With this list to work from, if you're looking for a puppy with a particular gender, coat, color and pattern, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call and ask to place a deposit on one from a certain litter to hold it, even before it's born. If that particular type of pup does not appear in that litter, your deposit can be transferred to a different pup, or held for a future pup in a different litter. We do not refund deposits!
Dachshunds come in more combinations of size, coat, color, and pattern than any other breed of dog. Their sizes are: miniature (up to 11 lbs. at 1 year old or older), and standard (over 11 lbs - the breed standard says 16-32 lbs, leaving the unofficial "tweenie" range between 11 and 16 as "small standard"). For the show ring, there are only two official sizes: mini - 11 lbs and under, and standard - 16 lbs and up. (We believe, there is no "bad" size for a dachshund - they're the greatest dogs in the world!) Coats are: smooth - SM, longhair - LH, and wirehair - WH. Colors include: red, cream, wheaten; solid black, black & tan, solid blue, blue & tan; solid chocolate, chocolate & tan, isabella (fawn) & tan, solid isabella; wild boar. The 'tan' points may also appear as 'cream' on some dogs. The "dilute" colors are the creams & wheaten, blue, and isabella (fawn). Patterns are: brindle, dapple, double-dapple, piebald and wildboar/sable, or in combinations such as brindle/ dapple, brindle/piebald, brindle/sable, brindle/dapple/piebald, dapple/piebald, sable/piebald, etc. (AKC only recognizes the combination of brindle/piebald, and now they are "excusing" piebalds from their shows!) Brindle is a tiger-striping of black on red, or base-color on the tan points in any of the other colors (black, chocolate, blue, isabella, etc.) - the tan almost completely disappears on these when the dog is brindle. Dapple can appear as lighter or darker spots on the base color of any colored dog. It is also referred to as "merle" in other breeds, and can be swirls, patches, distinct dots, or large areas of "different" coloring as in a reverse-dapple. No two dappled dogs are identical - like snowflakes - but the ONLY time you will normally see a blue-eyed dachshund is one that is dappled, because the dapple gene affected one eye or both, and it may show as either partially or entirely blue. It does not harm the eye any more than a blue-eyed human is harmed by their eyes' color. Double-dapple occurs when both parents are dappled, and the puppy receives two pattern genes for dapple. It can cause partially or completely deaf and/or blind dogs, but they may also be just fine. We had a double-dapple sire (Casper) who was perfect and produced perfect puppies! Piebald is any base-color plus white, producing the appearance of a pinto or paint horse, and the white can cover nearly all of the dog, half & half, or just a small area. A completely white adult dachshund is EXTREMELY RARE; most white babies turn some shade of cream as they grow up. Sable is only found in red dogs, because it involves having both red and black on each hair-shaft. It won't show on a black dog, and black is NEVER found on chocolate, isabella, or blue. Wild boar is completely different from the other colors - it involves having three or more colors randomly placed on each hair-shaft, in distinct zones, producing an all-over grizzled coloration. Read the Breed Standard for more information.
We at Flickennel reserve the right to withhold the sale of any puppy without explanation. If we feel for whatever reason that a puppy is not a good candidate for adoption, we will not sell that puppy.
Okay - here are the expected upcoming litters, if they've all "taken" as they should - they don't always take! (For those that have been born and are still listed here, their litter pages will be posted in the near future. These listings will be removed as their pages are built. Not all "expected" characteristics will appear in each litter - these are just the expected options! Sometimes we get more - or less - than we bargained for!) If a litter posting disappears without mention of any pups, the mother has usually been found to have been "not actually pregnant." DUE DATES ARE APPROXIMATIONS! We breed over a span of several days, depending on whether the female goes out of heat or not after being bred, and that gives a lot of variation to when she's actually going to give birth. Don't try to hold us to a certain due-date - it happens when it happens!
PHOTOS: The scheme is Left, mom; center, pups (if we get time to take a litter photo when they're born!); right, dad. In the litter description, it's always listed "Mom's name & Dad's name," so the pictures show them in that order, too.
DUE TO THE NATURE OF ITS CONTENT - UPCOMING LITTERS OF PUPPIES - THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTANT RECONSTRUCTION!! IF YOU DON'T SEE PHOTOS WHERE THEY SHOULD BE - JUST WAIT - THEY'RE COMING!

DEPOSIT/PRE-PAYMENT OPTION If a litter page has not been activated yet, you may still put a deposit on a pup to reserve it for yourself, or to enable first-choice from an as-yet unborn litter. Deposits are easy to do. A deposit consists of $350, plus the PayPal convenience fee of $14. For a typical female that would be $364, for a male it would be $312. Go to PayPal, even if you do not have a PayPal account, select Send Money, and send the appropriate amount to email@example.com, along with a note to say what the pre-payment is for - either a certain pup from a certain litter, or first-choice from a particular litter, or a particular color, coat, pattern or gender (e.g. "a future blue & tan reverse-dapple smooth male"). The process is easy and should take less than five minutes to complete. PayPal will email to inform us of your payment, but please also call Janet (if during the day) to let her know, in case we aren't at our computers when you do this. We check email first thing in the morning and at various times during the day and evening, but we like to know so we don't accidentally sell the same puppy twice!
WE WORK ON BUILDING THE LITTER PAGES AFTER THE PUPS ARE BORN AND AS WE HAVE TIME TO GET PICTURES TAKEN - A DAY-LONG AND LABOR-INTENSIVE PROCESS, SETTING UP FOR THE PHOTO SHOOT, CORRALLING WIGGLY LITTLE TARGETS, MAKING SURE THE PICTURES ARE CLEAR ENOUGH TO USE, PROPERLY EDITED, SENT TO BECKY IN NEW YORK, THEN UPLOADED TO THE WEBSITE, THEIR PAGES BUILT AND ACTIVATED. SO, YOUR PATIENCE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED, AND NO, WE DO NOT TAKE PICTURES WEEKLY. IT'S MORE LIKE EVERY 3-4 WEEKS, AS THEY JUST DON'T CHANGE THAT MUCH IN 1 OR 2 WEEKS' TIME. Prices below are in U.S. dollars, + $50 for AKC registration if you want full registration on your puppy.
FLICKENNEL - Colorado Dachshunds with ALTITUDE!!!
That's all for now! We will be posting more REAL soon!!! Your patience is greatly appreciated!
Your wife called while you were on the way. She's been on our site and said to get one of each.
We frequently mention "the Cash Clan" and you need to know who Cash is - he's our King of the Kennel, the foundation sire of the Cash Clan of exciting and exquisitely beautiful dogs. We keep the very best of the best to constantly improve our breeding stock, and the cream of our crop usually has one or more ties back to Cash. We've bred him and his offspring to various other great bloodlines to pull in terrific colors and patterns, as well as different coat types - the only one we haven't tried yet is wirehair! So here's why we get all starry-eyed when we mention CASH...
Cash is a black & tan reverse-dapple longhair with the most magnificent "show coat" all year round. He's not fat - he's furry! His pups usually have the same classy classic conformation he has, and the dapples usually have blue or partially-blue eyes, as he does.
Because of the blue in his irises, Cash always seems to be looking over your right shoulder, even when looking straight at you.
OUR OFFICIAL PROTOCOL FOR HANDLING OUR PUPPIES
Our daily visiting hours are from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
We handle all of our puppies several times a day in the course of caring for them and their mothers. Puppies stay in the nursery with their mothers until they are six weeks old, then they are weaned, that is, separated from their mother. The puppies' diet changes from her milk and gruel - a transitional supplemental mixture of ground Puppy Chow plus liquid milk replacer introduced at 4 weeks - to dry Puppy Chow and drinking water. At 6 weeks, they are moved out of the nursery to our kitchen for increased socialization and familiarization with home life that is crucial to their development, and they receive their first vaccination and worming, followed by their second at 8-9 weeks. If they are still with us long enough, they receive the mandatory third vaccination and worming 2-3 weeks later.
WE DO NOT ALLOW VISITORS TO ENTER THE NURSERY OR KENNEL AREA, OR TO HANDLE ANY OF THE UNVACCINATED PUPS. This is for the health and safety of our dogs, particularly the baby puppies, and so they don't bring unknown germs back to the nursery with them to contaminate other litters. If you truly love your new puppy and want only the best for it, PLEASE don't ask to visit before it is six weeks old! We have a separate Meet & Greet Room where you will visit your puppy or make your selection from several pups that we will bring to you. Don't worry - we are taking excellent care of the babies, but even the State Inspector doesn't enter our nursery when inspecting the kennel for fear of importing something from outside that could wipe out all the babies. It's not just our rule - that's the State's rule! Your own pet(s) at home may not be sick, but you can unknowingly pick up various deadly disease pathogens from other animals, pet stores, or even on the grass in town and bring them in on your hands, shoes or clothing. We respect your desire to see and handle the puppies, but our responsibility is first and foremost to do everything in our power to nurture and protect them, so you get the healthiest puppy possible.
Jubilee & Joker - BORN 10-21, READY 12-16. Jubilee is a red & white mottled dapple longhair out of Taffy & Rambo, and a grand-daughter of Cash - she has Cash Clan eyes! Joker is a smooth faux-dilute red brindle piebald with a strong piebald and dilute background. BOTH PUPS ARE LONGHAIRS. The unique little girl is like her mom, who also started out with BLUE overtones on top of red, but this baby has a blue nose as well!
Viva & Prince - BORN 10-24, READY 12-19. Viva is a smooth isabella & tan out of Diva and Shotgun, and is a grand-daughter of Spot & Cash. Prince is a blue-eyed longhair blue & tan whitened-dapple out of Princess & Dawg, and is a great-grandson of Cash and of Blue, so he makes whitened-dapples in regular and dilute colors. We should have isabella, blue, dapples with or without white, and smooth or longhair - smooth is dominant, but Viva's sire is longhair so she has to carry it. but we won't be able to tell for sure until the pups are about 5 weeks old.
1F dilute red w/blue overlay longhair, white toes $900+ - Julie B. 2M red longhair w/a few white markings $800+ - Anja S.
1F isabella dapple - reserved for Travis J. 2M blue & tan, slight kinked tail that won't be noticeable when grown $800, NO AKC -
3M blue & tan whitened mottled-dapple- reserved for Chrissy H.
From dachshundcorner.com - a lot of fun! I need to set up one of these for MY doxies! This could take wienerdog racing to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!!!
Checkers & Rambo - BORN 11-11, READY 1-6-15. Checkers is an isabella & tan whitened dapple longhair out of Fawn (isabella & tan Cash grand-daughter) & Dawg (chocolate whitened-dapple), so she's a Cash Clan girl. Rambo is a solid-chocolate longhair out of Smores (chocolate whitened dapple) & Blue (blue & tan), so he carries the dilute gene. WE HAVE THREE GOOOOORGEOUS PUPS - ALL LONGHAIR BOYS! Patchwork is one of the rarest dapple patterns, like one of Janet's patchwork quilts, and ours are fantastically pretty. The 5M pup is a Scratch & Dent, so he will have no AKC papers - his tail has a complete curl at the very tip.
Charity & Rambo's boy, born 10-10, ready to go home 12-5, priced at $1,000, with full AKC for $50 more. He's the sole survivor of his litter, an isabella & tan reverse dapple longhair and will be extra-tiny at maturity! He's being fostered by Petunia so he still has a mother's love, but Charity died 10 hours after her c-section to deliver him and his siblings who also died.
WE ARE REDOING AND UPDATING THE ENTIRE WEBSITE. PLEASE USE THE BUTTONS ON THIS PAGE TO PAY FOR THE PUP YOU CHOOSE! WE PLAN TO HAVE THE "NEW IMPROVED" VERSION UP AND RUNNING SOON! INDIVIDUAL LITTER PAGES ARE BEING BUILT FOR THE UPDATED SITE ONLY. NOTICE: THE ACT OF MAKING A PAYMENT ON ANY OF OUR DOGS CONSTITUTES AGREEMENT WITH ALL THE TERMS OF OUR CONTRACT. If you change your mind after putting a payment on a dog, your payment will be transferred to another available dog of your choice. We do not give any refunds.
Snookie & Cupid - BORN 11-14, READY 1-9-16. Snookie is an adorable red-brindle wirehair, the daughter of Brinda (smooth red brindle piebald) & Stripe (cream brindle wirehair). This is her first litter, so we'll be interested to see what she has - both she and Cupid are likely to carry cream and possibly piebald. Wire is THE dominant coat, but Snookie is only contributing one wire gene to the four coat genes in this mix, so we may get NO wires. However, if she gives that one wire gene to ALL of her babies, we could have all wire pups! Both parents are brindle - Cupid's a smooth red brindle who also has cream piebald ancestry, but his sire is longhair - if HIS long gene kicks in with the wire, we'll have SOFT wires. Oh, the possibilities! THE PUPS ARE ALL RED BRINDLE so far, and we won't know on coats until they're AT LEAST 5 weeks old as wire is sometimes very slow to show up.
Champagne & Shotgun - BORN 11-15, READY 1-10. Champagne is a "blush" or red faux-dilute longhair out of Taffy & Blue. Taffy is a daughter of Cash & Apricot Brandy, so Champagne is a member of the Cash Clan, with Brandy's cream piebald genes lurking beneath the surface. She's not carrying Brandy's smooth coat, since a doxie has to be homozygous for longhair in order to be one. Shotgun is an incredible whitened-dapple isabella & tan longhair son of Spot & Cash. We have nothing but unmitigated WONDERFUL from this match - WONDERFUL dapples and dilute colors, and when they grow up they'll have WONDERFUL Cash Clan coats and conformation!
2M chocolate & tan whitened patchwork dapple LH - Miranda & Andrew B. 4M isabella & tan LH $900+ (pictured below) - Myra C. 5M isabella & tan reverse-dapple LH, Scratch & Dent. His tail has a tight curl at the tip, like a pug's. $800 no AKC
1F red brindle $900+ 2M red brindle $800+ 3M red brindle$800+
Splendor & Rambo - BORN 11-26, READY 1-21. Splendor is a stunningly beautiful and sweet-tempered black & tan whitened mottled-dapple daughter of Tinsel & Cash, while Rambo is the chocolate & tan son of Smores & Blue. We have:
1F blue & tan reverse-dapple LH $1200+
2M black & tan whitened mottled/reverse dapple LH $1100+
Julianne is taking me home to Byers, CO in time for Christmas! I'll fit in her stocking!
Sunset & Rambo - BORN 11-21, READY 1-16. Sunset is a red brindle longhair daughter of Sunsweet (red longhair descended from English creams) and Smoky (English cream brindle longhair, champion bloodlines). Rambo, solid-chocolate longhair out of Smores and Blue, gives to the mix his genes for dilute and whitened-dapple (which skipped him - he's a half-brother to Dawg, a chocolate whitened-dapple). We have two red brindle pups and one red, and reds in any pattern usually change either lighter or darker as they grow up, so these could turn almost creamy light-red like their mother. They have to carry their dad's chocolate, because he has to be homozygous for that (two chocolate genes, since there are two genes for each trait - coat, color, pattern - in each dog, one donated by each parent from whatever THEY have). These pups are all longhair, because both parents are.
Truffle & Big Red - BORN 11-25, READY 1-20. Truffle is a longhair chocolate & cream out of Bon Bon, a lovely chocolate & tan longhair, and Reece, our chocolate-based English cream brindle with faint chocolate stripes blurred by his gorgeous long coat. Big Red is out of Sugar Baby (red LH) and Romeo (champion English cream LH), with a glorious red coat that has a golden glow to it. We HAVE one chocolate & cream longhair BOY, and he's gonna be a WINNER!!! Sorry about Truffles' baby picture, above - I don't have any of her as an adult. It does show her cream points quite well, however! Her boy looks just like her! We have him priced at $1000 plus $50AKC.

Fancy & Anthony S. are taking their dream puppy home!
Taffy & Rambo - BORN 11-29-15, READY 1-24-16. Taffy is a highly unusual light-red reverse-dapple longhair carrying piebald, with off-white where most red dapples have black or darker red splotches. On top of that, she's a daughter of Apricot Brandy & CASH, so it's no wonder she's wonderful! Rambo - the dilute & blue-packing little chocolate genetic dynamo that he is - keeps churning out spectacular babies! PUPPY PICTURES ARE FORTH-COMING! The new baby is:
1M black or blue & tan reverse-dapple LH - it's hard to tell some colors when they're newborn and still wet, or even for a couple of days!
PRICE TO BE DETERMINED YET.... KEEP CHECKING BACK!
