At Sunset Dachshunds in southwest Colorado, we pride ourselves in raising top quality AKC/ACA mini-Dachshunds. We think our dogs are
beautiful, of course, but the focus of our breeding is on health and disposition. Our family has raised dachshunds for over 25 years. Our
dachshunds have proven to be above average in long, healthy lives and are well known for their loving dispositions and wonderful temperaments.
We specialize in long hair and wire coat doxies.
You can see our adults and available pups on the following pages, as well as read our guarantee.
We raise mini-dachshunds because we love the breed for their qualities of intelligence, loyalty, cleanliness and their fun-loving nature. Dachshunds
are highly loving and affectionate, and their small size makes them ideal for those with limited living space. As a companion, it is hard to find one as
fun and fulfilling as a dachshund. They have lively and playful personalities, and are extremely devoted. Mini-Dachshunds are currently the
second most popular small breed dog according to AKC registrations, and they are ranked 7th in popularity of all breeds. They are small in size, yet
big of heart. Dachshunds are not nervous or yappy like some small dogs are, but are very friendly and loving. When well-bred and well cared for,
they are a very healthy breed. They are excellent pets, very entertaining and spunky, and easily become part of a loving family.
Our dogs are beloved members of our family, and receive the very best in nutrition and care. The mothers are in top condition so that they are
physically and emotionally prepared to produce the best litters possible. We feed top quality food, as well as raw meats and vegetables for
optimum health. Our pups are home raised with lots of love, sunshine and fresh air. Our dogs are DNA tested and guaranteed to be healthy and
well-socialized. Most of our pups have AKC championship lines but our focus is breeding wonderful pups with loving dispositions.
We moved to Colorado from California, where we owned and operated a thriving doggie day care, so that we could focus all our attention on our
dogs. I hold a Master's degree in Behavioral Science and am a Certified Massage therapist, currently working with abused and rescued dogs.
I am certified through AKC as a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, teach obedience and conduct a
weekly puppy socialization class and play group.
I take great pride in producing pups that are cute, gentle and friendly. They are handled and loved from the day they are born,
and are a part of our family. The pups are socialized and exposed to a wide variety of situations that they are likely to encounter in their lives,
so that before being placed they are confident and playful. In the past we have had a yearly reunion for all our pups, and are proud
to know that they are so well loved and cherished by their families.
