About Cool Runnin Dachshund
Welcome to our site!
We are a small, in home breeder, of beautiful, quality Miniature Dachshunds. We are located in Polo, MO.
All of our dachshunds are AKC registered.
Our dachshunds are our pets and are raised in our home with access to a fenced yard. Our dachshunds are crate trained for naps and home alone time.
Our puppies are also raised in our home, in the living room, with cameras for night viewing. We are very hands on with the puppies and they are well socialized. They are around and use to normal household noises. The puppies will be dewormed every two weeks. They will have a vet visit prior to leaving our home and will be up to date on all vaccinations.
Here’s little something about us.
Dickie and I have been together for 20 years and we own a small trucking company. We long haul from Denver CO to Kearney MO. Dickie is from Colorado and I’m a Texan. We live out in the country on 12 acres in Polo, Missouri an hour NE of Kanas City, MO.
My family got our first dachshund when I was just 13. He was a shaded red and we named him Fritz. He was the beginning our my love for dachshunds. He lived with my parents so when I got a place of my own I couldn’t help but get a dachshund for my place too. I got a shaded red and named her Klara.
That’s when I began to discover the world of breeding. Klara only had two litters as she got eclampsia with the second and passed away shortly after giving birth (her vet said there was nothing to worry about).
I learned the hard way to listen to my gut, take action and have a backup plan in place. I raised her four pups with the help of my entire family as they required constant care and feedings every two hours. They all survived and I kept a little girl and named her Karla.
Our next dachshund was a little shaded red boy named Matrix. He was afraid of nothing. He took care of the unwanted critters on our place, including a red fox. He always alerted us to the uninvited snake or turtle. He was loving and loyal and lived to the age of 10. He passed away in 2016.
Shortly after losing Matrix, we lost our beloved rescue mix Roscoe. He was half lab and half good dog according to the Vet. Lol We got him in December of 2005 when he and his siblings were found in a dumpster, taped up inside a box, in Denver CO. How can people be so cruel??. He was the most loving and kind dog I have ever seen. He got cancer and in spite of treatment he passed away in 2017.
We still had our much loved Cujo (Pepper) dog. We rescued him in 2002 when he was just two years old. He was a smart, loyal dog and leader of the group. He helped keep the critters away. He and Roscoe once rescued Matrix from a coyote!. What a sight to see on our front porch!
After losing both Matrix and Roscoe, we began looking for a new dachshund. This is when I discovered that they come in all colors and coats. WOW!! It’s amazing what we didn’t know before internet. All the 2 legged kids had moved away and Iwas working from home. It seemed like the perfect time to raise and breed these beautiful animals.
That takes us to today. I have five females and one male. They have been hand picked from Tennessee, Missouri, Arizona and Colorado. I love these beauties and they bring joy to my life. I hope their little ones bring joy to your!
1. What does Dachshund mean?
The breed's name "Dachshund" is German for "Badger Dog" with the "Dachs" being badger and "hund" being dog.
2. How long do dachshunds normally live?
Dachshunds live between 14 to 20 years. So, be prepared for the long haul.
3. Are stairs bad for Dachshunds?
Jumping up and down from furniture or in and out of cars as well as going up and down stairs, puts a lot of pressure on a Dachshund's long back and it could lead to them suffering from a condition known as IVDD. Using a ramp can be useful.
