Emma Long asked us for assistance:
Emma Long is trying to trace anyone who may have bought a miniature Dachshund from Little Rascals in February 2011.
Emma bought two puppies that day (a boy and a girl) and although they’re now only just over four years old, one has developed Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD). Emma would like to warn other owners, although she’s not sure that all the puppies she saw were actually related, even though they were being passed off as siblings.
Emma saw several miniature dachshunds together (1 red, black and tans, silver dapples) although she obviously doesn’t know if they were all related, as some were much bigger than others.
The puppies were advertised on Little Rascals’s website and released for sale from 12 February 2011 at 9 weeks old.
Emma has said that actually the dogs are too big to be minis and too small to be standards as both weigh 8kg.
IVDD is a painful and debilitating disease that is very expensive to treat and manage. It can affect other small breeds but is most common in dachshunds. Although genetic, it’s made far worse by irresponsible breeding (issuing fake pedigrees).
The chances of IVDD occurring are much slimmer in dachshunds bred responsibly.
