home of dachshunds who steal your heart and soul

Our story ...

We have loved dachshunds all our life. The first dachshund I had when I was born was a short hair, standard red male. He was so stubborn as one dachshund can be. But his love and commitment to us was extraordinary. Best buddy ever.

I got a second dog when my own children were born. Of course a red short haired standard male. Taffy was a full family member. A dog who loved to walk long distances, swim and dig outside. He slept in our bed and wanted to be always close to us.

Losing our loved Taffy, I was so desperate  that I started to look for other dogs and new puppies. There was no doubt that it had to be dachshund. I was looking for short hair miniature or rabbit size dog at this time. Short haired dogs were not available at that time so somehow I started to look for longhaired dogs. Why not? 

It is like murphy’s law : when you are looking, you do not find anything! Finally I found a suitable dog from Russia : miniature longhair boy from kennel Viverville, Hayreddin – our Happy.

Since the waiting and transport time was 2 months, I still looked for other puppies on Facebook. And there was a small rabbit girl in kennel Alluring Star. There was no thinking – I wanted her and right now. And within an hour I had her home, Strong Soul – our Solly.

I started to go to puppy school with them and we did some trick learning. And then proposed to participate in dog show classes. Again – why not? And the next step was dog shows. 

By today we have achieved many champion titles, completed the hunting exams and I still have big plans for my dogs. Long way to go…

On 12.12.2022 we had gotten our first litter, Litter-A Long hair Rabbit Dachshunds. Born 2 girls : Aphrodite and Athena and 1 boy : Apollon.
