"What's that cat doing?"

Welcome to the dachshund kennel at Splendor Farms in Bush, Louisiana, where we Breed Champion Miniature Longhair-Smooth and Standard Longhair Dachshunds. All puppies are raised with love and joy to approved homes, bred for great temperaments is a must. Whether you are looking for your next show dog or a pet on the couch, Splendor Farms has the dachshund for you!
I fell in love with long-haired miniature dachshunds 25 years ago - when I bought the original "Pookie." After Pookie, I got Precious, as a companion for Pookie, and then Princess to show in AKC Conformation shows just for fun! I bred my Precious when she was four and Pookie when she was five. Breeding them to good dogs I realized what it meant to preserve bloodlines, and to obtain the best to breed the best. Best conformation and temperament are foremost, along with health genetics. Though Pookie, Precious, and Princess are no longer with me, their bloodline continues in their offspring, and along the way I have added many other wonderful bloodlines originating in England, Germany, and from some of the old show lines, i.e., Hannelore Heller's Han-Jo, Wagsmore, Heidox, and BarStars.
Splendor Farms' dachshunds are all kept on a monthly heartworm and flea preventative, current on all vaccinations and our puppies are housebroken, crate trained, and have two sets of shots and are able to leave anywhere from 10-12 weeks for pet home and at four to six months for show homes. We strive to keep our pets in a clean and parasite free environment. This effort is to ensure their health, comfort, and your confidence in receiving a pet that has been raised with extraordinary care for his/her new home.
We will NOT:
- sell puppies to puppy mills or pet stores under any circumstances.
- ship or allow pick up of puppies through a third party.
- sell to homes with children under the age of four.
We are proud of our dachshunds and our reputation as a conscientious breeder is very important to us. We are licensed through the State of Louisiana/Parish of St. Tammany, and inspected yearly by St. Tammany Parish Animal Services and the American Kennel Club.
