  • What qualities should I look for in a miniature dachshund puppy and how much do they cost? My wife wants to get a short-haired, black and tan miniature dachshund puppy. I have little experience with dogs, especially buying them. I'm not sure (a) what qualities to look for when selecting a puppy and (b) the average price range for a paperless miniature dachshund. Is there anything in particular to look for in the way of temperment, physical characteristics, etc? My wife found a breeder online that has some puppies (w/o papers) for $700 each. This seems like an astronomical price (I'm a cat person who is used to being able to adopting strays for no cost) but honestly I have no idea if it's a reasonable price. Any help?

Any tips on helping her adjust from a grassy subdivision to a dirt farm with 5 dogs?
