About Us

About our AKC Miniature Dachshund puppies:

Owner Brad Austin found a “pupkin” peeking out at him from his “Hallo-wiener pupkin” pile... His little wire girl, Chica.

Our puppies are born and raised in our home and are very well socialized by the time they go to their new families between 8 & 12 weeks of age. We have grandkids that live close by who are always eager to hug, love and play with our doxie youngsters.

About our Dachshunds:

There are no aggressive, grumpy Dachshunds at Nuforest. All are friendly, socialized, and enjoy people. Our mamma’s are very pleased to show off their babies. Strangers can reach into any of our whelping boxes and not fear getting even a growl from the dam.

Most of our adult Dachshunds do live outdoors in large, clean, well maintained kennel runs. After all, we are the largest most active Dachshund Show Kennel in the USA …. but don’t think these doxies are neglected or unloved! As you walk through the kennel you will see that all come eagerly up to the gates with tails wagging and “smiles” on their faces. Ask anyone who owns a NUFOREST DACHSHUND about the intelligence and delightful personality of their dog!!

About Us:

We are Bill and Susan Buck. We are retired, Bill from the San Diego Fire Department and I, Susan, from owning and managing a large boarding kennel. Now we can devote all of our time to our Dachshunds

We have been breeding and showing since 1974 and have bred and/or owned over 50 champion Dachshunds down through the years … so we have lots of experience and knowledge! We are very lucky that we are able to keep something from each of our breedings so we know how we are doing as we strive to improve our breed with each new generation.

We are members of the Dachshund Club of AmericaNational Miniature Dachshund Club, The San Diego Dachshund Club, Western States Miniature Dachshund Club, and the Mt. Palomar Kennel Club.

We are also members of Malibu Yacht Club and have sailed many, many blue water nautical miles … See some of our sail boats. Did you know that Miniature Dachshunds make wonderful “boat” dogs? Our little wire girl Diva loves to sail. Her job is to keep pirates and sea monsters away. Dachshunds are also great companions in motor homes and RV’s since they are easily litter boxed trained.

Our Dachshunds are entered in well over 100 AKC events each year. We show our own dogs and also have professional dog show handlers exhibit our mini doxies at the shows we cannot attend.

We study canine genetics, and attend lectures and seminars to continue our education. We have done test breedings to prove or disprove theories. We have done “color” breedings and have a proven working knowledge of colors and patterns. We have presented programs at club meetings and events to share our knowledge about genetics, breeding, whelping, training, etc.

I used to write monthly newsletters for the San Diego Dachshund Club and Mt. Palomar Kennel Club. My articles have appeared in dog publications across the country. You can also read some of my articles online, by clicking the Articles link here or on the menu to the left.

We are the kennel that other breeders come to when they want to improve their own breeding programs. We enjoy helping folks who are new to dog shows, breeding, or are pet owners who need some help working through a problem. We are very easy to talk to, so if you have questions, please ask!

Please contact us to see what puppies, teens, show prospects, adults or rescues are currently available. We don’t post photos of these on our web pages because we want to talk to each prospective owner personally before selling a puppy or placing an older dog.

Contact us if you have questions or need Dachshund information, or just want to chat.

Visitors are WELCOME!!

WWe enjoy showing our lovely miniature longhaired Dachshunds, our smart miniature smooth Dachshunds, and our wonderful miniature wirehaired Dachshund to folks.
