Dachshund Puppy For Sale in CROWLEY, TX, USA

Description:

We have one puppy available for deposit from our current litter! He will be ready to go home on December 27. Little "Green" is the sweetest little boy, so eager to please the humans around him. He gets visibly excited when we praise him for going potty in the grass or for sitting to say "hello." You can just see his face light up! He runs so fast to get a toy or bounce up the doggy steps, and then turns around really quickly to see if anyone saw him. Then, when we say "yaaaay!" he crouches down to the ground, wags his tail, and crawls over to get some pets. His conformation is very good, especially looking at his back legs and his eyes/stop on his face. Teeth are great, no overbite. We have been working on potty training since about 4 weeks, so that is nearly perfect. All of the puppies in this litter are potty trained to real grass, and actively leave their crate to potty in the grass at the other end of their pen before returning to bed or play time. He eats from a Kong chew toy, which encourages self-soothing during alone time and chewing on doggy-appropriate items. Bite inhibition is coming along well, and he actively seeks out humans of all ages and older dogs without any kind of fear. He is accustomed to household noises like banging pots, the vacuum cleaner (the puppies sleep through that now), slamming doors, flinging garbage bags, video game noises, etc. There are no issues with submissive peeing. If you are interested in adding this little boy to your family, please fill out the PUPPY INTEREST FORM on our website or contact me at 817-627-9880! I'm happy to provide more information, including pictures, videos, references, etc. We do not "ship" our puppies, but they can fly in the cabin with you or a puppy nanny, or I'm happy to meet midway as well.

Items Included: vaccinations; micro-chipped; 2 puppy training books and access to many short training videos; 4 weeks of premium raw puppy food; large puppy supply pack; 24/7 LIFETIME breeder support

Questions You Should Ask the Breeder

1. Are the puppies' parents "certified"? This means that certain breeds are often at risk for genetic conditions such as hip problems, heart problems and eye problems. Most of these diseases are inherited, meaning the disease is passed from parent to puppy. Many breeders will have their dogs evaluated and tested for that disease and ultimately "certified" by a veterinary specialist to be disease-free. 

2. What are the sizes of the puppy's parents? Know how big the parents are, to get a good idea of how big your puppy will be. Is that the size dog you want? 

3. Ask to meet the dogs parents. If possible, meet the puppy's parents. Notice if they appear to be in good health and evaluate their overall temperament. Are they shy, aggressive, or well adjusted? 

4. How have they socialized the pups? Have the pups been around other dogs? Other people? Socialization is critical in puppies 6 – 16 weeks old. Proper socialization consisting of good experiences of a puppy with other puppies and lots of different ages, sizes and types of people will give you the best chance at having a well-adjusted dog. 

5. What vaccines has the puppy had? How many shots has he received and when will the puppy be due for his next puppy shot?

6. Have the puppies been dewormed? All puppies are born with worms and routine deworming is recommended. 

7. Have any of the puppies in the litter been sick? If so, what were the signs, the diagnosis and treatment? 

8. What visits has the puppies had with the veterinarian? Have they been examined and declared "healthy"? If not, what problems have they had? Have they been on any medications? 

9. What is their guarantee? What guarantee does the breeder give with their puppies? If the puppy is found to have a severe illness, what will they do? This is a difficult topic but one that is a lot easier to cover up front rather than later. 

10. Recommendations? Ask the breeder for a couple references of puppy owners that they have sold within the past year. CALL them. Find out if the breeder was fair, if they were happy with their pups, and how any problems were handled. 

11. Breeders contract? Does your breeder require a breeder's contract? If so, what is in it? Is the breeder willing to take back the puppy at any time, if you can't keep it? 

12. Limited registration. Some breeders require that you spay or neuter your dog by a certain age. If that is the case, that may not be a problem but it is best to know before you get your puppy. 

13. What is the family history? Ask if the breeder has information about the breed line. For example, ask how long the dogs have lived and what they have died from. Write it down. This may be important for monitoring your pet as he gets older. 

14. What is the breeder currently feeding the puppy? Regardless of what they are feeding, it is ideal to continue feeding the same food for the first few days at home to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances. If you choose to change the diet, do it gradually. 

15. Health certificate and certificate of sale. Ask the breeder if he will supply a health certificate for the puppy issued by his veterinarian. Some states require also a certificate of sale.

16. Does the breeder belong to a breed club? Ask for references.
