Welcome to Country Creek Dachshunds, AKC miniature dachshunds raised here. My name is Lori Martinson and we are located in Smithville, Tennessee. I’m a proud breeder of AKC Miniature Dachshunds. Breeding for quality not quantity, temperament, conformation, health and the love of the breed.
My love of dachshunds started nearly 50 years ago when i was just a small child. I grew up with a smooth coat red miniature dachshund, her name was Peppy. She was such a sweet cuddly 6 pound little girl; who let me and my little sister dress her up in doll clothes and push her around in a baby stroller.
After almost raising 5 children, I was down to my last child I had left at home, my only daughter, Alysia. That was when i decided it was time to start doing what I had always dreamed of, raising these sweet little dachshunds. We started raising these doxies back in 2014. I knew right from the start this is what I am meant to do. I look forward to getting up every morning. Alysia, was a big help, even as a teenager. In fact, after she graduated high school and had started college she decided she too wanted to raise them. So at that point she got her own first dachshund and started raising them together with me in the same household. Now she has moved out and is breeding and raising these doxies on her own. My daughter, Alysia, is Red Barn Farms Minis and doing a great job.
All my dogs are raised in my home as part of my family. In fact they eat better than we do. We feed our dogs a 100% balanced RAW diet. “See our RAW Feeding Page“.
If we are to far for you to drive; we do offer a few different transportation options. One option is your new puppy can fly in cabin with a flight nanny to you; for a reasonable fee at the buyers expense. “See our transportation page“.
We are a breeder of miniature dachshunds in solids with tan or cream points, solids with no points, piebalds, dapples, dappled piebalds, brindles; all colors are possible including creams in smooth coats and long hairs.
Our puppies are Vet. checked, dewormed,, Utd on vaccines, and come with a two year health guarantee. So sit back, relax and take a look at what we have for you.; You just may find your next furever family member. Dachshunds sure do leave their paw prints on our hearts forever. They create awesome lifelong memories; greet us at the door when we return home; pick us up when we are down; and offer us endless unconditional love. These dogs mean the world to me. I truly love them all..
One of the main focuses with our breeding program is breeding dilutes free of the genetic disorder CDA (color dilution alopecia). A majority of dilutes, blues & isabellas, are affected by CDA and that genetic defect continues to be bred in by backyard breeders and puppy mills. We are, however, working on our 3rd generation of dilutes WITHOUT any signs of CDA. We have spent years trying to produce lines free of CDA, and we are making serious progress. We do offer full breeding rights to approved breeders; we need more breeders out there striving to produces the BEST quality and continue to strive for dilutes without CDA.
