About our Dachshunds

Welcome to Nuforest Dachshunds

We breed and show quality AKC mini Dachshunds in all three coat varieties:
Miniature Longhaired Dachshunds
Miniature Smooth Dachshunds
Miniature Wirehaired Dachshunds

  • All our Dachshunds are AKC Registered.
  • We plan each miniature Dachshund litter with the thought of keeping a youngster to show or breed.
  • Each breeding is planned well in advance with the idea of improving the miniature Dachshund with each generation.
  • Our miniature Dachshund puppies are born and raised on our home.
  • Dew claws are removed at 3 days of age.
  • Our Dachshund puppies are wormed at 21 days, 31 days, and 41 days of age.
  • Combination vaccinations are started at 8 weeks of age.
  • The shot recored that goes with each puppy shows what shots and wormings the puppy has had and what it will need during the first 6 months.
  • We don’t let our miniature Dachshund puppies go to their new homes until they are 8 weeks old if picked up here or if we deliver. We won’t ship a puppy until it is 12 weeks of age.
  • Each miniature Doxie has an injected microchip for permanent identification. We have been doing this since the technology was first available in the 1980s.
  • We participate in the AKC’s DNA testing programs.
  • Pet/companion puppies are sold with Limited AKC Registration.
  • A miniature Dachshund purchased to breed or to show will go with Full AKC Registration.
  • “Rescues” are usually $250 and will be spayed or neutered. They will be up to date with their vaccinations before they go to their new families.
  • Our written contract clearly show our guarantees, remedies, and also what we expect of our puppy buyers.
  • Each Dachshund goes home with a 5 or 6 generation pedigree that shows Champions, AKC numbers, colors/pattern.
  • We suggest each new puppy owner purchase a veterinary health insurance policy issued by DVM VPI or a wellness plan from Banfield Veterinary Hospitals.
  • We include a small supply of NuVet vitamins with each “go-home” package and ask that the Dachshund be kept on the supplement for it’s lifetime.
  • Our miniature Dachshund puppies are fed a top quality puppy food. We include a small bag in the “go-home” package. Again, we ask that the Dachshund be fed quality food throughout their lives.
  • We have some lovely stud dogs available t approved bitches. We have frozen semen stored at the Canine Cryobank and are able to ship fresh or frozen semen worldwide.
  • We are glad to refer folks to other reputable/ethical breeders and rescue organizations who also have Dachshunds available in all areas of the country.
  • We enjoy helping others who love Dachshunds get started in dog shows, improve brood stock or who may have issues with their own Dachshunds.
