About Sand Dollar Dachshunds

Sand Dollar Dachshunds is a small scale miniature dachshund breeding program. We are based in La Pine, Oregon, USA. Our main goals with breeding are to breed show and sport quality AKC & UKC registered miniature dachshunds that can live long, healthy lives with their families. Fun colors might be included in our goals, but will stay second to quality conformation and proper health testing. 

We are a bred with H.E.A.R.T. breeder, which means we certify that we have completed recommended health testing for our breed, we study AKC-provided or AKC-approved continuing breeder education so that we stay educated on the best breeding practices, we agree to comply with the AKC Care and Conditions Policy, including inspections by the AKC, and promising to share health testing and continuing education documentation with AKC, we accept responsibility for the health and well-being of the puppies we produce and comply with all laws regarding the ownership and maintenance of dogs, and we agree to upholding the AKC’s tradition of breeding purebred dogs that are happy and healthy.


About Me

 Riki Simons

Certified Veterinary Technician, Breeder, Owner

Hello, my name is Riki Simons. I have owned dachshunds since I can remember, and have a passion for the breed. My "OG ween" is in the my wedding photo to the left, a smooth dapple standard dachshund named "Grub". Breeding dachshunds means a lot to me, and I enjoy showing my dachshunds as well.

I am a  Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT), with a history of working in Equine, Small Animal General Practice, and Small Animal Emergency. 

In my free time, I can be found at the barn! I have a young chestnut, Oldenburg filly named Rou. Her registered name is "Arsenic d' Avalon", (Apiro x Morticia/ Mannhattan/ Frohwind). She is GOV registered and I am excited for our future in the jumper ring.
