About Us

How We Became Dream-A-Dream

Dream-A-Dream Dachshunds is located in Pflugerville, Texas. A small family-owned kennel consisting of several well-loved & spoiled rotten dachshunds. We started out with Darcy, our 1st Dachshund, and upon her 1st delivery, we knew they were here to stay. Sandy, Mandy, and Randy became permanent additions to our family. Like the saying goes “Dachshunds are like potato chips, you can’t have just one.” Before we knew it, we became Dream A Dream Dachshunds.

A Few Words About Our Owner/Manager

My life is an AWESOME adventure following the Lord through the hills and valleys on the path he has set before me. He has never let me down – as I must remind myself daily “Life is not measured by the numbers of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” For the Lord’s Almighty power will take our breath away, and make us stand in AWE as we see his works in our lives and others.

Over 30 years ago, I went into the field of Management and Animal Welfare – having managed a couple of retail stores, Vice President of Lost Pet Hotline, and Fund Raiser Coordinator of the Texarkana Humane Society. Today, I am retired from the workforce and now manage Dream A Dream Dachshunds

Experience: Extensive knowledge and field experience in the areas of animal adoptions, foster placements, and cruelty investigations. Organized several rescue parties to capture injured or uncontrollable animals and followed up each rescue with appropriate medical needs. Familiar with the goals of animal health to emphasize health promotion, education, and prevention of disease. Being a Vet tech at Pflugerville Animal hospital for 3 years, I had the opportunity to enhance my veterinary skills including administering yearly vaccinations, assisting with spaying of dogs, I.v’s, microchipping along with many other hands-on activities.

I have enjoyed the process of learning about our clever, lively, and courageous friends. Over the years I have had the opportunity to visit with several amazing breeders and awesome kennels and have gained insight into the many stories about our beloved dachshunds. We have built a foundation of knowledge we hope you will see as respect, dedication, and appreciation for the dachshund breed.

A great big Thank You to all that have openly shared their wealth of knowledge!
