Welcome to Malapelli's Minions Miniature Dachshunds 
Home Page






We have changed our name!

Malapelli's Minions Miniature Dachshunds! 

The only thing changing is our name! 

Same great pups, same lifetime connections!

We are not a pet store! 

Please do not show up without an appointment!!

I have posted our sales agreement here on the site so that there are no surprises when you come to pick out/up your puppy. You can print it out and sign where needed before coming if you would like.

All of our adults are AKC registered. Our litters are carefully planned with the primary goal of producing quality Miniature Dachshund puppies, with health and temperament being our #1 priority. Our breeding dogs are honest-to-goodness beloved members of our family. We have found that puppies learn more about manners and proper behavior from older dogs than from humans, and a lot quicker. They also learn potty training (using potty pads) and how to behave with people and children and cats.

All puppies are handled and spoiled daily until they go to their forever homes.

Our breeding dogs are house dogs. They are only outside to play and potty.

Our puppies are born and raised inside our living room.

We do not have an outside kennel.

We only have a few litters a year.

Our puppies are vet checked, vaccinated and de-wormed before they go to their new homes. 

We offer a lifetime of support and welcome your questions! 

We also help with training tips when needed.

We do not provide AKC Registration papers unless the pup is going to be used for breeding. 99% of our pups are placed in loving companion homes, never to be bred.

You can expect to receive: Shots, de-worming & health records, Blanket or Puppy Pouch (Check our Dachshund Crafts Page to view) and toy with siblings scent, & a written Health Guarantee/Sales Contract which protects the Buyer, the Breeder, and most importantly the Puppy.


We do accept Credit / Debit Card Payments through PayPal for RESERVATIONS ONLY.

Please add 3.5 % onto the total if paying with PayPal.

If you need an invoice, please make sure to request one.

There will also be a Kentucky Sales Tax of 6% added to all sales.

We gladly accept payments on the pup you pick. The pup must be paid for, in full, before you take the puppy home.

When picking up your pup to take home,

Cash is the ONLY payment we take.

Dachshunds are very loving affectionate dogs.

They can never be close enough.

They are lap dogs and constantly with us where ever we go.

They are our little shadows.

They love to sleep under the covers and are always on our laps.

They are such Loving Companions!!!








In loving memory of our sweet girl
