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! 🐾


                                       DEPOSIT INFO

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 and it will NOT be refunded for any reason.

Nonrefundable 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!

Please make sure the pick up date works for you on the advertisement before placing a deposit!

If a deposit is placed early on, clients are sent photos of their baby so they can watch them grow STARTING at about 4 weeks of age (The Start date is given in the advertisement) and then usually every 7 days after that until the pick up date listed. I don’t do photos in between that, as photos take a long time to take, going through 100’s if not 1000’s of photos, edit process and then sending to my phone and then sending to each client. It takes me days in between caring for kids, puppies and dogs so this is a lengthy process. These are not photos randomly taken with my phone so please understand the dates listed.



CASH at pick up of pup

If you don’t do cash, Credit card due one week before pickup up with an additional 10% added. I will have to send you invoice.

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

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

Puppy prices usually run from $1795-$4500 depending on color, sex, parentage/dog lines.

(Prices subject to change at anytime and this is a general price range)

 Our dogs are sold as.... (noted next to the price)

1: PET ONLY: Puppies are listed and sold as pet only (no papers, no registration allowed, puppy is companion family pet)

 2: LIMITED AKC REGISTRATION: Sold as a pet, On a Spay/neuter contract. These 2 conditions must be met: Need to return contract signed that was received at pup pick up within 7 days AND provide proof of spay/neuter by a licensed vet BY 9 MONTHS of age, no later. Once both conditions are met, the limited akc papers will be ordered and emailed, No exceptions!


                          AKC LIMITED REGISTRATION 

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 AND the contract paperwork was returned signed within the first 7 days of receiving the puppy as it states on the contract.

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.


                           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! 😁 I am a very fair and honest breeder and I will not put up with crazy and rude people!  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

As of  March 1 2020, I am not using nannies due to Covid. We will re-evaluate in 2022, due to high demand and the reduction of flights and the fact that nannies only fly standby! Therefore, You will have to pick up pup locally.


                             PICKUPS/DROP OFFS


See Pick Up and Visitation Tab on menu bar for more info

-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, for example an injury, illness, or even just needing more time before they are ready to leave.

-We are not responsible if there is a delay due to airtravel or nanny service issues, IF available. So if you live far away, or are planning a trip here, you MUST be flexible! Please beware the pick up date could change at anytime and this is a risk you are taking by placing a deposit to hold a pup.

- I do NOT ask if you are driving in, flying in, taking a train, private jet, or bus. Obviously this is none of my business!  On all advertisements, I give the dob and pick up date for each pup. Most people do drive in, However, if you are flying in, The client is of course responsible for making their own flight arrangements and following their airlines guidelines and rules. I release my pups usually around the 7th or 8th week which AKC recommends. (I am not required to go by atleast 8 weeks because I am not licensed by the State of Texas because I do not exceed the number of breeding animals at this time.) We do not book flights or know each airlines or private jets policies. You fly with puppy at your own risk!

 -I DO NOT ship out of the country! But we have had clients fly in from Canada and Mexico to pick up and take the pup home with them.



Our dogs and puppies are fed high quality 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 is 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 caring for our dogs and puppies as well as into our large yards and facilities which take tons of 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 pickup date however this is always subject to change and is not a guarantee. For example, 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.

 -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 before placing a deposit 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. We try to plan around our litters in advance. So please be aware of the pick up date on the advertisement and make sure this works for you. 

If I can not reach you by phone or email after 3 attempts, we will automatically place puppies back up for adoption and you will lose your deposit. If you do not respond to scheduling your pick up appointment, you will lose your deposit. 

It is extremely important to be able to reach you as pick up date approaches, as I do have a busy schedule and try to schedule everyone a couple weeks in advance and plan activities around these pickups. 

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, but it is not my responsibility to hunt you down, you will need to confirm final payment and pick up date about 2 weeks out.
