About Us

IMG_0528I would like to start by thanking you for spending time looking at our website & our extended family. I would like to tell you about how we got here & I am sure that some of you will be able to relate. I went to college knowing that I wanted to be a Med Tech student, but the grants went the other way so I went into teaching. I taught school for 9 years with my favorite subject being Advanced Placement Biology where I could work in genetics.

Here at Heartfelt Dachshunds we specialize in breeding AKC Miniature Dachshunds in all colors, coats, and markings, with a special emphasis on both the English Cream Dachshunds and Wire Hair Dachshunds. Our Dachshunds are happy and healthy fun loving dogs that are always excited to meet new people. They won’t shy away from visitors.

We care about our dogs and the homes they will eventually go to so we encourage you to spend time with the puppies and their parents when you visit. We are also able to give you guidance on caring and training for your Doxie puppy and we are always available for your assistance after you take your puppy home. We are the top breeder of miniature dachshunds in North Carolina.

I tried breeding 12 years ago for the first time and WOW!!! The excitement, the possibilities of color, the relationships I felt with my dogs, the cute little baby faces, and the CHALLENGE it made me feel. I was hooked. An addiction worse than drugs, or gambling, breeding dachshunds.

I explained to my husband that I was not hurting my health & it gave me so much pleasure, so we started collecting dachshunds. I can’t explain the feeling any further except to say that if you get this addiction, call me & we might let you join our support group of dachshund lovers that have 20 or more. (haha)

We started growing the dachshund colors in the best quality we could find. We are now proud to offer English Imports & Isabella and tan as well as the blues & cremes. We also have all the markings. We offer piebald, dapple, & brindle.
We occasionally have a double dapple but I do not breed for doubles because I do not like the health risk for the puppies. All of our dachshund puppies are born in our home with our family and well socialized with our three children.

The dachshunds are part of our family and we carry as many as 10 every where that we go.
Each dog is an individual with its own personality & identity that contribute to the variety of our extended family.

All dogs are AKC registered & English Imports JKC, AKU, & AKC
Registered.

I had many experiences in buying my dogs. Some good & some very bad. I tried to set up policies that would establish breeding ethics to be different & better than some of the experiences that I had. All puppies come with a health guarantee that the puppies will be free of birth defects & be current on wormings & shots that are needed for the age of the dog you purchase.

My goal in breeding is to have healthy beautiful puppies that I can place in homes with a healthy environment for the family of the puppy.
I would like for the experience that you have in getting a new member of your family to be a good one.

My Phone, Email, and door are always open to others who need to reach me for any reason. I enjoy most of all the relationships that I have made as a result to my animal family.

I invite you to call me at any time for any questions, concerns, or advice that you may have to offer. I hope that God will bless your family as He has blessed us & our canine family. Again, thanks for the time you spent here.
