Where are you located?
We are located near Loma Linda, CA (Reche Canyon) off the 10/215 freeways.
Are your dogs American Kennel Club (AKC) certified?
Yes! All our dogs are AKC certified. Pedigrees are available on request.
Do you sell other kinds of dachshund puppies, like smooth-haired or standard size dachshunds?
Yes and no. All dachshunds are soo cute! However the creams have stolen our hearts and we have decided to only specialize in the long-haired English cream miniature dachshund variety. Our cream family now includes pale creams, shaded creams, black and creams and cream dapples. We also occasionally have other colors and short haired dachshunds. Feel free to check in if you’re looking for a particular color.
How much do your puppies cost?
Our pricing ranges from $1600-3500 depending on coloring and gender. Contact us for specifics and other details.
Will I get AKC papers with my puppy?
No, we do not provide AKC registration papers unless we receive proof of spay/neuter. We sell our puppies as pets only. We can provide you with a limited AKC application for your puppy after spaying/neutering if you request one.
Do you offer a health guarantee?
Yes! We offer all new puppies a 1 year health guarantee against any life-threatening genetic defects through Nu Vet (please ask to see contract if you’re interested in this). Feel free to contact us for more information on Nu Vet supplements and other ways they can benefit your puppy!
Why do some puppies have the tear stains on their eyes?
We get this question a lot, and the short answer is it’s genetic and eventually goes away on it’s own. From our experience 98% of puppies eventually outgrow them, usually once they’re a few months old. Our vet says it’s teething related, and we’ve also heard they’re caused by immature tear ducts. About 50% of our pale cream puppies have tears at some point starting at around 5-6 weeks old.
How much is a puppy deposit?
The deposit is 25% of the cost of the puppy, with the balance due in full at pickup. We cannot hold a puppy without a deposit, no exceptions.

How many deposits do you take per litter?
We take 2-3 deposits per gender, per litter. Deposits are first come first served, and reserves your place in line in a specific litter. We will move you up if there is availability sooner, unless you have asked otherwise. If after the litter is born, there is no puppy of your desired gender/color, you receive your deposit back or have the option to roll it over to a different litter. Besides that, all deposits are non-refundable (please don’t ask us to! We hate being the bad guy but this is non-negotiable).

At this time we are not accepting visitors but hope that can change soon. We normally love visitors. Contact us to make an appointment and we may be able to work out a time in the future that works for all of us.
