LiveWire Dachshunds
Welcome to the home of Livewire dachshunds
                  Our introduction to Standard Wire Hair
                    Dachshunds was our dog “Scupper” whom we purchased from Diane Graham of Diagram Dachshunds in 2005. We bought him to be our “boat dog” and he was perfect for that role. He lived with us on our 42 foot sailing catamaran for 2 years and he was a wonderful diplomat for the breed, making many friends along the way. Our cruising came to an end when we reached Nova Scotia in Canada. We bought a house built in 1785 right on the harbour in Shelburne, Nova Scotia. Living back on land meant that we could have more dogs, so we drove all the way to Texas to pick up our next family member from successful breeder Shirley Ray of Raydachs Kennels in Corpus Christi.
I had raised and shown English Springer Spaniels back in the 80’s and 90’s, so having a show prospect renewed my interest in competing in the ring. “Nelly”, now A/C CH Raydachs Whoa Nelly!, was a fun show dog and completed her championships with ease.
