Please read below.

Deposit and Reservation/Waiting List: 

Prior to posting a deposit, we kindly ask that you submit the form "puppy reservation form" button on the bottom of this section page. Please only apply if ready to pay your deposit. The information we ask in the form enable us to set up a meet and greet, process your reservation and puppy registration paperwork. Rest assured the information you share is kept confidential and used for puppy registration and receipt only. We respect and value your privacy.  Posting a deposit  is the first step in reserving a puppy from us. Deposit is $300 for any color other than dapple. Deposit on any dapple is $500. Our puppies start at $1600 for males and $1800 for females PET AKC/CKC limited registration only. Dapples are occasionally priced higher depending on the puppy. We may charge anywhere between $2500 - $3000 for a female dapple, and $2100 -$2500 for a male dapple. Every litter is different. The deposit is your guarantee that we will not continue to advertise and/or place the puppy you have chosen with someone else. The deposit is also our guarantee that you will be purchasing the puppy you chose, therefore the deposit is non-refundable. The only exception to this rule is if the puppy is not available to you. You will be notified when your puppy is ready to come home. We like to post updates and keep families up to date on the puppy's development. Our puppies are at least 8 weeks when we release them to go home, following their first vet outing; however, we reserve the right to keep the puppy longer than 8 weeks if we feel or have been told by the vet, he/she is not ready to go home. In that case, we will continue their vaccinations and deworming while they are under our care. All puppies go home microchipped, with a lifetime service completely free of charge to you.  Once we let you know your puppy is ready to go home, you must make arrangements to pick him/her up within reasonable time. If we don't hear back from you within a few days, we will assume that the puppy will be available to others. 


Puppy Visitation:


We do not schedule appointments without deposit; however, if we both agree that you are paying the deposit in person at the time your puppy is ready for visitation (after 4 weeks of age) and your visit is within one-two days of your request, it may be fine. The normal process is, once you have submitted the puppy application form and paid your deposit, we can set up a meet and greet. We allow one family appointment to see the puppy of  choice at the time we agree:-). Puppy appointments are scheduled for Saturdays only; anytime between 11am and 5 pm works well for us. The visit takes place at our residence, in Dade City, FL 33523. We kindly ask that you and the person (s) accompanying you wash hands and lower arms thoroughly with soap and water provided. This is a courtesy we extend, which most families take advantage of. However, we do not allow pet visits. Please leave your fur kids at home. No outside animals are permitted into our kennel. We allow 1 hour visit and pictures with your puppy are ok.

Payment: 

Please be aware we do not offer payment installments. 
We are willing to work with you on most payment arrangements as long as it does not require a credit card and you are paid for by the time your puppy is 8 weeks of age. We accept Venmo and Zelle for deposit ONLY!) The balance must be paid in cash on the day your puppy goes home with you. We have also joined Good Dog Breeder initiative and you can apply for our puppy and pay your deposit securely through their website.

Pricing: 


Our puppies are priced depending on color, coat, gender, and CKC/AKC status. All puppies from litters born after 6/1/22 will be sold with limited CKC or limited AKC registration only. Full AKC or CKC registration may be obtained for an extra fee and it is subjected to a neuter-spay contract agreement. We do NOT require spay/neuter agreements on limited registration.  Returning buyers receive $100 discount per puppy reserved if they have left us a 5 star review.


Lifetime Return Policy: 


Our puppies are our legacy. They are a little embodiment of us that we share with you. Our puppies are not "just a dog." We do not wish for any of our puppies to be faced with being "given up" to a shelter or rescue, or worse. We want you to know we will always have a place or find a furever home for our puppies in need. If for any reason, you find yourself unable to provide for your dachshund, you may return him/her to us for as long as we are in business, and we will provide all the love and care until we can place him/her in a loving home.

Why would you want to reserve a miniature dachshund from us?


I can think of at least 12 good reasons to consider purchasing a puppy from us.

1. We are passionate about the breed. Our dachshunds are family members members first and their needs come before our own. We are also real, honest people. I cannot tell you how many scammers pop up everyday. They are out there. Trust me! 

2. Our miniature dachshunds are family members. They sleep with us; they are groomed and spoiled on a daily basis. I kid you not! We own nine of them. We walk them, bathe them, groom them. We spend a lot of time with them. They live in our house.

3. Our puppies are not an industry. They come from full blooded mini dachshunds. Parents have been DNA tested and are cleared for genetic diseases, so it is highly unlikely, your puppy will suffer from issues that stems from poor genetics.

4. Puppies are registered. This is important so you know the history and family tree of your puppy's bloodline.

5. We invite you into our home so you can experience your puppy for the first time before he goes home. Most places will not afford you that courtesy. If they are legit, you get your puppy at 8 weeks or later and that is your first time laying eyes on that puppy.

6. Value for money. Most reputable breeders will charge you the same or more but give you no papers at all. Some will give you papers but make you sign a spay/neuter agreement for even pet only status.

7. Value for money. Our puppies go home well socialized. They are exposed to various sounds and other animals such as bigger dogs and cats. Crate training and pee pad training initiated. Puppies are also microchipped with a lifetime service free of charge to you. All you have to do is register the number online.

8. Regular puppy updates through our FB page, TikTok, and Instagram accounts.

9. We breed for temperament and conformation. Your puppy will go home pre-spoiled and ready to adjust to his/her new environment. We spend a lot of time interacting with our puppies, especially during 4-8 weeks of age.

10. In your goody bag on check out day, you will be briefed on the important stuff such as your next vet appointment, microchip online registration, CKC/AKC registration form, sample and coupon for the puppy food we use (Purina Pro Plan Puppy food). You won't leave us second-guessing anything.

11. We are friendly people you can always come to if you have a question about your puppy.

12. We build relationships with our Kingpin families. Families who have purchased puppies from us are welcome to join our private group on FB to share their stories and updates on their puppies as they grow https://www.facebook.com/groups/421809562354940/ This group is a safe place for families to post pictures and updates of their puppies.
