Pricing, Payments & Deposit Information

Thank you for your interest in one of our Muddy River Babies! We are an AKC Dachshund breeder and have been inspected by AKC 06-21-2019 and are in full compliance! 🐾



ALL DEPOSITS/PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE  and NON-MOVEABLE TO HOLD A PUPPY. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! We are passing on other buyers/clients by placing a hold on a pup for you so make sure this is the puppy you want before placing a deposit, it will not be moved or refunded!

Deposit amounts do vary and are listed under each puppies tab.

We CAN NOT hold a puppy for you without the deposit.

We DO NOT accept Predeposits or first picks!


1: Email/text/call for a deposit invoice OR

2: Add puppy to cart to pay in full (if available) OR

3: Add PUPPY DEPOSIT to cart (located under the Puppies for sale tab and make a note of puppies name at check out or email me the pups name).

We try our best to keep the website up to date. 


Our puppy prices run from $950-$3500 depending on color, sex, parentage/ dog lines. Dapples usually run the highest.

Males usually run $950 and up

Females usually run $1250 and up


 Our dogs are sold as....

PET ONLY: Puppies are listed and sold as pet only (no papers-I prefer to sell as pet only for many reasons including dog flippers)


Puppies come with limited AKC registration - on a Spay/neuter contract. Limited papers are released once we receive proof of spay/neuter BY 9 MONTHS of age, no later.

(This is noted next to the price.)

 LIMITED AKC means NO breeding rights! The puppy is sold on a spay/neuter contract and no litters can be registered by this puppy. Limited papers are released once proof of spay/neuter are received before 9 months of age. With limited papers you can register and name the dog through AKC.

Please click here for more info on limited akc :

FULL AKC will be on certain litters only, and will be at a much higher price. If it is available, it will be listed. 

Dachshunds come in many colors and patterns. We will list a description of their color and what each puppy is looking like under their sale tab. Of course as they grow this could change, we can not control color, 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 8 weeks when they have grown into their color and coat.

Puppies that are shipping need to be paid when booking shipping usually at 6 weeks. If a puppy is not going to be paid by cash at pick up they need to be paid by the 6th week of age.


❤️❤️❤️We have the right to place puppies and deny anyone a sale and refund a deposit at anytime at our discretion without giving a reason!!! I will not deal with any loco stuff or crazy toxic people 😳!!! I can usually spot these people from the first conversation/text/or email and if I get a bad vibe I won’t even consider it! I want all of our pups to go to awesome homes!! 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.



1. Cash at pick up

2. Credit card due one week before pickup with an additional 10% added.

NO CHECKS/NO MONEY ORDERS (We are aware of the scams!)

Our puppies are picked up at 7th-8th week which is what AKC recommends for best adjustment into their new homes. (See blog)



Shipping will depend on the weather and time of year. I do not do pickups before 8am or drop offs after 6pm. It takes me an hour to hour half to get to the airport. 

Pricing estimates usually run $450-$550 for a nanny, this will vary depending on the airline, there may be an additional in cabin fee. For this price, you can usually schedule a flight for cheaper to come pick up your pup and we can meet at the San Antonio Texas airport for free.

-Delivery/Shipping is ALWAYS an additional fee paid by the BUYER and at the BUYERS Risk! If your puppy becomes sick or injured this is at your RISK as we can not control the environment.

-You must be understanding and very very flexible for nanny shipping! Times can change at anytime, they are flying standby unless you want to pay extra for guaranteed seating. The nanny service can be extremely frustrating because they do fly stand by and many times they get cancelled and rescheduled and cancelled and rescheduled. Again, You must be flexible! I prefer clients to fly in and pick up!

-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 as well as other breeders 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. 

-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 any 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 aday.

Local services I have seen run $140 and up.

Most of these services are for United States mainland shipping only, I do not ship out of the country, it is too far and there are too many rules, regulations and dogs sit can sit in quarantine for days.

MEET FOR PICKUP FREE OF CHARGE: We do get a lot of out of town clients and I can meet in San Antonio if needed or HOUSTON clients I can meet in Seguin for pick up which will cut 2 1/2 hours off your drive here round trip! (Depending on flexibility of your schedule) Otherwise, I can possibly meet within a 30 minute area from my home if needed.




Our dogs and puppies are fed high quality dog food. I am currently feeding Blue Buffalo products. (We will give you a sample when you pick up your puppy!)


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 well cared for. They are not left up in kennels all day and have acres and acres of land to play.


As a protection for us and our clients, ALL of our puppies are vet checked before leaving!


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 before my family and my first morning wake up 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! We love it but we work our butts off too! Our prices reflect this and 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 which take upkeep, time and money as well. 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 not have my phone on me to return a call immediately but we will 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 02-15-19 I will no longer hold puppies. If you are not available on that date for pickup, then you will need to 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 only 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.
