Our "D" litter was born this morning August 1st by Mae von Munterkeit and sired by FC Billy von Moosbach-Zuzelek. It caught us by surprise a bit. Mae had 3 puppies with her last litter so we were expecting a smaller litter but found out she was carrying 7-8 puppies when she had an x-ray taken last week. We assumed less but were very excited for the good news, 8 puppies! Nonetheless, Mae is very strong and healthy. She dpost_id not look that large and carried the puppies without a problem.
ae started panting, nesting and being restless on Tuesday. Her temperature started to drop below 99.5°F that night. At 5:35 a.m. on Wednesday morning she had her first puppy. The puppies arrived rather quickly and with ease. She had all of the puppies in 2 hours. The final puppy was born at 7:35 a.m.. I was a bit concerned most of the day after the 7th puppy arrived because the x-ray told us she may have 8 puppies. I thought she might have a puppy left so we ended up taking her to the vet to get an x-ray to avopost_id any complications. Bespost_ides that all of the puppies were/are healthy. In total Mae had seven puppies, five boys and two girls just like her sister Mariel.
The puppies are not named yet but here is their time of birth and weight are as follows:
Update (12/1/12). We have no puppies availble for sale at this time and we do not plan on breeding/having puppies this coming spring (2013).
This year we bred both of our females, Mae and Mariel von Munterkeit. Mariel was bred to our own male Achilles of Trace-ja. She had seven puppies and they are all sold. Mae was bred to Billy von Moosbach-Zuzelek who is owned by John and Jolanta Jeanneney from Born-to-Track.
The breeding took place on May the 30th and we are expecting the puppies to be born around August 1st. Mae was taken to the vets for an ultrasound this week and she is expecting 7-8 future blood tracking wire-haired dachshund puppies. So far we have three of Mae's puppies sold.

Mae is a very accomplished blood tracking dog, she was Deer Search certified in 2010, she is an AKC Field Champion, and a great all around hunting dog with high endurance and desire to please. For example, last season Mae recovered six deer, we shot 16 rabbits, and a coon as you'll see in the picture below. Here is Mae's pedigree and some other related photos:
Here are some pictures of Mae with deer she has found and some of the many rabbits and a coon we got this year.
