Located in Sunny North West Alabama!
Dachshunds are loyal and affectionate.  They are great with children and other dogs.  They crave human attention and need to feel part of the family. Doxies love to travel and make excellent travelling buddies, yet they are lap dogs elite!
What is PRA?   

I'm glad you asked!   PRA is short for Progressive Retinal Atrophy....a big word that means "gradual blindness".   The industry now has a genetic marker for this disease.  We test each of our breeding males and females.  Some breeders do not take the time to find out the status of their breeding stock, and continue to breed this into our beloved dachshund bloodlines.     

Here at Bright Creek Critters, we know the PRA status on each dog and will gladly share that information with you.  

We feel it is our responsiblilty, since we have the genetic tests available to breed this disease "out" of our puppies and we simply try not breed carriers to affected dogs!   Please note though, that on occasion it may be necessary to breed two affected dogs to achieve a "short term" goal, to achieve the overall long term goal.   This problem, just like any other genetic defect, cannot be corrected in a season.  It takes years to maintain all the factors.   If PRA is a issue you feel strongly about, please take the time to discuss it with us.

We Check All our Breeding Males and Females for PRA!
All our puppies are sold with limited registration AKC paperwork.  Full registration is available depending on structure of dog and pedigree, but by private treaty only. 
Microchipping is available upon request.   
              Note:  Pups are $900.00 each with limited AKC registration.
