*Scammers use a physical address to appear more legitimate. The address will have no connection to the actual scam as they will be an innocent third  party is not a puppy breeders website and this is not a review of This is a warning.

They claims to sell puppys but the domain was actually created by criminals in order to defraud people wanting to buy a dachshund.
Once you express interest in buying one of the puppys the scammer will send you a template email telling you a lot of details about the puppy as well as information on the best puppy food to use, and how you should take care of your new puppy.

They will even send you “proof” by showing you pictures they have stolen off the internet of dachshund puppys. will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fraudulent Delivery company.
The “delivery company” is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, an air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your puppy as well as multiple other fees.

  1. Thank heavens I looked on pet scam before sending any money, or I would have been scammed by these same people. The email is the same Minis 4 you , we were in the process of getting information and in-between emails I check for scam. They said that they were in New Jersey.
    I didn't loose any money but still felt the lose of getting another puppy, we lost our 10yr pup several months ago.

  2. Mine came from Minis 4 You
    Email: [email protected]

  3. I was scammed by Delightful Dachshund Homes for $590. Paid by Zelle to James Given, Mark Jackson and Paul and Wendy Coleman. Please don’t get scams by them.

  4. My Granddaughter is getting scammed by them also. She paid $600 for dog and $200 for shipping. Now they want $1,250 for refundable insurance to send her. Paid them thru Zelle to Nelson Johnson. My this person pay for his evil actions

  5. I just received an email from the same person Camryn mentioned – [email protected] – with the exact same message listed by Shelly. I was alerted to possible scams by the website of a reputable breeder in Indiana and am so thankful that I was! There were two other sites that were at the top of the list on every search I was making online, and they appear to be of the same ilk. One was Dream Dachshunds and the other was Galaxy Mini Dachshunds. Both offer puppies for about $550-$590 and both offer free shipping, but only if you buy now! In addition, there were multiple grammatical errors and weirdnesses in their listings., such as Dream Dachshunds talking about shipping kittens in one sentence, then switching to talking about the puppy in the same paragraph. They also said their normal price for a mini dachshund was $490 on one page, but then they said their price of $550-$590 on a different page was actually their 50% discounted price.

    This was the message from Delightful Dachshunds/Dream Miniature Dachshunds:

  6. I am trying to buy a puppy right now and I believe I am trying to get scammed. I offered to fly up and pick the puppy out and they still wanted a deposit before I would be able to visit. I believe that they are thieves. I have copied the emails below. Someone put a stop to these people.

    Hello ,
    Thank you for visiting our site and for your inquiry regarding our lovely mini dachshund puppies. We are familiar with this breed and have raised them over the years and we have made out time to properly educate ourselves on the breed to be of help to you as a prospective buyer. All our lovely cuddles are raised here in our home around kids and people.Very good for people who are allergic to dogs with hairs.They always sit with us on the couch and they enjoy meeting our guests quite often.Our dachshund Puppies will come dewormed, with a 1 year health guarantee.
    We breed for the sake of experience and for the love of the breed so our fees are affordable enough for any pet loving family.They are NOW $550 for the females and $500 for the males.
    We offer free shipping to most States which you pick up at your closest airport. We also offer home delivery to those who are far from a major airport. If you interested to buy any of these puppies, then you have to kindly
    answer some questions for me.
    1) which of these puppies do you want to take home? I can’t decide, I would like to have a female, Rosie is so pretty. But they all are. We would like to have any.
    2) Have you ever had a puppy in your entire life ? Many, I’ve hade a Black and Tan, her name was Brat she lived to be 16 years old. Also able dapple Otis he just passed on 12/18/19, heart is breaking.
    3) Are you a breeder ? No
    4) Do you have any veterinarian around your location ? Yes Dr. Bystrom Palma Sola animal clinic. 20 years with them.
    5) If the puppies destroy something worth $100 what will be your reaction ? Really, it’s materialistic, things can be replaced.

    6) If the puppies are seriously sick and the doctor’s record says they
    will not get well again will you carry out euthanasia ? My Brat died in my areas, my Otis had bone, liver, spleen cancer and a mass around his heart, I loved him for as long as I could when he would not eat, drink or even go to the bathroom I had to make the decision to let him go in peace, Lap of Love came to my home so that he could be in his favorite spot with all of us around him. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
    7) Where are you located? I live in Bradenton Florida.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks for answering to the questions ,Rosie is very lovely and great with children and other pets. She will be coming with all health
    papers and 1 year health guarantee and current on all vaccines she is well socialized and good with other dogs and she doesn’t shed and she is potty trained.We are located in New Jersey from where she will be coming from .We also offer 3 FREE SHIPPING coupons to our clients this week and you could just earn one now if you complete your purchase soon .How soon do you want the puppy shipped over?
    Stay Blessed

    I actually would like to fly up there and see the whole litter and see which puppy would like us most. When would a good time to come? Are they old enough now? I can come anytime, I don’t have to be back to work for a week. I could book my flight today if you will let me know the best place to fly into.

    You will need to make a $300 deposit and we will pick you up from the airport and if you decided not to purchase we will refund your money.

    I would not need you to pick me up, I would make my own arrangements, I would like to visit your home and see all the puppies before I decide. Why do I need to make a deposit for a visit? I will bring cash with me.

    We will take deposit before visit.

    Okay so both my other dog breeders allowed me to visit before buying why would you be different?

    Last of email. They never answered me back. I really think they are fake.

    Here is the phone number and email that this came from.
