COLORS AND PATTERNS
Dachshunds come in many colors and patterns. We will list an estimated description of their color/pattern under each puppy for sale tab. Of course as they grow this could change, we can not control color and patterns especially when they are listed as newborns as it will change. If you are set on a specific color/pup then we ask that you wait to place a deposit until 6-8 weeks when they have grown into their color and coat.
We have the right to place puppies and deny anyone a sale at anytime at our discretion without giving a reason!!! We are a good family breeder and only the best will do for our pups! 😁 No puppies will be sold to puppy mills, pet brokers, research facilities, pet flippers nor to pet stores....they are looking for FOREVER homes ONLY.
SHIPPING BY NANNY
Please note: as of March 1, I am not using nannies due to Covid through 2020. We will re-evaluate in 2021, due to the reduction of flights and the fact that nannies only fly standby! You will have to fly in and pick up puppies at the San Antonio airport!
We now only do shipping by in flight personal nanny! For safety reasons I prefer using an in flight nanny service! Majority of the time our puppy clients actually PREFER to use in flight nannys as well! It’s more peace of mind having someone carry their future family member in flight, knowing they are cared for the entire time, sent photos and updates by text of their current location, allowed out for potty breaks in the airport bathroom on puppy pads, cuddled in between flights verses putting them in a kennel for hours and hours alone under an airplane or cargo holding area. We do not charge an additional fee for drop off at the San Antonio airport.
-I will not do drop offs before 930am as it takes me an hour to hour half to get to the airport.
-You MUST be flexible to use the nanny service!!!!!!!!! These flights are done on standby to keep cost reasonable unless you want to pay additional airline ticket fees for them to get on a specific flight so please be understanding as flights and times can instantly change. The nannies can get bumped on flights due to overcrowding or weather issues.
-Pricing estimates for in flight nanny usually run $450-$550.
-Delivery/Shipping is ALWAYS an additional fee paid by the BUYER, is the BUYERS responsibility and at the BUYERS Risk! If your puppy becomes sick or injured this is at your RISK as we can not control the environment. There are NO puppy deposit refunds if your flights can’t be completed with the nanny, you will need to be able to fly in or drive in.
-Nanny Fees are paid directly to the in flight nanny. They usually collect a small deposit and the remaining balance is due at delivery.
-Nanny’s fly airport to airport for pickup and delivery.
-If the shipping can not be completed, you will need to arrange a time to come pick up the dog or use another service. The nanny service is an outside company and I have used them successfully before but we can never make a guarantee on shipping. I usually give a pick up date and a boarding fee will be charged for holding puppies past this date.
For the price of the nanny, a lot of times clients can save money on airline deals or use points and simply fly in themselves to the San Antonio Texas airport and pick up the pup. Southwest and American Airlines currently allow puppies in flight at 8 weeks but make sure to check with the airlines and verify this as it can change. We do not charge an additional fee for San Antonio airport drop offs.
-We are never responsible for your transportation cost to get here to pick up the pup should something happen that delays the date that the puppy can leave, such as an injury, illness, or even just needing more time before they are ready to leave. As well as delay due to airtravel or nanny service issues. So if you live far away or are planning a trip here please beware the date could change and this is a risk you are taking. If the flight nanny can not complete the flights, you are still responsible for picking up the puppy and figuring out the transportation cost, the puppy is not refundable and must be picked up. A boarding fee may be charged at $20-$30 a day.
-I DO NOT ship out of the country! But we have had clients fly in from Canada and Mexico to pick up at the San Antonio airport.
-We only ship by nanny to the mainland in the United States. I do not know of any nanny’s that will fly outside the U.S. Each country has different rules, regulations and dogs can sit in quarantine for days.
Please see the visitation/pick up tab for more information!
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Our dogs and puppies are fed high quality dog food. I am currently feeding...
Purina Pro Plan Puppy Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice Formula with Probiotics Dry Dog Food
High quality care is costly for all of our dogs and puppies, (some breeders don’t do it), but we DO invest in their health (mentally and physically) and their well being because it matters to us! You can see this from our photos and Facebook page our animals are part of our family and well cared for. They are not left up in kennels all day and have acres and acres of land to play.
We spend time not only having fun and playing but there is LOTS and LOTS of cleaning, feeding, bathing, vet visits, all hours of the day and night delivering pups and caring for puppies and moms (24/7 at times) , emergency vet visits and after hours fees, puppy delivery supplies/nursery supplies, emergency supplies, wellness supplies, medical supplies, puppy pads, blankets, dog and puppy toys, bones, kennel replacements, dog house replacements, record keeping, lots and lots of photo sessions (which are pretty crazy and lengthy at times 😂), emailing and speaking with clients as well as potential clients, vaccinations, flea, heartwormer, wormer, pest control, fence fixing, pooper scooping, fly baiting, and paperwork/documentation for AKC, and paperwork for my files as needed....just to name a few! Whew 🤪! Taking care of puppies is a 24 hour job, not a 9-5 job. My pups are fed many times before my family and before my morning “get it together momma” energizing amino acid drink! 😂 Doing it the right way, Dog breeding is costly and a heck of a lot of work! Anyone who says otherwise has no idea and doing it half-tush. We love it but we work our butts off too! Our prices reflect this because we work really hard taking care of our dogs and pups, the best way possible. There is a lot of money financially that goes back into our dogs and puppies especially at the vet as well as our large yards and facilities which take upkeep, time and money as well. We have also just finished building an indoor doggy delivery/puppy building! ❤️
We try to get back to potential clients and clients as soon as we can, but please be understanding as I am caring for lots of animals as well as 3 kiddos and so there are times when I will answer back quickly and times when I will not have my phone on me to return a call immediately but we will always get back to you as soon as we are available!
-Puppies normally leave our care at the 7th week of age or 8th week of age, which is what AKC recommends for best adjustment into their new home and surroundings. Our puppies are raised indoors and interacted with everyday by my kids so they come prespoiled. Our puppies health and development is a priority. We do give an expected pickup date however this is always subject to change and is not a guarantee, so if the puppy needs extra time before leaving for health or mental reasons, we will let you know and you will need to be able to adjust your schedule. Those types of instances are out of our hands.
-Holding Puppies: Effective 2019 I will no longer hold puppies. If you are not available on that date for pickup, then you will need to check with me or wait on placing a deposit and see if this puppy is still available when you are ready to pick up. I am not a kennel with staff, my babies are raised inside and I only have family who helps watch my dogs and pups. I used to charge a $20 boarding fee per day but it messes up our activities with friends and family when you are a small breeder and do the work yourself. We try to plan around our litters in advance.
If I can not reach you by phone or email after several attempts, we will automatically place puppies back up for adoption and you will lose your deposit. Same applies to paying the balance on your puppy. It is the clients responsibility to make the final balance by the due date and failure to do so will result in loss of deposit and puppies being placed back up for adoption. Most clients I speak to weekly or every other week by sending photos and updates of their new pup so usually this is not a problem.
