl MS) 
"Harley" was bred in Canada by Darrin Pettitt.  He is a stunning, mahogany red boy with good bone, lovely front and rear angles, a handsome head, and a perfect topline when stacked; he does not hold the topline when moving so was not shown.  He is a nice blend of English and U.S. bloodlines, and we are excited about the pups he has produced as he seems to be  a size reducer..  Harley weighs 10.75 lb.  He was neutered and retired to a special pet home in New York.  Sadly, Harley was hit by a car and killed due to the carelessness of his new owners.  He was only 7 years old and should have had many more years of life ahead of him.  We were devastated at the news of his untimely, and totally preventable, death.  Never let a Dachshund near any road unless it is on leash!
Canadian Ch. Duchwood's Far And Away MS - deceased  
(Ch. Duchwood's Red Alert MS x Duchwood's Lindy Star Sapphire MS) 
Fargo is AJ's brother, and went on co-ownership to Admindac Kennels in British Columbia.   He's a flashy, handsome, large boy with lots of angles, a showy personality, and a pretty head.  He finished his Canadian championship quickly and produced several champions in Canada.  He has been retired to a pet home.  Sadly, Fargo passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2011.
Duchwood's Hurricane Danny MS (ch. pts. including 5 pt. specialty major)  
(Ch. Grandgables The Gladiator MS x Ch. Duchwood's After Dark MS) 
Danny is a very handsome boy who is a superb mover.  He has lovely front and rear angles, long ribbing and keel lengths, and a good topline that shows only a little dip when moving.  His head profile is lovely but he is a little broad across the topskull and his eyes are a little round.  He has a happy-go-lucky attitude towards life and loves the show ring.  He has gone to a show home in France where we hope he will light up the show ring with his personality.  We kept 2 of his daughters. Danny experienced IVDD while in France, but has made a good recovery. 
CH. DUCHWOOD'S CAPTAIN GAVIN MS (field pts. - needs a 1st to finish field championship)  
(U.S./Russian Ch. Duchwood's Pierce Arrow MS x Duchwood Fool's Gold MS) 
Gavin has a lovely front (upper arm could be a touch longer), good ribbing and keel length, a wonderful rear, and handsome head.  He could use more forechest.  He has a wonderful personality and loves everyone.  He is a spectacular mover with complete extension of his hocks, something you do not ordinarily see in a Dachshund.  Gavin was also showing promise as a bunny hunter, with several placements at field trials and only needed a first place to finish.  Sadly, Gavin has experienced IVDD (March 2010) problems (rear paralysis) and has been removed from our breeding program.  He is walking normally again after being steroid blasted and has fully recovered but he is no longer interested in hunting. 
Admindac's Almond Joy MSCP (ch. pts. including BOV over specials, needed 1 major to finish) - retired 
(Longonloving Admindac Snickers x Joskips Chocolate Drop MSP) 
Jay came from Darrin Pettit, Admindac Kennels, in Canada.  Our dark chocolate/tan boy was the foundation sire for our new chocolate smooth line  at Duchwood.  He has a lovely front and head, lots of rear angles, and a level topline.  He is an adequate mover and sound coming and going.  He carries the piebald gene recessively and weighs about 12 lb.  Jay quickly racked up show points, including a 4 pt. major, with very limited showing, but we never finished him.  He produced lovely pups with nice fronts, good toplines and lots of rear angles.  Jay retired to a pet home in Seattle, Washington.   Pedigree 
Duchwood's Alabama Bandit MS 
(Ch. Duchwood's Count Cameron MS x Duchwood's Touch of Magic MS) 
Bandit is a striking boy with his white coloring and jagged edged spots.  He has a handsome head, lovely shoulder layback, a perfect topline, good ribbing and keel lengths, and  a lovely rear.  He could use a longer upper arm.  He is a nice mover with a bubbly, sweet temperament who loves everyone.  He turned out to be a big boy who carried his tail too high in the show ring and was not a remarkable sire.  He is neutered and in a pet home in New Orleans. 
Duchwood's Quintessential Pie MS - retired  
(Ch. Duchwood's Count Cameron MS x Duchwood's Mighty Sprite MS) 
Quincy is a small (about 10 lb.) and very handsome boy.  He's got tons of rear angles, a perfect topline, lots of ribbing and keel, and a handsome head.  His shoulder layback is outstanding but he could use more upper arm and more forechest.  He is also a lovely mover with a tail that is constantly in motion.  He picked up a major reserve at his first show but did not like to show and was not a producer.  He has gone to his forever home in Canada.
FCI/ U.S. Ch. Duchwood's Count Cameron MS - gone to Finland as a show/stud dog 
(U.S./Can. Ch. Pawprints Grandgables Edition MS x DCh. Duchwood's All That Jazz MS) 
Cameron is a gorgeous boy with lots of front and rear angles, a stunning head, dead level topline, and floaty movement.  He is a little short in ribbing and keel.  He finished his championship quickly.  Won BOS first time out as a special at DCA Region V Specialty in AL. Cameron weighs 13 lb. and carries the piebald gene recessively. His litters have been outstanding and he has several champion offspring.  Cameron is now winning overseas with his new owner and has become an International Champion (FCI).  PEDIGREE 
Ch. Lisego Nosa Vitamin YU - has gone to a show home in Canada 
(Russian Ch. Lisego Nosa Yunker Tolstoy x Lisego Nosa Utoli Moi Pechali) 
Vito came from St. Petersburg, Russia, from Marina Kovalenko.  He is a gorgeous boy with fabulous front and rear angles, a perfect topline, and a lovely head.  He is also a beautiful, sound mover.  Vito brought some interesting new bloodlines into our kennel from Russia, Europe, and Great Britain (D'Arisca).   He finished his U.S. championship with 3 majors!  Vito now has 5 show champion daughters, 2 champion son, and 1 field champion daughter, with 2 more offspring with majors, so he will be an ROM before long.  We no longer need him, but he is still young, so he went to a Canadian show breeder to add new blood to that kennel.   
CH. Duchwood's Red Alert MS - deceased  
(Duchwood's All Decked Out MS OA, NAJ x Ch. Duchwood's All That Jazz MS) 
Bryce (means "alert" in Celtic) is Corrie's grandson and was built much like her.  This 12.75 lb. red piebald boy was a powerful mover, totally sound coming and going, had long ribbing and keel, a beautiful head, and a winning personality.  He finished his AKC breed championship with 3 majors (4 pts., 5 pts., 5 pts.).  His children out of 8 different females are outstanding - he now has 5 champion sons, 2 champion daughters, 1 pointed son, and 1 pointed daughter.  Bryce turned out to be quite a producer.  BAER tested 7/2/03 by Dr. George Strain, LSU - bilateral  hearing perfect.  Bryce took an Award of Merit at DCA 2005!!!   *Pedigree* 
Duchwood's Solo Sam MS - retired to a pet home 
(Ch. Duchwood's Movie Star MS x Duchwood's Wild Wild Angel MS) 
Sammy is from a one-puppy litter and has matured into a long, elegant boy like his sire and he moves like him, too. However, his elbows were still loose so he could not be shown.  Sammy has a delightful temperament and loves everyone.  He had an "oops" litter with Miss Daisy, so we know he carries chocolate, and his daughter, Ariel, has turned out quite nicely.  He was neutered and placed in a pet home.
(Ch. Dynadaux Aint Jus Whistlin Dixie MS x Duchwood's Little Pixie MS)  
"Niles" is a gorgeous, small (10.8 lb.), black/tan boy with lots of front and rear angles.  He has a beautiful head and a nice prominent forechest.  He may or may not carry the piebald gene.  He stayed small and is a lovely mover.  Although he has recovered from a very nasty infection of unknown origin, he can no longer be shown in the breed ring.  He has produced some nice pups for us and we will keep his son, Kane, as a replacement.
Ch. Duchwood's Gamekeeper MS - retired 
(Ch. Lisego Nosa Vitamin Yu x Duchwood's Lady Ellen MS) 
Hagrid turned out to be a truly stunning boy.  His head is to die for.  He could have a longer upper arm and longer ribbing and keel lengths, but they're not bad.  He has tons of rear angles but is a little hocky.  He is a lovely mover with a level topline.  He finished his AKC championship with 4 majors.  He has his first litter of 5 out of Patti (11/11).  He suffered an IVDD event in 2013 and is retired. 
Ch. Duchwood's Diamond Rio MS (also has field pts. & needs just another placement to finish his field championship and become a Dual Champion!)  
(Ch. Duchwod's Quasar MS x Grandgables Claire of Duchwood MS) 
Rio is a spectacular mover and started his show career with a bang, getting back-to-back 3 pt. majors out of the 6-9 mos. puppy class, then another 3 pt. major a few weeks later.  He finished with a 4-pt. major at just over a year of age.  He will definitely stay here now as a replacement for his sire. Rio has also discovered bunnies, and has a first, and 2 seconds at field trials.  He only needs a few more points to finish his field championship and become a dual champion!
