Prelude Miniature Wire Haired Dachshunds- History and Introduction

Thom and I started into Miniature Wire Haired Dachshunds 1994 with "Willy" a handsome red dog from Emma Jean Stephenson's well known "EJ" kennel in Pittsburgh Pa. He was to become the first of many American and Canadian Champions here at Prelude.

We also acquired a little red girl named Peanut who turned out to be a great friend and is behind almost everyone of our puppies. Her calm sweet demeanour endeared me to the breed as up to this point I was not used to a "hound" temperament.

Peanut was also an incredible producer and loved her puppies. Her first litter of 6 was followed by her next of 7 and her final litter of 8!


Retired Dogs looking for loving homes.

We occasionally have an older dog that is in search of a loving forever home. Some are retired show dogs or breeding stock who we feel who excel in a home environment. Generally there is a charge that covers the cost of spaying/neutering, vaccinations, teeth cleaning or any maintenance that is necessary at the time. (approx. $300 - $600) They make exceptional companions as they have had a full life with lots of exposure and relish the fact that they are now the center of attention.
