We've been raising and breeding doxies since 2002, if you'd like any references please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we have a lot of happy customers and even our vet who loves to talk to our future puppy buyers.
So you fell in love with one of our puppies and want more information about purchasing your puppy. Here is some more information to answer any questions you may have. If you have any that are not answered here please feel free to contact me!
Now that I found a puppy I want, what is the next step?
My website is updated daily, so any puppies marked available should be available. However, email me first to make sure that it is. To hold your puppy we require a deposit of $300.00. This deposit is non-refundable unless something happens to the puppy while in my care or if something genetic pops up with that puppy. This protects us from holding a puppy for 8 weeks and having somebody change their mind at the last minute.
We accept postal money orders, Paypal and cash only. We only accept personal checks for the deposit. Your puppy will be pending until we receive your deposit. If we do not receive a deposit within four business days, the puppy will be marked as available again unless other arrangements have been made. The puppy must be paid in full by 8 weeks of age. If the puppy is not paid in full by 8 weeks of age, the deposit is forfeited and the puppy will be listed for sale again unless you have made other plans with me at the time the deposit is put down. We ask that the puppy is picked up by 8 weeks. We understand that people may have plans they cannot change so we will hold puppies for up to an additonal two weeks for $10 per week. Arrangements MUST be made by 6 weeks of age if you need us to keep your puppy past 8 weeks. We prefer our puppies to be in their new home so that they can start the bonding process with their new families. The longer they are here, the more attached they become to us and it's just not fair to the puppies.
Why are your prices higher than the puppies I see in the paper?
I have had several people ask me why my prices are higher than the puppies they see advertised in the paper. We do not use the paper to advertise. There are too many puppies being advertised there by back yard breeders/puppy mills. I always use the saying, "You get what you pay for". Our adults are hand picked to produce quality, well bred, even tempered puppies. We do not breed aggressive, submissive, or dogs with poor structure. We do not breed dogs that produce genetic defects. We only breed sound, healthy dogs. They are all fed a high quality dog food. They are all kept UTD on their vaccinations. Healthy adults produce healthy puppies. Our puppies are born in our home. If I have a weak/small puppy I bottle feed that puppy every 2.5 hours around the clock until it no longer needs it. They are handled by us daily and they are socialized with children, other dogs. They are raised around normal household noise. They are happy, healthy, well rounded puppies by the time they go home. We update new families with weekly pictures of their new puppy so they can watch them grow. They are wormed at 2,4,6, and 8 weeks with pyrantel and Drontal. They are given their first shot at 8 weeks old. They are given their first bath at 4 weeks and are all bathed and groomed before going to their new home. They come with food, and vaccination records. We want you to spend your time bonding with and enjoying your new puppy. Not spent taking the puppy to the vets. We would rather you spent money spoiling your new puppy then paying for vet care for a sick puppy.
I am still not sure about buying a puppy over the internet. Why should I trust and buy a puppy from you?
We understand how scary it can be to purchase a puppy you have seen on the internet. We have tried our hardest to create a website that would give you a clear view of our adults/puppies and tell you about us to help you feel more comfortable. We know that buying a new puppy is very exciting but can also be very stressful. We try to make your buying process as easy and stress free as possible. You are more than welcome to come and see your puppy before putting down a deposit. I do have references available by request. We breed dachshunds because we simply love it and it shows in our puppies. We love them and we know you will too! We want your adventure of getting a new puppy to be a happy, exciting time so that you will enjoy every minute of owning a puppy from Longdox Mini Dachshunds. We love our puppies and we know you will too. We pride ourselves on knowing that you trust us enough to get your new family addition from us.
