Our responsibility as a breeder is the wellbeing of all our puppies. This questionnaire has been compiled to assist with placing the right puppy with the right family.

By filling in this questionnaire, it will help us receive some basic, but necessary information, to aid in our decision of the sale of any of our puppies to an individual or party who is interested in adding a Miniature dachshund to their family. Bringing a dachshund pup into your home is a lifetime commitment. We are looking for those who understand or have a willingness to learn the needs of a dachshund and therefore ask you to answer as honestly as you can. Our promise to you is all information shared is kept confidential. You may find some of the questions confronting or intrusive. Please don’t be overwhelmed by these questions. You are free not to answer these questions if you so wish.
