I am writing to give an update on our long-hair mini-dachshund Velma (formerly Heidi of the December 1, 2015 litter from Hershey). Our friends Laura and Brian had purchased a dachshund from the Martins back in 2013 and had nothing but good things to say about their experience. I was of course a bit worried about purchasing a puppy I had never met (the drive was almost 4 hours!) but fell in love with her instantly and things have only gotten better! Velma now lives in Philadelphia with her human parents and her big (BIG) brother, Ken the German Shepherd. It is plainly obvious how much the Martins care for their dogs and puppies. She was so well-adjusted and social, city life was an easy transition for her! She’s happy and healthy, weighing it at 7 pounds these days!
She is so intelligent! She is already house broken (unless it’s raining, of course, just ask any dachshund parent) and has graduated from her first puppy class before being 5 months old! She loves to learn new tricks in exchange for cheese and is the best lap dog ever. We just love her and are so thankful she came into our lives!
Thanks again to the Martin family for raising such friendly, happy, healthy puppies and for bringing Velma into our lives!
