We are a mother and daughter team, Valerie and Jordan Trammell. Jordan has recently produced a legacy of her own -- a baby girl, Zoey! So now we are three generations of Angelhearts! Along with this new addition, Angelheart has also recently expanded to two locations! Both are in North Central Arizona.
Our interest in the Dachshund Breed began in June, 2002, when Jordan (age 12) fell in love at first sight with her beloved little man, Doodle. Jordan begged her mom for the chance to own that little charmer and without realizing what she was getting into, Valerie agreed to buy him. Little did she know -- Dachshunds are contagious!
Within a year, there were two dachshunds, then three, then four! Valerie had raised Yorkshire Terriers with her own mother since the 70’s, so the traditional “Family Business” continued... this time with Dachshunds! 35 years of experience in breeding dogs goes a long, long way!
In 2006, we completed our new home (and dachshund ranch) where the Angelheart Gang is raised - on the banks of Clear Creek under the tall trees where the change of seasons is enjoyed by all!. (see The Facility) Our location is just an hour North of Phoenix on I-17 in the cooler climate of the Verde Valley! If you’ve heard of Sedona, AZ - we are 30 minutes away from Red Rock Country. (Valerie was raised in Sedona in the 70’s). Our second location is on the banks of the Verde River on a 2 acre ranch facility.
Our goal has been to produce some of the most spectacular dachshund colors and patterns offered in the Southwest. And so far -- we’ve kept our promise! It is difficult to find quality color in many parts of the U.S. but we have made it our job to research the genetics, health histories and pedigrees of the dogs we breed (thoroughly) to ensure you get a healthy, happy puppy that will last a lifetime.
