#1- First ask to see the AKC Pedigrees on the parents NOT the AKC PAPERS ON THEIR DOGS the pedigrees will show you the puppies family trees this is more important
than the papers on their dogs, you will see if they have inbred dogs, and if they have a lot of Champions in the puppies blood lines, most breeders do not show you or want you to see these pedigrees they want you to think that by giving you AKC Papers
that you are getting a well bred puppy. People who do not want their well bred Dachshund Blood Line to go to just anybody, or Back Yard Hobby Breeders will not want to give out these AKC Papers. So one of the Best way to see if they are good breeders is to
see how fast they want to give out AKC Papers. Never go pick up a puppy just because the pictures was so cute. Meet the breeder and go see where they keep there Dachshunds, and are they Happy & Friendly...
