    I live in Polson and have a dachshund. I was wondering how much your puppies cost and what puppies you have now or expect this year.

    Thank you!


    1. teckelwood Says:

      I have two 6 week old miniature males.

    2. teckelwood Says:

      Call me at 406-644-3446 or email if you would like to see them.

  2. I am looking for a Standard LH. Do you have any Litters planned ? Depepnding on age may look at a adult. I am looking for a Companion Dog. On Average what weight range are your Standards ?


    1. teckelwood Says:

      I hope to have a standard litter this winter or next spring.

      1. teckelwood Says:

        Our standards usually are around 25#.

    1. teckelwood Says:

      Yes. If you’ll send an email to me, I’ll help you find a good breeder.

  4. John Says:

    You mentioned maybe a litter of standards this winter, What size in weight do your standards range in ? Also what colors are the parents ?

    1. teckelwood Says:

      Our standards are approximately 25#.

  5. Lori Says:

    We own Teckelwood’s Easter Delte SL (aka Bounder). He will be 14 in March and is in exceptionally good health. He has been our companion for almost 13 years and we love him dearly! It’s fun to look through your site and pedigrees and see Bounder’s parents listed (Teckelwood Rommel Langhaar ML and Stargate Special Copy). Thank you, Amanda, for all you do for the breed!

  7. Debra Henn Says:

    We bought a minature dachshund from Amanda in 1996….she was a short hair black and tan….we named her Darla….she lived for 14 1/2 years without any illness or back problems…..she was the light of our life….Darla just past away in May. We miss her so much there are no words to explain our pain….she lived and breathed with us…..she was our best friend and one of my kids….we were hooked at the hip…..I still talk and sing to her because I know she is listening….Darla was perfect from het markings, to her temperament because she came from good stock….quality dogs!!!…..I will drive to wherever Amanda Hodges is to buy another dachshund from her!!!

  11. Valerie Riddle (Langhaar) Says:

    Hi guys, long time. Very nice website. I never tire of seeing Squirt still showing up in pedigrees. Her son, Mulder (Langhaar X-Philes ML) is still with me. He is the last of my show line and doing well at 14. Tried getting another show dog, but she’s not related, and she hates to show, so I never really made her. Oh well. That, and I can’t get up and down, or around a ring like I used to. My only hope these days would be to co-own, and let the co-owner do all the showing. Don’t know anyone around here anymore though. Pepper has shown for me occasionally, but she’s usually too busy working most of the time. Well, glad to see you’re still doing well. Miss you guys.

  12. Rick Blaskovich Says:

    Our dashchaund of 12 years died last monday as he was coming out of surgery. My wife put it best “I feel like the sunshine has gone from my day”. Do you have any puppies, if not can you recommend a breeder in eastern Mt. We live in Laurel.

    1. teckelwood Says:

      I have a black and tan smooth male and a red brindle smooth male available. We are near Missoula.

  13. Kate Morrisett Says:

    I was looking for a short haired puppy. We just lost our dachshund back in May. We are looking to replace our Pete dog. Are you going to have any puppies available. Color doesnt matter but want a short haired.

  14. Mandy and Barbara, I just want to tell you how we just LOVE our “baby girl” little Schelle! She has gone from quite the shy girl to a total little diva. She has grown an lovely coat (with a plume-y tail!) and has topped out between 8.5-9 lbs. Quite the squiggler, she is keeping Reggy young, yapping and chasing squirrels and barking at invisible behind-the-fence dogs. We love her, she is priceless!

  15. Tyne Whitlow Says:

    My parents recently lost their oldest this month. I was 16 when we got him and I am now almost 32. So sad. They would like a new pup, cream with black dapple. Within the next four months would be nice. female, smooth/short hair. Please email me personally, because it would be their Christmas present. Thank you, kindly! Yellowstone/Sweetgrass area is our location.

  16. Rachel Occhionero Says:

    Wondering what your prices are for a puppy and if you will have any around Christmas time! Looking for a red or black and tan smooth female. Thank you

  17. Shari Berglund Says:

    I heard you had a new litter born… Are the puppies already sold? How many and what color and kind of coat and how much are you selling them for? I have two precious doxies now.. Both sable smooth coats! Mama and son! I bred a few litters and then just decided to keep mama for my sweet baby girl 🙂 I am so in love with them… And the breed as a whole 🙂

  18. Pat May Says:

    My name is Pat May and Becky from 2 Dogs Long Dachshunds said that I should check with you about a new puppy as a pet not as a show dog. I just lost both my “babies” a week apart…one from a heart problem and the other from grief (this is what I really believe). Maggie was 16 1/2 yrs and Augie had turned 17 in April. I miss then terribly. I had been looking at a local pet store but Becky said that she would recommend that I work with a reputable breeder rather than a pet store so that I could be confident in the breeding. She thought that you might have a litter coming soon.
    I appreciate your help. Can you tell me if you will have or do you have any pet puppies for sale and what the price might be? Would really be interested in a mini smooth. I live in Great Falls.

    Thank you

  19. Pat May Says:

    Do you have a litter ready? Looking for a smooth mini male. Just lost my 2 babies in the past month. Becky at 2 dogs long dachshunds suggested that I contact you . Please reply with cost to gfphtoto48@Gmail.Com. I live in Great Falls

I have a 2 year old female Dachshund that is in heat right now..2-13-15, and I’ve been looking for a male dachshund to breed her with. It doesn’t have to be a registered dog, we just want to get a litter of pups so we can keep one.

    I have an ee cream LH female that will be ready to breed in about a year. She carries for piebald and I’m looking for a stud to breed her to when the time comes. I have my own black and tan dapple male, but I’m looking to expand my bloodlines with this new female. I was curious if you would be interested in studding out one of your males.
