HOME RAISED MINIATURE DACHSHUNDS
If you're searching for a Miniature Dachshund Puppy, you have come to the right place! At Sassy Doxies we specialize in breeding AKC Miniature Dachshunds. We breed smooth dachshunds, long hair dachshunds, and now wirehaired puppies too. Living with us are; two black and tans, a black and tan dapple-pie, a smooth cream, two longhair creams, a wirehaired black and tan piebald, a light red piebald, a chocolate pie wirehair, AND a Bloodhound. When I say living with us, that is exactly what I mean. We have no kennels. These dogs are first and foremost our pampered pets. We choose to breed them because we enjoy it, and we believe we provide healthy, high quality pets with a good AKC pedigree.
We are located on a small farm near Winchester Wisconsin. (Use Larsen Wisconsin if you are looking for us on Mapquest because Winchester will show up as being in northern Wisconsin.) It is no longer a working farm, although keeping it up is a lot of work! We have a large garden, several outbuildings that are slowly being renovated, a collapsed barn, and 7 acres of room for the dogs to run. (In case you have never heard of Winchester or Larsen, we are about 12 miles west of Neenah, which is about 30 miles south of Green Bay) It is an interesting location, we are 15-18 miles from Neenah, Appleton, Oshkosh, and New London.
We take pride in breeding Doxie puppies that will become a part of your family. We treat every puppy just as if we were keeping him/her ourselves. (it does make the day when they leave us kind of sad, but we will only sell our puppies to people we believe will provide great homes for them, so that helps) Our puppies are handled and played with many times every day. (They are raised right in the middle of the livingroom.) This helps them to become loving and social dogs. The puppies also enjoy playing with our "pack" of adult dogs when they get to be 6-8 weeks old. Even Bubba, our Bloodhound, loves to play with puppies. Our puppies are sold with a health guarantee and are always current on their shots and de-worming. We want to help your new puppy make the easiest possible transition into his new home.
We would love to talk to you about your special puppy.
Here are some pictures of the dogs and our farm. We are slowly winning the battle with tall grass, weeds, and old farm buildings. (have you ever heard of Teasle? It is particularly hard to get rid of thistle like plant.) The dogs don't care. They have fun wherever they are on the property, as long as their people are with them.
These four pictures go together. In case you don't know about Catalpa Trees........they have huge leaves,nice looking flowers in the spring, and long bean like pods that drop in the fall and spring. You would think that raking up the leaves in the fall would be a real pain, but unlike maple and oak leaves, there really isn't much too them and they completely disappear if you mow over them. The pods too don't need to be picked up as the lawn mower dissipates them nicely. (of course if you have a lawn that you keep looking like a putting green.......never mind.) Last year I saved some seeds and planted them this spring when I started the tomato and pepper plants. They grew nicely and they are planted around the farm now. I am planning on planting some more next year. If you would happen to want some seeds to start some seedlings of your own, just let me know and I will send you as many seeds as you want.
Bubba says....Come on in Bogie!!!! The water's fine!!!! And Bogie says....... No don't think so, I'll just watch.
Remember "Where's Waldo?" Here you need to find Chopper and Peaches. Hint.....only the tails show. The water this year got so high here that it covered half the garden. This section is still too muddy to mow. The dogs think it is a prime hunting ground.
Anyone coming to our gate gets quite a greeting.
Some of these sunflower grew to be 12 feet high.
There is a farm right across the road from us that raises bison, beef cattle, and some crosses between the two. I don't know much about cow breeds, but there really seems to be an assortment of critters. A couple of them have horns that are huge.
I believe this is a "Beefalo"
I am sometimes asked if our dogs get along well together. There are occasional differences of opinion, but generally this is how they get along. A little different version of Waldo--- here you need to find 6 dogs.

It must have been something very interesting that crawled in there.........
