As a little girl, I always had a miniature dachshund to play with at my grandmother’s house. I recall one summer they had a dachshund and her name was “Chloe”. It didn’t take her long to become my “best friend”. We played together all day, took naps together and she even watched me as I bathed at night. Those summer memories were the best as a child growing up in the country.
Fast forward to 25 years later, I found myself acquiring my first miniature dachshund as an adult. She was a beautiful dark red miniature dachshund and I named her Scarlett. Scarlett and I became companions right away. She also became attached to me and followed me everywhere that she possible could. She would look at me in a way that made me think she knew exactly what I was saying…
My daughter mentioned to me one day that she wanted her own miniature dachshund and of course I agreed. We acquired a male miniature dachshund that my daughter adored. Many family members began asking me for a miniature dachshund puppy. The experience of bringing puppies into the world was very rewarding. When I saw how much a child smiled as they picked out their puppy made my heart smile as well.
In 2023, we were voted in the 7 Best Dachshund Breeders in Louisiana. Sometimes they are referred to as dapple dachshunds.
