Sandy & Rick McFadden

I have been involved with the purebred dogs all my life my parents started with German Shepherd’s, showing and breeding! Later on I remember my father bringing home our first dachshund named “Mr. Lizard Tongue” Lizard was a character and a half, he stole our hearts! That was it! I’ve had dachshunds ever since. When Rick an I got married over 40 yrs. ago, Rick gotten bitten by the dachshund bug too! Together, we’ve been breeding and showing. We started with black & tan mini smooths from there we moved up to mini and standard longhairs. Over the years we expanded our showing from conformation and obedience to Agility, trick, fieldwork, and yes even lure coursing, with our dachshunds! We’ve always have been in good standing with AKC and have been in numerous dog clubs over the years. I’m proud to be Associated with the California Federation of dog clubs Inc., as their treasurer.
