These guys went fast, all are sold. Thanks to the folks who have a new family member, please send us a pic by email in a month or two. We will probably try this combination again, as these turned out so great; if it is the next heat, that would probably be early August by the time the pups are adoptable age. If you would like to be notified next time we do this you could send us an email to that effect at the address below.

These guys are as "puppy" as you can get. Funny, cute, soft, smart, sweet and irresistable.

Both Dachshunds and Pugs are:
Loving, loyal, Very intelligent, happy, playful and charming, clever, sensitive and excellent companions. Neither dog does well in the cold, or left in a yard, they are indoor dogs. (Although they love walks, and car rides).

A hybrid dog (designer dog) is a specific pairing of different purebred dogs. Not all crosses are happy ones, but a good cross has a combination of the good traits of both ( a genetic phenomena known as Heterosis Effect (see footnote 1), or more commonly, hybrid vigor.

They have their first shots, and are eating solid food (good quality canned)

These guys have had a lot of people contact since birth, and are happy, affectionate, curious, and heathy. They have a good start on becoming really good dogs.

Lucy is an excellent example of a dachshund, with a sturdy, strong body, very smooth coat, and perfectly symetrical markings. Dachshunds do not have dander, they are good for folks with allergies. Lucy is always perfectly clean. She has a wide range of expressions, very smart, and everybody who meets her loves her.. Cooper, the father is a pug from a championship line. Mom is about 20 lbs, dad about 15 - so the pups should grow up in between. This is an easy to care for sized dog, but big on personality and charm.

A pdf of four pup pictures is here, in case you want to print something.

  Footnote 1 Heterosis Effect

"Purebreds and inbreeds often carry genetic disease. Heterosis is the phenomenon where crossing two inbred lines can produce descendants with superior genetic foundation. This increased health and vigor does not create a superior breed, but the advantages obtained from it are what produce hybrid vigor. This goal in this scenario is not to create a new breed, but to create a happy and healthy pet.

Heterosis effect results in a healthier, more vigorous dog with a reduced chance of genetic disease. It is well known in all domestic animal breedings, hybrids 50%-50% mixes of two different breeds will raise the chances of having less genetic diseases because all doubling of detrimental effects will stop in the first generation. This effect often gives non-related individuals stronger descendants than inbreeds"

footnote 2

"The purebred pug itself may have been the first, real American canine craze. Though its origins are older, the pug toddled its way to distinction in the 1870s, appearing on calendars, trading cars and as stubby-faced ceramic tchotchkes. Its celebrity owners included the queen of England." New York Times
