Mature Dachshunds

Trusted Breeder
5 Star License
Fully Accredited
International Show Kennel

Coots at Eversden is foremost a professional show kennel. What is that? We breed only the best show dogs and we are always looking to achieve this aim by breeding dogs that we know have the correct temperament, conformity and pure bloodline to achieve the best breed of dachshund possible.

When a decision is made to take a pick of a litter what we know is that at 12 weeks old this is not possible to do.The dogs development is at the beginning of its journey. We have in the past kept a dog and have seen as its litter mates develop in their new homes, we have made the wrong choice. It’s not science , it’s life!

So two years ago we decided that any litter we were looking for a possible show dog, all the litter would be kept so we could see first hand the development ourselves. Each dog is trained from an early age to socilaise and to bring out the best possible temperament as it takes a special type of dog to be able to show at an International level. They need to be able to perform for their handler, love what they do, they are not anxious and often have to enjoy hours of travel too. It’s not for all dachshunds, as it wouldn’t be for all humans.

Any potential new owner of one of our infant puppies, or young adults, has the possibility to own a dog that is indeed very special. Although in the end this dog has not been chosen for show life, it is always a very difficult decision to make. You have the opportunity to own a dachshund that has been trained to be very special. For many, young puppies dont always suit a family situation and having an older dog who is ready to integrate immediately into family life, that is confident and independent is a great option. Also let’s look at some of the other benefits, at full maturity you can see your adult dog and know it is perfect in appearance. Typically any health issues will also present before a dog is 6 months old.

We have a number of mature dachshunds available to loving families and homes. These dogs are all precious to us and we consider it our duty to find them perfectly matched homes and sofas. Some of our dachshunds adore children, so finding a young family is a must for them. Others love the company of other dogs, so having a family with other dogs is a great match. If you are looking for a mature dachshund, then we will work with you to find the most suitable girl or boy to join your family. Remember the life expectancy of a dachshund is 12 + years. These girls and boys are still so very young and ready to start their lives with you.

All dogs have an International Pedigree, are fully vaccinated and have completed a socialisation programme.

Meet Rufus our Champion

Born 12/11/21

Rufus has just made us super proud at The European Dog Show, Denmark. Placed Reserve First in his class at his first International Event. He is without question a handsome , exceptional boy. So why are we looking for a new home for him? Whilst he is perfect, he is a little shy and so the demands of the showing world are not for him. He is such a well mannered and polite boy. He is attentive and loyal, always waiting for instructions. Happy with other dogs, Rufus loves humans. He will make someone the most wonderful companion. He walks to heal without a lead and will spend hours sitting on your lap enjoying endless affection. He is a true heartbreaker and will be unbelievably missed, but he deserves a family life and our goal is to find him the most perfect family.

Meet Lenny

Born 16/08/22

Lenny is the son of our World Champion Danny and is a miniature long – haired dachshund.  You only have to look at him and watch how he moves to know he’s a very special boy. His coat is to die for. Whilst he was destined for the limelight and to be a Coots at Eversden show dog, he has a very timid disposition and so prefers the comfort of a sofa, a lap to snuggle on and a quieter life. It’s for this reason we are looking for the perfect home for him.
Lenny would do well in a household with no children, he is fine with children but finds them stressful. He is great with other dogs but would be happy as the only dog. He doesn’t want a life where he is expected to go on family holidays or visits to the local pubs and restaurants. He would dearly love a nice garden to potter in, nice walks and a reliable loving human to cuddle. Lenny has very simple needs. He is a beautiful boy.
