Our Adoption Policies

Susie Thomas and Two New Best Friends

We will never sell our puppies or our adult dogs to puppy mills, brokers, or pet stores under any circumstances. We will sell our puppies only under the following conditions:

1. We will sell our puppies as loving companions to trusted individuals who will provide forever homes and will treat them with loving care. These puppies are purebred and AKC registered but are sold without breeding rights.

2. To ensure their health and safety, we will not release our puppies for adoption until they have reached at least eight weeks of age, have been fully weaned, have completed their first regimen of shots, and have been medically cleared by our veterinarian.

3. We will sell our puppies to professional, reputable breeders who share our commitment to 100% compliance with AKC health and care guidelines; pledge to provide safe, happy, and health homes for our puppies; and who will never sell to puppy mills, brokers, or pet stores but only to trusted individuals.

Our Health Guarantee

Your adopted puppy will be given its first combo vaccine and will be dewormed for common parasites before leaving Dachshunds Unlimited’s home. To activate this warranty, the Buyer is required to have the puppy examined by a veterinarian (at their own expense) within 48 hours from the date of sale. If the veterinary exam reveals that the puppy has a life-threatening genetic defect, the Buyer must provide Dachshunds Unlimited with a copy of the written diagnosis and will contact Dachshunds Unlimited within two business days of the office visit to discuss arrangements for the puppy’s return and replacement. If the puppy should pass away within one year of its date of birth due to a life-threatening genetic defect, the Buyer must provide Dachshunds Unlimited with copies of all veterinary records and a copy of the necropsy report (at the Buyer's expense) if the life-threatening genetic defect was not otherwise diagnosed and documented by the veterinarian at the time of death. Once the required documentation has been reviewed and approved by the Dachshunds Unlimited’s veterinarian, Dachshunds Unlimited will contact the Buyer to discuss arrangements for a replacement puppy of comparable value, which will be provided by Dachshunds Unlimited when the agreed upon replacement becomes available. Replacement of the puppy is the only remedy for the Buyer. Neither reimbursement of veterinary expenses nor refunds of any deposits, payments, or other fees will be made by Dachshunds Unlimited to the Buyer. If the Buyer fails to meet any conditions of sale outlined in purchase contract or mistreats the puppy in any way, the health warranty will be rendered null and void.
