AKC Mini Doxies – Monterey, California
Inspected by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 2020, Found to be 100% in full compliance with all AKC rules and regulations. We are Members of the Carmel Dachshund Club in Monterey CA.
We are back!! Previously under ColorfulDachshunds.com. If you are as passionate about Dachshunds as we are and need some Dachshund Happiness and a Reputable Breeder, you’ve come to the right place. We raise quality AKC Purebred Miniature Doxie puppies in a very loving home environment. Puppies are born and kept in our home until they leave. They are held daily and well socialized with children and other pets. They come with a One Year Health Guarantee of any Life threatening congenital disease limited to heart, liver and kidneys only – nothing more. Our babies are very precious to us, so we want nothing but the very best for them, we want our babies to go to stable and loving homes.
We have a Rainbow of colors. We specialize in Miniatures (up to 12 lbs) and sometimes Tweenies (13-16 lbs) which fall between the Mini and Standard weight. Our puppies come in a variety of colors. Piebald’s, Dapples (Camouflage – One of a Kind, no two Dapples are the same – Unique!), Isabella (fawn/tan), Blue/Tan, Black/Tan, Chocolate/Tan, and many more colors in Smooth and Long Coats (Majestic & Gorgeous). Our little Doxies are home raised with lots of love and attention. They have wonderful temperaments, sweet dispositions, they are adorable, playful, well socialized, healthy, and pre-spoiled (no extra charge).
All puppies and Adults are AKC registered. Our goal is to produce Healthy, Happy, Loving Dachshunds with wonderful temperaments. You will receive one of the most loving, loyal, intelligent, clingy (yes, clingy), humorous, and low maintenance breeds there are. Your puppy will be current on vaccines, dewormings, have a One Year Written Health Guarantee, AKC Registration, Puppy Package, and will be Vet Checked prior to leaving. You might find another puppy for the same price or lower, but will they provide peace of mind for what we offer? Please read our reviews and then decide. Don’t forget…you get what you pay for.
Colorful-Dachshunds reserves the right to withhold the sale of any puppy without explanation. If we feel for whatever reason that a puppy is not a good candidate for adoption, we will not sell that puppy.
We are very proud to be part of AKC’s “BRED with H.E.A.R.T.” Program.
As part of AKC’s century-long commitment to advance the health and welfare of all dogs, the AKC has a new program called Bred with H.E.A.R.T. The program gives AKC a new way to engage, encourage and recognize ALL breeders who meet specific health testing standards and who participate in continuing education, and what the breeder makes to the health and well-being of their dogs. An AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T breeder makes an on-going commitment to the health and well-being of purebred dogs by committing to these program requirements:
Certifying that their breeding stock is health tested in accordance with the recommendations of their breed’s AKC Breed Parent Club.
Promising that they will pursue AKC provided or AKC approved continuing breeder education so that they stay current on the best breeding practices, including advances in canine health.
Agreeing to comply with the AKC Care and Conditions Policy, including inspections by the AKC, and promising to share with AKC health testing and continuing education documentation.
Accepting responsibility for the health and well-being of the puppies they produce and for complying with all laws regarding the ownership and maintenance of dogs.
Upholding AKC’s tradition of breeding purebred dogs that are healthy and happy.
Our doors do not close upon the purchase of your new puppy; we are always here to help with any questions or problems you may have. From our heart to yours.
Should you have any questions, please call us at 408-840-1842 or email us at DoxBabies@yahoo.com we’d love to hear from you.
BENEFITS FOR SPAYING & NEUTERING YOU PET
Spaying (for Females) and Neutering (for Males) can have health and behavioral benefits.
For Females, the benefits of spaying include lowering the risk for uterine cancer and mammary tumors,
no more messy heat cycles, and eliminating the chance of accidental breedings that result in unwanted puppies.
For Males, neutering can decrease aggression and the tendency for the male dog who has females on his mind to want to get loose and wander. If it is done early enough, neutering helps do away with scent marking, the tendency for the dog to lift his leg, and leave his “signature” on your furniture. Neutering male dogs also reduces the risk of testicular cancer and prostate disease.
Your Veterinarian can help you make decisions about the right time to spay/neuter your dog.

A Breeder’s Poem
I love my little puppy; she makes my house a home.
She is my very sweetest little friend; I never feel alone.
She makes me smile; She makes me laugh; She fills my heart with love . . .
Did some person breed her, or did she fall from above?
I’ve never been a breeder, never seen life through their eyes;
I hold my little puppy and just sit and criticize.
I’ve never known their anguish; I’ve never felt their pain,
the caring of their charges, through snow or wind or rain.
I’ve never waited the whole night through for babies to be born,
The stress and trepidation when they’re still not there by morn.
The weight of responsibility for this body in my hands,
This darling little baby, who weighs but 60 grams.
Should you do that instead of this . . . or maybe that was wrong?
Alone you fight and hope, one day, he’ll grow up proud and strong.
You pray he’ll live to bring great joy to someone else’s home.
You know it’s all just up to you; you’ll fight this fight alone.
Formula, bottles, heating pads, you’ve got to get this right,
two-hour feedings for this tiny guy, throughout the day and night.
Within your heart you dread that you will surely lose this fight,
To save this little baby, but God willing . . . you just MIGHT.
Day one; he’s in there fighting; you say a silent prayer.
Day two & three, he’s doing well, with lots of love and care.
Day four & five . . . he’s still alive; your hopes soar to the heavens.
Day six he slips away again, dies in your hands on day seven …
You take this little angel, and bury him alone.
With aching heart and burning tears, and an exhausted groan,
You ask yourself, “Why do this? . . . Why suffer through this pain?”
Yet watch the joy your puppies bring, and everything’s explained.
So, when you think of breeders and label them with “Greed,”
Think of all that they endure to fill another’s need.
For when you buy your puppy, with your precious dollars part,
You only pay with money . . . while they pay with all their heart.
