Puppy Pick Up
Monday thru Saturday From 9:00am-8:00pm Closed Sundays (865)856-6281
Most of the time our puppies are purchased by their new families before they are old enough to go home yet. We understand that this can be a very stressful time for you!! You may have many questions that you think of between the time you placed a deposit on your puppy and before your puppy is old enough to go home. It can be as long as 5 to 6 weeks before your puppy is old enough to go home, or maybe it is only 1 week until your puppy will be ready !
First of all, When we place our puppies on our website as available for sale, we list them with their PICK UP DATE ! ! This is a very important date. This date is when your puppies LITTER is ready to go home. We think it is very important for the whole litter to go home as close as possible to the same day. So that no precious little puppy is left alone for several days until his family can pick him up. Please make sure that you will be able to pick up your puppy on his pick up date before you decide to place a deposit on one of our puppies. These little guys have always been together so far, and being separated from their siblings is a big change for them. This is perfect timing for you, because when they are separated from their siblings they will naturally be looking for a new family to bond strongly with. This is why it is soooo Important for this to be you as their new family (and not us as the breeder~ then they would bond very strongly with us, and be separated from us again later). We love and handle our babies each and every day. But this time is exceptionally delicate and a puppy really needs to bond with his new family as soon as possible. This is the very best NATURAL time for them to do this quickly!
Getting your home ready for a new mini dachshund puppy is pretty simple but is VERY IMPORTANT FOR SAFETY REASONS. Take a good look around in your home where your puppy will be spending time and make sure there are no exposed electrical cords, poisonous plants, or small items your puppy might chew on or choke on. This quick step will save you a lot of stress and expense in the future. Puppies are just like babies ~ curious and playful ~ they might get into unsafe situations if we are not prepare in advance.
Remember you are very excited, but your new puppy is probably pretty nervous and possibly scared for the first few hours. They bond very quickly and LOVE snuggling and attention ! Plan to spend the first day or two relaxing and snuggling with your new puppy, NOT partying and shopping with your puppy. Shopping and a lot of excitement is too stressful for them in the first few days, they will be ready for that AFTER they get used to their new family ! !
It is extremely helpful if you have most of your supplies and things ready and waiting for your new mini dachshund puppy at home, before you come to pick him up. This way you can take your puppy home and relax with him and enjoy spending quality time with him for the first couple of days. We have a wonderful and very helpful NEW MINI DACHSHUND PUPPY SHOPPING LIST. We think that our shopping list covers all of the basic needs for you, along with a few NO,NO Items, (things we don’t recommend) and a few extra spoiled puppy items you may want to also think about. We have been raising puppies for many years, and please believe me when I say we have learned a thing or two about puppies, we did not think about in the beginning.
Just Click on the New Mini Dachshund Puppy Shopping List above and save then print for a copy to take with you while shopping.
BUSY B DOXIES does have 2 special recommendations that we think will HELP YOU MORE THAN YOU YOU THINK !
#1 NuVet Vitamins,
#2 a puppy exercise pen
1. We start all of our puppies on NUVET Vitamins and we know that these special vitamins make a HUGE difference in our puppies health. We encourage each of our new customers to order these vitamins before they pick up their puppy. They cost about $50 for a bottle of 90 wafers. Since dachshunds are very small and have general very good health, THEY ONLY NEED 1/4 of a wafer daily. That means that one bottle will last for 360 days (One full year). Believe Me! You will not regret this small investment in your puppies health in the future ! These special vitamins are only available from the Nu Vet Website, at http://www.nuvet.com/66222 or by phone 1-
2. A Puppy Exercise pen is VERY HELPFUL FOR MANY REASONS! It can be used indoors and outdoors also. They provide your puppy a SAFE and PORTABLE space, adjustable to almost any room or outdoor area. They feature a step-through door which gives you easy access and keeps your pet secure. It requires no tools for set-up. Folds flat for convenient storage or travel. It has eight panels and provides 16 sq ft of enclosed area. Providing plenty of space inside for a puppy bed or small crate, food & water dishes, and a potty pad for comfort, freedom and security. It is a very helpful tool while potty training your puppy and usable through out their entire lifetime. (The photo is linked to the best place we have found to purchase them. We recommend the 30″high size for dachshunds. Total cost with shipping and tax around $70)
Coming Soon ~ a short video explaining how to set up a puppy exercise pen, specially designed for first step potty training while you are busy, or must be away from your new puppy for an extended time.
The pick up date is listed with each one of our puppies on line with their photo and other information.

Please Bring CASH with you, for the BALANCE DUE on your puppy, when you come to pick up your puppy.
We do not accept any Checks, or Money Orders for the final payment balance due on your puppy when you come to pick them up.
We schedule all of the puppies in a litter to go home on the same weekend, this makes things much easier on the puppies and us. Make sure you can pick up your puppy on the scheduled weekend when your puppy is ready to go home. If their is an emergency situation and you can not pick up your puppy on the scheduled weekend please contact us, so we can work together to make other arrangements as soon as possible.
When a puppy transitions to their new home it can be stressful to the puppy making the change from here where the puppy is used to things the way we do them. Your puppy is used to being with his litter mates up to this point in their life. When you take them home for the first night or two your puppy is not used to spending nights alone. Your puppy may whine or cry some, this is normal. It is very helpful to have a few things from here that your puppy is familiar with to help them adjust to things in the first few days. We will give you several things to help you through these first few days.
