Miniature Long Haired Dachshund Puppies for Sale
We only breed when we want another dog ourselves so the few we let go are always of the very highest standard with no expense spared for care, DNA PRA testing, health checks, selective breeding, all extremely well socialised from an early age. Health and fit for life and purpose, not quantity are our primary concerns. We generally price around £800 for Black and Tan's and from £975 for Chocolates and Dapples with bitches being quite a bit more expensive. Dapples are quite simply more expensive because as you can no longer mate dapple to dapple (KC registration rules changed 1/1/10), double the amount of dogs are needed to be kept/or used to produce dapples. A dapple dog and bitch (2) now has to be a dapple dog with another colour bitch and a dapple bitch with another colour dog (4). Also only around 50% or much more frequently less of the pups in each litter will actually be dapples when one dog is not a dapple. See dapple chart HERE. Beware of buying from puppy farmers and back street breeders as it will often equal very expensive to keep later, along with all sorts of unpleasant behavioural problems some puppies will have when kept in poor conditions and not raised correctly.

We have always prided ourselves on being 100% above board and straight and as part of that honesty unlike others who have on very rare occasions had the odd double dapple pup kept it all behind closed doors and secret we are being totally open and transparent about it. The litter born on 12-6-12 in our eyes should not have been born until around 19/21st June as the chocolate dog (PRA Clear) mated with a chocolate dapple (PRA Carrier) on three occasions around April 16 - 20 was not due until then and should have been a litter of chocolates and chocolate dapples only!
What turned up was:
Chocolate Dapple Bitch
Silver Dapple Dog
Chocolate Double Dapple Bitch*
Silver Double Dapple Bitch*
Silver Double Dapple Dog*
This from a genetics point of view is impossible so on further investigation we have concluded 100% that our silver dapple dog (PRA Clear) must have mated with our chocolate dapple when we were away on holiday and some of our dogs were in kennels as we could only take a limited number of dogs to the camp site we were on. The kennels assure me they were separate all the time but logically it must have happened then given that was the week beginning April 9th which ties in numbers wise with when they were born on 12-6-12 plus the only possible explanation for the colours in the litter. He was also the only dog left in kennels and there were no other dapple dogs at that time. The mating from an interbreeding relations point of view is fine no conflict and from a PRA point of view is also fine in that there will be no affected puppies. How ever a Dapple to Dapple mating as of the 1st of Jan 2010 is no longer recognised by KC for inclusion in the main register. How ever the KC does have an additional register for such dogs and as such they will be registered on the KC Companion Dog Register. They WILL ALSO STILL BE COVERED under the KC accredited breeder scheme!
The Chocolate Dapple Bitch and Silver Dapple dog are 100% and as such there are no health issues with them.
*The double dapple puppies do have a low risk of being born blind and or deaf and as such until they are a bit older and we get specialists to check them out there is a health question mark over them. If any of them do have any sight or hearing issues we will keep them as our own. Those that do not have issues we will let go to selected pet homes ONLY. Please note they can't be registered on the main register or shown in the UK with the KC. How ever the KC does have an additional register for such dogs and as such they will be registered on the KC Companion Dog Register which does allow them to shown in Companion Dog Shows. As these are rare with most people having never seen one before or ever likely to we invite those interested in owning one of these truly stunning dogs to contact us to register their interest pending the outcome of medical tests. Double Dapples have prominent white markings in addition to the normal dapple markings. For more information on Double Dapples please see Double Dapples in the menu.
