Distinctive Dachshunds
Specializing in unique and one-of-a-kind dachshunds!

Claudia and Jason Johnston

We are breeders of top quality Miniature AKC and CKC Dachshunds, specializing in rare coat colors including piebalds and unique dapples.  We follow a selective breeding program that emphasizes conformation, health, and temperment.  Our puppies are born and raised right in our home, where they receive plenty of love, care, and attention.  They are guaranteed healthy and spoiled rotten.  By the time they are ready to be placed with their
new owners, our Dachshund puppies
are very well-socialized and make a
wonderful addition to your family.  

As very responsible breeders, the health of our dogs and satisfaction of our clients is a very important concern for us. Our dogs are thoroughly screened for hereditary health problems prior to breeding, and are check by our veterinarian on a regular basis.  Puppies are vet-checked, vaccinated, and de-wormed before they are placed with their new owners, and are guaranteed to be free from any puppy illnesses.  We offer a comprehensive health guarantee with each puppy we place, as detailed in our sales contract.  As responsible breeders, we recommend that puppies be spayed or neutered at the appropriate age.  We even offer a $20.00 rebate to help with the costs of these
procedures.  This helps us to do our part against irresponsible breeding practices, and to help
reduce the number of unwanted dogs in shelters
and rescue.

When it comes to placing our dogs with their new owners, we are careful to ensure that potential buyers are able to offer a good home where the puppy will receive the care, attention, nutrition, exercise, and veterinary care that it needs in order to live a long, happy, and healthy life.  Potential owners should have a securely fenced backyard with lots of room for the puppy to play.  They should have researched the Dachshund breed to make sure it is the correct choice for their family, and have the time, facilities, and resources to provide for the puppy's emotional, nutritional, and exercise needs.  We are happy to provide any advice and support that may be needed in adjusting to life with your new family member, and we love to keep in touch with our new "extended" families. 
We sincerely hope that all of our
puppy placements are permanent,
but we are always willing to take a
puppy or dog back in the unfortunate                                   event that the new owners are unable to keep it.

A Little Information On The Dachshund Breed

Dachshunds come in three coat types; smooth, long, and wirehair, and also in two sizes; miniature and standard.  A miniature in Dachshunds, according to AKC, is a dog weighing eleven pounds or under at one year of age.  We have had a couple of our Dachshunds go over the weight limit and become "tweenies" (Dachshunds between Mini and Standard, a slang term).  The variety of color and pattern choices make the breed even more interesting and attractive.  Patterns include dapple, double dapple, brindle, and piebald. We raise all of these patterns along with the solids. 
This breed does not drool, slobber, or smell.  The longhair Dachshund only sheds periodically when growing a new coat.  The others are relatively "shed-free", making this breed a wonderful choice for allergy sufferers.  These dogs are very adaptable creatures fitting well into city, country, house, apartments, indoors, or outside.  They are excellent pets for children and the elderly, and can be excellent guard dogs.  With the proper care a Dachshund can live to be 14-16.
