ALL DEPOSITS or PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE  and NON-MOVEABLE TO HOLD A PUPPY. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! We are passing on other buyers/clients so make sure this is the puppy you want before placing a deposit or paying in full, money will NOT be moved and it will NOT be refunded for any reason you may have.

Nonrefundable Deposits do vary and are listed under each puppies tab or a pay in full amount is requested.

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

 We DO NOT accept Predeposits or first picks!

If a deposit is placed early on, clients are sent photos of their baby so they can watch them grow STARTING at about 4/5 weeks of age (The Start date is given in the advertisement) and then usually every 7 -14days after that until the pick up date listed.

                      PAYMENT OPTIONS

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 more 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

Shipping by nanny is available HOWEVER I will not book these. You will need to book the shipping directly with the nanny services (I can refer a couple to you if you don’t have one) and I will meet the nanny at the San Antonio airport to drop off. Please verify my availability before booking a flight with the nanny! I will only do drop offs with nannies between 9AM - 3PM, if available. Absolutely No early morning or evening drops off. It takes me an hour to hour and half to get to the airport (so 3 hours or more round trip) and I have to take my kids to school and we have kiddos activities so please check with me first. I do NOT charge an additional fee for gas, time or mileage, but these need to be dropped when I am available. Nanny fees are paid directly to the nanny and vary in price. No CARGO Shipping


                             PICKUPS/DROP OFFS

 See Pick Up and Visitation Tab on menu bar for more info: Quick notes:--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.

-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 puppy info 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. 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.

-I DO NOT ship cargo!



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 and hunt and adventure out.

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:  I will not be able to 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 do happen to agree in advance to hold a puppy, there is an additional $20 a day fee (per puppy) past the pick up date. This will need to be paid in advance with the entire balance to hold.

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 if there is one. 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.
