RETIRING DACHSHUNDS/OLDER DOGS
If a puppy is just too much for your work schedule or lifestyle, but you would still love to own a Mini-Dachshund, consider an older puppy, adult or retiring dog. Usually our retiring dogs have had only one or two litters, or perhaps have been used for stud, and are around the age of three to four years old.
They have grown out of the puppy-stage, are very healthy, and have good temperaments (or we wouldn’t have used them for breeding). Retired dogs are used to being with family and re-home very well. All are AKC Registered.
Retiring dachshunds are still young and playful, and have a good 12 to 14 years of life in them!
As the demand for retiring or older dogs has increased dramatically, I have decided to expand this page to include dogs retiring from AKC breeders/friends in surrounding areas. If the retiring dog is outside your driving range, we will do all we can to get the dog as close to you as possible for you to begin your new life together.
AT THIS TIME: We have decided to place our lovely Bella. Bella is an 8 month young girl who was kept back for show and will not be making it to the show ring, or the breeding program due to a soft temperment and a toe-in. Softness is a wonderful temperment for a pet home, however, in our breed, it is not preferred in the show ring or breeding program. She is not shy or aggressive, just a loving, wonderful girl, who gets along with other dogs and wants to be with you and be part of the family. Our Breed Standard says, “Bold to the point of Brashness”…..so dogs that go belly up for love on the judging table, are considered too soft. In addition, she has a “toeing in” on the left rear leg, which also removes her from the ring and breeding program. It is a common fault in our breed, does not affect her gait or health, but does remove her from the possibility of being shown or bred. Therefore, the breeder (no matter how much we love the dog) must do right by the breed first, and follow the Breed Standard.
If you are interested in one of our retiring or run on dachshunds, please contact me at Racebrook10@yahoo.com. You must leave a phone number on your email for a return contact.
A SIDE NOTE: I do not know how any retiring dachshunds will do with cats as I do not have any cats and they have never been exposed to them, unless otherwise stated above.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO SELL ANY PUPPY OR DOG TO ANY PERSON. WE DO NOT KNOWINGLY SELL OUR PUPPIES TO BROKERS OR PUPPY MILLS.
