Welcome to Paradise Dachshunds - AKC Breeder Of Miniature Smooth & Long Hair Dachshunds

We Breed For Quality, Not Quantity, And It Shows!


At the top of this page is a carousel slide show of many of our beautiful dachshunds. We feel it is very important for you to see the actual dachshunds used in our breeding program. What you see is what you get! Please go to  About Us for more information about Paradise Dachshunds.

Mission Statement

Our mission is threefold:

1) To strive to breed higher quality, genetically sound and healthy puppies for both the show ring and the conscientious pet owner.

2) To educate the prospective owner to assure that each puppy has every opportunity to be loved and well cared for during the duration of its life. 

3) To assure that each breeding is researched and planned for the betterment of the breed and to follow the AKC & Dachshund Club of America's Code of Ethics.

Other Information

Paradise Dachshunds support the AKC's, The Dachshund Club of America's, and the SPCA's position on spaying or neutering companion animals on a spay/neuter contract with AKC 'limited' registration papers. I will be of support to all my owners and am willing to take back any dachshund I have bred, no questions asked. I do not want my dachshunds to ever be transferred or sold without my knowledge. We hope you will come back to our site more than once and if you have suggestions or questions, feel free to contact us at anytime!

Congratulations On Your New Dachshund

Shown below is my very first dog show weekend in June 2009 at Wrentham, MA. I was 51 years old and learning the ropes! Here I am with Tessie waiting to go into puppy hound group and the thunderstorms were rolling in. Tessie is Jemma's dam (by Opie, a b/t dog from Add-Sim's lines ) and Ch Stretch and Gigi's granddam (by Ch Boone x Jemma) as well as Skye and Geena's great granddam (by Champion Ryan & Gigi) Breeding Ch Ryan to Gigi was a line breeding on Ch Add-Sim's Good Time Charlie MS (although I didn't realize it until recently when someone with incredible knowledge on the pedigree told me what I had accomplished) It is no wonder both these young girls are very promising and have such a beautiful structure, great forechest, good bone and very balanced from head to toe.

Tessie didn't have a stellar pedigree, but she was a beginning of so many great things to come and it was at this show where I was introduced to Cliff Simones of the famous Add-Sim's kennel from Florida.

I am VERY excited because as of March 2014, I have decided to breed closely with the older Add-Sim's, Sunrise and Criscross lines as I move forward in my breeding program. I have recently gained the trust and support of a wonderful mentor for my future in smooth miniatures. I will be working to create my own Paradise Dachshund type which includes an elegant head, pleasing expression, good length of neck, beautiful forechest, level topline, tight feet and a balanced body with confident movement and overall refinement.

A couple of exciting announcements coming in April!!

We Do Not Ship Our Puppies

We do not sell puppies sight unseen. We prefer everyone come to our home or meet us at a dog show for an initial visit. We can also meet you at the airport or deliver the puppy to you by car for an extra fee. We are courteous, helpful and ready to answer any questions that you may have. We require everyone to complete a puppy application and meet the puppy in person.

Click here for more information on puppies and litters we may be planning. The picture below is the sire of our Apr 21, 2014 litter - Ch Pipers Mr. Longfellow - Henry!

Hi Helen - Just wanted to say hello and update you on Fig. She is doing so well! We went to the vet to get her 12-week shots today and she is up to 5lbs! She is in tip-top shape and just the best, cutest, happiest little weenie we could have hoped for. I've attached a picture of her from this past weekend.

Hi Helen, I just wanted to let you know that Rudy passed his test and is now an AKC star puppy. He now moves up to beginner basic 2 and then canine good citizenship. He is filling out in his chest. He is a delight and smart as a whip.
Martha, Princeton

Thank you Helen for trusting me with these two amazing dogs, Stretch and Skye. They bring so much laughter and joy to our house and thank you for getting me involved in conformation show ring. Your help and guidance I could not do without.
