Desert Sunset Dachshunds is a family breeder taking part in passion for the Dachshund breed. We pride ourselves on quality and health so we have DNA and OFA testing performed on our breeding Sires and Dams. We do this for the love of these canines and to bring opportunities for others who already love the breed and those just getting to know them. Dachshunds are great with kids, adults and other animals. Here at Desert Sunset Dachshunds our pups are raised with love and care and are handled daily and exposed to all types of life elements to help prepare them for their new homes. We are learning and applying the (Badass Breeder) method and this will enrich and better prepare us as breeders, our pups and clients for a most successful future. We have also been accepted and credited as a Responsible Breeders Program with Healthy Badge through We proudly feed our dachshunds Evangers Holistic Foods dry kibble and wet and use high quality nutritional supplements from NuVet Labs.
Most may know of the reference to the short legged long bodied icons popularly known all over the world as "The Weiner Dog". 

The name “Dachshund” is actually German for badger dog. Dachshunds' short legs keep them low to the ground to track scents, and their narrow bodies allow them to crawl into burrows, looking for badgers. Despite their small size, Dachshunds are brave and fierce.
