We expect two new litters of wirehaired dachshunds really soon!

In 2012 we are going to have two litters of puppies.

Keena came in heat on January 15, and we bred her to FC Tom vom Linteler-Forst on January 26 and 27. She should be delivering around March 28. If everything goes well (and with dog breeding you never know) pups would be going to their new homes around June 2-10.

Keena is almost seven years old, and this is going to be her last litter. She was examined by a vet prior to the breeding, had her full blood panel and x-ray done, and everything looks very good. She was declared to be in superb health and got a green light from our vets for breeding.

This is going to be our "T" litter.  Tommy does not have the gene for short coat so we expect all the pups to have wirehaired coats.

This picture was taken on March 20. It does not look like Keena carries a lot of puppies, I would say 3 or 4. We have an appointment with a vet on Monday, March 26, to check how many puppies she will be having.

Paika came in heat on January 24, and we  bred her on February 3 and 5. This is a repeat breeding of our very successful S-litter sired by FC Nurmi v Moosbach-Zuzelek (aka Moose) owned by Chuck Collier, MI. Paika's pups from this litter will have "U" names. Paika does not have the gene for short coat so we expect all the pups to have wirehaired coats.

These pictures were taken on March 20. Paika still has more than two weeks to go in her pregnancy. My estimate is that she will have 5-6 puppies, but of course I might be wrong!

How exciting, cant wait to follow the 2 litters. Tyra was in heat in Sep. She should come now but she always had long time ,8-9 months between. I was recommended by my mentor that I should not have a late litter. No hunter will buy a puppy in Aug/Sep. Our hunting starts 1st Oct. So maybe I wait for next time she is in heat.
I had a request the other day from one who wanted a puppy. Glad because i´m a new breeder and dont have a known name yet.
