Black Beaver Creek Kennel and the Bisbee Family have been breeding American Kennel Club registered miniature and tweenie dachshunds since 2002 and AKC Komondor livestock guardian dogs since 2015. Located in rural Orr, Minnesota, BBCK is licensed and inspected by the Minnesota Board of Animal Health (MN Commercial Dog Breeder License #MN106166.) As a family, we have focused on raising family-friendly, well-socialized, long and wire-haired dachshunds that meet dachshund breed standards. Our belief is that, as responsible breeders, we have a lifelong commitment to the health and happiness of every puppy we breed.
On our farm, at our Kennel we have miniature adult dachshunds and puppies available. You will find our puppies listed under “Available Puppies>Available Dachshund Puppies.” If you are looking for an adult miniature dachshund you will find them under “Available Adult Dogs.” Some of our adults dogs are former dams and sires, you can find out more about them on this page. If you aren’t able to afford the cost to purchase one of our dogs but absolutely adore and LOVE dachshunds, we do have our Guardianship option.
Our dachshunds are raised and brought up with their parents and their siblings from current and sometimes previous litters. And with dogs in general, dogs need companionship, they aren’t like cats who are independent and want their space. Please note that if you have no other dogs and purchase one of ours, like all other changes, the dog will have an adjustment period. If you notice that period of time seems to take longer than expected, maybe consider purchasing another dachshund so your dog has that constant companionship and playmate.
If you are interested in working with us to find your companion, keep reading. Below you can read about how to proceed, review our contracts, fill out a questionnaire so we can insure we help match you with the best dog. If you aren’t local, hardly anyone is local to where we are, we will do a Zoom or FaceTime with you and the dog of choice before proceeding. If you have absolutely any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out! Our contact info is at the bottom of each page or you can click the “contact us” page.
Throughout my career as a middle and high school teacher, BSA district executive, small business owner, and soldier, canine companionship has been the key to my success and mental health. As a disabled combat veteran, the emotional support that my best buddy, Dirt (a long-haired dachshund,) has provided has kept me going. I focus on raising doxies that can help fill that missing piece in others' life puzzles; as Dirt has for me.
Paige is a mom to seven children. She can't remember why they started breeding dachshunds. When her children were growing up they had a Dalmatian. When that dog passed away they decided they did want to breed dogs. As for how; they chose dachshunds, Paige can't remember.
