|We are Clyde and Kim White, married for 31 years living in South Central PA. We have two
children, (pictured on right) grown and no longer live at home. My husband & I own & operate a
Personal Care Retirement Home next door to where we live since 1988. I am a Licenced
Administrator, and take 24 class hours of education or more each year. Since I am a motherly
type person and enjoy caring for people and living creatures as I would rescue small kittens
found outside and nurse them to health and find them a home. We kept 4 in our home with us
but would find homes for the other kittens as I could not keep them all. We first decided to get a
dachshund for Christmas the year of 2005. We never owned one before. Upon looking at the
smooth coats, the lady asked if we ever seen a "long haired" dachshund.
We never knew their was long haired ones. She had a litter that was 3 weeks old. They were
adorable. We picked a little girl and her name now is Daisey. Upon weekly visits to see our
puppy, we noticed a little long haired red boy running around that was really cute. The folks said
he wasn't for sale. He was going to be a breeder male for them. After two more visits the folks
said, "If you still like him, he's for sale, we found another one". So we ended up going home with
"Rosco" even before we got our little girl at 8 weeks old.
So the story goes....They were intended to be "pet's" however I thought I might enjoy breeding
because they are so nice and lovable. After much research and reading about breeding I felt
ready to give it a try. Every delivery is exciting and nerve racking hoping all goes well. Sadly
things can go wrong in a delivery and loose a pup here and their or end up at the vet with a
c-section. All in all it is rewarding and hard work from birth to 8 weeks with caring and cleaning.
They love to lay in your lap and be center of attention. When Rosco & Daisey were grown,the
vet said Rosco was to big for Daisey, so we had to find a smaller male. So one dog lead to
another, then another, then another....my daughter said I have the empty nest syndrome.
My nest is not empty now!
ABOUT OUR DOG'S:
Our dogs are our pets, like one huge family with lot's of kid"s!
They all have different personalities, behaviors and habit's.
My females are planned breedings, no "accident's" here.
I do not force breed my female's. If they turn the male away, then so be it. They are not left with
the male for the entire week to be hounded constantly by the male. Ties with the male of choice
are monitored to ensure a successful tie or not. Due dates are more accurate and I am fully
aware of when pups are due. I do not leave the mother during labor and delivery even if it
means I stay up all night. I assist if needed. I do cut the cords, stimulate, warm and dry the
puppy, suction, and ensure they nurse right away on the mother.
Our female's are given their proper rest and sit out times during breeding years. Some of our
retired breeders may be available from time to time. They make wonderful companions. I am
very selective where they would go and make sure it is a suitable placement.
Our breeding dogs are healthy, up to date on shots.
Regular wormings. Have straight teeth and backs. They have good temperaments;
we do not have any aggressive or biting dogs.
I have taken a pet CPR & First Aid Class and done a lot of research and reading on whelping
and delivery before getting started. I feel responsible for each and every puppy that is born and
make sure it has the best I can give.
|It is my desire to breed for temperament being the most important, then for conformation and
color. I will not breed a dapple to a dapple or a dapple to a piebald.
A dapple to a piebald is a double pattern and you would not know how to registered it, you can
only pick one. It can also make some very unattractive looking dogs which is not fair to the
breed. A dapple bred to a dapple makes a double dapple pattern and some pups can be born
blind, deaf, or missing limbs. It is not worth the risk.
It is my desire to produce happy, healthy puppies in a home environment where they hear every
day noises such as the phone, tv, and sweeper. Puppies that are held, loved and played with to
help with the adjustment to a new home.
Puppies are fully weaned and separated from mom at 6 week's old. This helps with the
adjustment to a new home. Their is nothing worse than bringing home a new puppy that is not
weened or been separated from mom. My puppies are also taught to go potty on the paper or
pad starting at 3-4 weeks. They soon learn to go "their" and not in their sleep and play area.
This will help with outside training...which they are ready for when they leave.
I enjoy being able to offer a variety of color's, pattern's, and coat's, Everyone likes something
different, it's a matter of personal taste. I like that the "dachshund" breed, do not all look alike.
We offer true miniatures, 11lbs or less, and tweenies, 12lbs to 15lbs.
We do not have any standards which are 16lbs. to 35lbs.
I strive to better the breed by looking for quality pedigree's in my breeders. It is well worth the
wait if you want a certain color or coat for a clean, well adjusted, happy, healthy puppy. I spend
countless hours with my dogs...a full time job that I love and enjoy very much.
