HOW TO ADOPT FROM US
We appreciate your interest in our dachshunds and would like to know you better! We are very friendly and love to talk about our dachshunds. Please tell us a little about yourself and answer the questions on our puppy application.
PUPPY APPLICATION LINK

Health Guarantee/Sales Contract Link
Puppies are reserved by placing a deposit. We do not place by waiting list. PLEASE DO NOT SEND US MONEY WITHOUT COMMUNICATING WITH US FIRST.
PUPPY/ADULT DEPOSIT LINK
We are a state licensed business and required to collect Ilinois sales tax at 6.75%. We are listed with the Il Dept of Agriculture.
The deposit is $300 and will go towards the balance due on the puppy or adult canine of your choice. Your deposit is considered a fee for holding a canine. It is an agreement that you intend to purchase said canine. When you place a deposit we are doing you the service of holding a particular puppy/dog and will no longer be advertising the canine as available. If you place a deposit on one of our canines and change your mind the deposit is not refundable. Puppies are held until they are a minimum of 8 weeks of age and mentally ready to leave the mother.
We accept cash payments, USPS money orders, major bank certified checks and Zelle. If we are holding a puppy for you payment must be made in full by 8 weeks of age. We may hold your puppy longer than 8 weeks if needed. Be aware, there will be a boarding fee of $8 daily plus any health care costs such as vaccinations. We consider the puppy yours once paid for and your financial responsibility at that time.
Once a pregnancy is confirmed we will post photos of the parents on our UPCOMING LITTERS page. We will accept two preborn deposits per litter at this time: One male and one female. You must state the sex, coat type, and color/pattern desired when placing a deposit. If the litter does not produce the sex or color noted you may elect to have your deposit refunded or held for a future litter. The remainder of the litter becomes available after they are born.
TIP: Jumping down is very hard on the dachshund back. It is best to teach your dachshund not to jump on furniture. Provide a ramp or pick him/her up if you want your buddy in your lap.
