ADULT/RETIRED AND OLDER PUPS
Kerr Lake Dachshunds is family-owned and operated right here on the shoreline of Kerr Lake. We have limited space within our home and grounds. While we would love to have the ability to keep forever every precious dachshund involved with our selective breeding program, sadly it is not possible. Our females "age out" too quickly since we never breed them until they have experienced several menses past their first estrus and do not breed consecutive cycles. The practice of allowing the females yearly breaks creates healthy dams and healthy litters of quality puppies.This practice also produces young adult females five to six years old that have whelped several litters and who deserve to retire. Dams may be offered with AKC new owner, no breed registration (limited), and will usually need to be spayed in order to continue their healthy lifestyle.
Adult male dogs are recognized by the AKC to breed until 12 years of age. While males may have the capacity to mate far into their golden years, recent studies indicate that older males' offspring may have a greater incidence of medical problems, and we proactively discourage older males' breeding. Offering intact sires withdrawn from our breeding program to selective owners as pets may also occur from time to time and information on retired dogs and will be posted on this page below. Feel free to discuss this opportunity with us if you are seeking an older companion.

We are considering finding loving homes for several of our intact adults. Placements for Skully, Mini Mee, Darcy, Capt Jack Sparrow, and Rocky have been very successful. Presently, we are seeking new placements for Lady, Leia and Longfellow. These dogs will need special people who will be able to return all the unconditional love that these dogs give.
A no show and spay/neuter agreement must be agreed to by the new owners. Call or email us to discuss this offering.
