Welcome to PenDachs "All Natural Dachshunds".  Located in the beautiful hills of  West
Virginia I am a natural rearing breeder that competes in Conformation dog shows.  Many
of my dogs have champion titles with AKC, UKC, and IABCA.  They have achieved a
Best In Show win, a Reserve Best In Show, many group placements, and many Best
of Variety wins.  I am a member of the Natural Rearing Breeders Association,
the former President of the Blennerhassett Kennel Club, and attend classes at
Parkersburg Obedience Training Club. I register my puppies with both the AKC and the
UKC. My main focus is to produce happy, healthy, long lived standard smooth
Dachshunds that are chemical free and properly fed.  Please check out the links above to
see photos of each dog and learn more about where my beautiful dogs came from and
what I hope to do with my chosen breed.  Feel free to
contact me with any questions or

Please check out the links at the top of the page to view our retired dogs, planned
breedings, puppies, and information on raw feeding!

Thank you,
Marilyn Pence

Sept. 2018  (Website currently under reconstruction)
We haven't had time to build individual pages for all of our dogs so for now here is a glimpse
into who is at PenDachs or co-owned by us locally.
This handsome boy is Ozo's
Sticky Situation MLD "Cactus".  
Cactus is from two miniature
parents however at 6 months old
is nearly 14 lbs.  While he is a
longhair our girls do not carry the
longhair gene so bred to a
longhair all puppies would have a
smooth coat.  We will be using
Cactus in our breeding program
with our standard smooth girls.  
Longhair Dachshunds typically
have a softer temperament and
we love that.  We have plenty of
size behind our girls and don't fear
losing that by using this smaller
guy.  We suspect he may finish
out around 16 pounds.
This lovely girl is PenDachs Just A
Little Bit Dirty SS "Smudge".  
Smudge is one of Diva's daughters
from her 2017 litter.  As of Sept. 2018
Smudge has 9 AKC points with one
major and she is also UKC pointed as
well.  Smudge is shown sparingly and
resides here in WV with our
This is PenDachs Dirty With A
Southern Drawl SS "Pearl".  Pearl
has 4 AKC points but really does
not like to show so we will not
pursue conformation shows with
her any further.  She has
completed the requirements for
her Trick Dog Novice title and will
be trying out things other than
conformation.  Pearl is also from
Diva's 2017 litter.
