We do not 'sell' or 'rehome' any of our adults or pets. They have been with us since they were babies, and are part of our family.
I can't tell you the number of times I have been contacted by other breeders (especially new kennel breeders) who are "looking for a cheap adult Dachshund for breeding." They think they can set up a quickly profitable breeding program by starting out with adult dogs (rather than taking the time to raise puppies) and breed them as soon as they can. They don't know and don't care about the background of these poor adult Dachshunds.....their only concern is that they are cheap and able to be bred immediately. I shudder to think what will happen to these poor dogs when they are "bred out".
Other breeders might be willing to sell their "adult Dachshunds" - but not me, so do NOT contact me wanting "a cheap adult Dachshund." These Dachshunds are my kids, and just because they are not bred any longer does not mean that they will be booted out the door and be available to scumbag breeders. I am NOT going to respond any longer to these disgusting emails wanting "cheap breeding dogs" - I don't care WHO the emails come from.
If you are a loving home looking for an adult or pet Dachshund just for a pet (versus breeding), please visit a Dachshund Rescue. Many of the wonderful Dachshunds there need a loving home just as much....no, they need a home MORE than any little puppy. SPCAs, Dog Shelters, Dog Pounds and Humane Societies also have their fair share of purebred Dachshunds and Dachshund mixes whose only "crimes" were to have been owned by yahoos who threw them out because they decided to move or decided to have a baby, etc.
Sometimes folks will let their veterinarians know if they want to find a good home for a beloved pet, it wouldn't hurt to contact veterinarians and ask. But be prepared to answer their questions, provide references and the phone number of your own vet - so they can be sure the Dachshund will be going to a responsible home.
A rescue dog that is taken in will NEVER take you for granted; and I think it is one of the most wonderful things in the universe to watch their eyes turn from fearful and frightened, to loving and content. Everyone wants puppies, very few folks want adult dogs. (Please see the pages "Saving Just One" and "Getting Rid of a Pet.")
