Welcome to Crème of the Crop Dachshunds!
We specialize in breeding luxurious platinum blonde ee (Clear) Longhair English Cream Miniature Dachshunds from AKC breeding stock. We also offer other popular cream colors: Shaded Creams, Cream Piebalds, Cream Dapple Piebalds, and Cream Dapples. We are a small home-based breeder that only has a few litters per year. We’re located in the little quaint town of Franklin, Texas which is located in Central Texas. I have owned dachshunds all of my life, but saw my first English Cream after retiring from teaching and fell hopelessly in love with them. Their breathtaking beauty is mesmerizing; I still can’t take my eyes away as I see them playing in the backyard with their fully flagged tails. They stand out from all my other dachshunds like royalty. They are our pride and joy! All of my dachshunds were chosen as pets first and live in our homes. Our three adult children are grown, and now we dote on our precious dachshunds lavishing them with the love and attention they deserve. They aren’t just pets; they have our hearts! Our mission is to lovingly breed and raise our idea of the perfect Dream Crème (beauty, great temperament, and excellent health) to be loving pets from our hearts and home to yours. Our stellar English Cream Miniature Dachshunds are the highest quality with exceptional pedigrees with British and Canadian Champion Lineages going back 5 generations. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and love talking about our “Dream Crème” English Cream Miniature Dachshunds and our breeding program!
FROM OUR Crème of the Crop Dachshunds Family
Absolutely amazing experience. We purchased two puppies from Creme of the Crop Dachshunds and couldn’t be happier. Leslie was so helpful, informative and patient with all of our questions. She is very honest and ethical and cares deeply for her pets! Leslie and her husband, Sam, were so accommodating and such a joy to meet when we picked up our puppies. We are very grateful and happy to have met Leslie and Sam.

I can’t say enough about Creme of the Crop and Leslie the owner. I bought a beautiful cream dachshund puppy from her and he is absolutely gorgeous and the sweetest little thing. Leslie went out of her way to find me joy. After meeting her it was obvious that she is not just a breeder who cares for her dogs but a great person who makes every effort to ensure your experience is wonderful. Thank you Leslie for giving us such a joy with our little Odie.

We had a wonderful experience adopting our mini dachshund, Lady, from Leslie and Creme of the Crop Dachshunds. We were on the hunt for an English Cream puppy for a while and we’re so grateful that our paths crossed. It’s very obvious that Leslie cares immensely for her dogs and gives them the best care from day one. We appreciated how easy it was to communicate with Leslie, especially since we were flying into Texas from out of state to pick up our puppy. She answered every single question we had and sent us lots of pictures and videos to keep us updated until we could make arrangements to come pick her up. We are absolutely smitten with our little girl and would recommend adopting from Creme of the Crop Dachshunds to anyone! Thank you Leslie!

Leslie and Sam Urso are a precious couple that love their doxies unconditionally. They care for their dogs like children putting their health at the forefront. We bought two dachshunds from them at their beautiful country home. Leslie is a retired teacher like me, and their dogs are loving, calm, and healthy. Our Cookie and Ruby are enjoying their lives on our farm and love their sheep and cow friends. Carl and I would recommend their dogs to everyone, and we are 100% happy! In fact, our two girls are nearly perfect! 😊

Leslie is the kindest, most caring breeder. Her dachshunds are her babies. Leslie was communicative throughout the entire adoption process, and frequently updated me on my puppy's physical and behavioral development. She is truly invested in the puppies' well-being, and as a result, I was able to welcome a happy and healthy little girl into my family. I could not recommend Creme of the Crop Dachshunds more.
All the Best,

We are absolutely in love with our precious fur baby! We took a great deal of time searching for the perfect person who would raise our future puppy until he was big enough for us to bring him to his furever home. We chose Leslie because of her high standards, ethical approach and her true passion for animals. Leslie's strong moral principles are evident in her cultivation of Crème of the Crop Dachshunds. She cares deeply about the health of the puppies and their parents and is sure to raise them in a loving environment where they learn early socialization skills and great temperament. We highly recommend Crème of the Crop Dachshunds and are forever grateful to Leslie and Sam for giving us our perfect angel!

Our journey to finding a puppy came months before we chose Crème of the Crop Dachshunds. I came across a picture of an English Cream Dachshund on Instagram and told Jordan that if we ever got a puppy, that’s what I HAD to have. Sure enough, I get a call one day telling me that she put a deposit down! From that point on, Leslie and Crème of the Crop Dachshunds were an incredible experience. We were fairly early and got second pick of the liter. We knew we wanted a boy, the smallest and sweetest of the liter. On the day we picked up Fig to bring him home, we were in awe of how perfect he was from head to tail; he is exactly what we wanted. Crème of the Crop Dachshunds was very helpful, very informing, and very caring of our boy and his siblings. We would highly recommend this great home if you are wanting one of these special puppies!!

Much, much love for Leslie and Crème of the Crop Dachshunds! We purchased the most darling puppy, Magnolia, from Crème of the Crop Dachshunds and are so happy! Leslie is helpful, knowledgeable and most importantly loving towards both us as dog-owners and her own dogs and puppies. It is obvious how much time, energy and care she puts into raising healthy and happy dogs. The updates, videos and pictures that Leslie sends help create a bond with your puppy before actually meeting him/her in person. I consider Leslie a friend and am certain we will work with her again in the future. Thank you Crème of the Crop Dachshunds - we are grateful and so happy with our bundle of sunshine!
