Ravenswood Dachshunds Reports & Reviews (20)File a complaint
Back in March we were looking for a mini for my daughter. We lost one a few years back and always knew we wanted to add another back to our pack. We have 5 dogs and love them all so much! My daughter was going back off to college and wanted to get a pup during her summer home, and since COVID had struck, we knew we would be home all the time to get him all puppy trained. Since it was COVID, we agreed to meet at a gas station in Holladay, TN. (Which I would never do because you always want to see the condition of the kennel and parents) Cue the nightmare. The old couple met us with 3 pups...none of which were the pic of the dog we wanted. 2 seemed to be full grown and bald spots everywhere, with what I now know was the mange. The other little guy was much smaller and said to be 8 weeks and vet confirmed that seemed correct. I did not feel at all comfortable with the sale, but honest to God I could not drive off and leave the precious little fella. Leaving the other two has haunted me since. I did report to my vet and later found out that our little Alfie did come from this horrible hell hole they called Ravenwood. This place was verified on puppyfind.com and all looked so overwhelmingly legit. Website was great and all their pups looked beautiful. His first month home with us he started going to the vet. Blood in his stool, worms severely, lung infection, coughed and sneezed for months. His testicles also never dropped and we had to have extensive surgery to get them out of his abdomen. They were the size of a rice grain and the doctor said it was the most difficult neuter he had ever done. He had to go home on morphine! We found out through a lady at my daughters gym that in fact he came from the monsters that called themselves Ravenwood Dashschunds. Criminals! They found over 600 pups there in the most inhumane conditions. I will turn over all his vet papers to whomever is doing he prosecution. They deserve the harshest of punishments! They apparently got busted back in 2003 and were ordered to not have animals for 10 years. I’m sure they didn’t abide by those rules. Long story short, Alfie is the happiest, most loving, human friendly puppy in the world and has overcome a lot! He is our little trooper and I would have taken him again 1000 times over. He is our little rescue baby and we will give him the best possible life we are able. I pray they take these old monsters straight to a cell and leave them there to suffer the way they made these precious little furs suffer.

My husband and I drove almost 5 hours to get our puppy. It definitely wasn’t the puppy we saw on the picture. He smelled of urine. He cream color was yellowed from pee stain and his tail had very little fur on it. We questioned the man about his age but he kept insisting he was 12 weeks old. We knew better. The puppy had all his adult teeth. I knew it wasn’t the puppy we were expecting but I couldn’t leave him. I gave the man $400 and we left. The older man and woman met us at a gas station off the interstate. They were late but called and said they were on their way. My Wiley got very sick and threw up on the way home. We stopped at a gas station to clean up. When I sat Wiley down-he drug his hind legs as if he couldn’t walk! I took him to a vet care clinic as soon as we got home. He never stood for the vet but all test showed he was okay except for a bad ear infection and dehydrated. And the vet said he was older than the 12 weeks. The vet suggested we bring him back or see a vet in a few days. She didn’t think the shot record authentic. I gave him a bath, food and water and he did take a few steps. He didn’t bark but would howl when he was left alone. That’s how we came up with the name Wiley from Wiley Coyote. He was Beau on the website. I tried to contact them again but no one ever answered or returned my calls. I love my little Wiley and he is fattening up and doing well. He does have issues with his belly, his vision, and he doesn’t like being left alone. I have an older mini and they do okay together but Wiley still follows me everywhere. If I sit he is in my lap. If I go to another room he’s not far behind. If I leave the house when I come home he greets me dancing on his hind legs, grinning and showing his teeth, and as soon I pet him he pees everywhere. He still isn’t good with other people, he just barks and barks. He seems to want to get closer to them but afraid at the same time and he pees when others try to pet him. He’s my baby and I love him dearly. The people who were supposed to be raising these puppies need to pay for mistreating them and using these babies for a means to make money.
We got our baby girl at the first of May. They met us at the truck stop saying because of COVID they weren’t allowing anyone to come to their home. We understood that and agreed. After driving 5 hrs we get a phone call that they are running late but will be there. They told us they would mail her papers to us because of us changing her name. (We didn’t know how that was done so we believed them) She smelled horrible and had feces all over her but we thought that’s ok she’s been in the car with the other pups and accidents happen. 5 hrs to get back home and we find she has bloody diarrhea (I called and text “Alexis” with no return text or call) and we were scared to death she’s sick and dying. We take her to the vet had her checked out and nothing was found as to why she had the diarrhea. Thinking it was her being nervous because of the change we waited it out and changed her food. She did stop and so far she seems healthy and is active. Obviously she’s not registered like we were told...we love her dearly and it doesn’t matter to us it’s just the whole principle of being lied to. The picture with the white background is the one from their website.
I purchased a puppy from then in February and met the same older couple at a gas station also. When I walked up to their car the puppy she had in her lap was way bigger than 12 weeks old that she had said he was. I hesitated and his color was almost a yellow color not a cream and tan like the picture of the one I picked out. I commented that he was bigger than I thought he would be at 12 weeks. So she reach in floor board and picked up another puppy that was around 7-8 weeks old. So I took both back to my vehicle to let my wife see them. We picked the little one out. They today us he was a silver Isabella piebald. We brought him home had him vet checked and the vet said he was age they had told use. I usually wait till my puppies are 6 months old before I have them spayed or neutered so at 6 months his testicals hadn’t dropped. So we scheduled his surgery and with covid19 it was done July 21. They had to do exploratory surgery to find them and only found his right one which was caught up in a hernia that wasn’t showing. The vet couldn’t find the left one. I have contacted them several times about his paperwork but no reply. I wouldn’t take anything for our little guy whose name is Dexter DoLittle and only weighs 8lbs but eats really good. Vet said he is a true miniature daschund and with his color and two blue eyes is somewhat rare.
Same exact thing happened to us! Bloody diarrhea and the whole nine yards. Horrible case of worms and lung infection. Surgery was the hardest case our doctor ever had and his testicles were the size of rice grains! We couldn’t love the little guy more and know we literally saved his precious little life.
When I asked about a certain puppy, they tried to suggest 2 others "they had good temperament "
I got my dog they same place, same way. First of January, drove a little car. Pandy has been fine, checked out at vet and had her spayed. But she is now showing signs of alopecia. Did research, she's a silver Isabella and dachshunds are known for this. I live very close, within 15 miles of the place that got busted. I have worried about those babies and I may have one
Around the first of April, I first contacted Ravenswood Dachshunds. I left a message and later that day someone texted me. I asked about a specific puppy and was told she was available. We agreed that we would meet at a truck stop near Holladay, TN. I didn’t think anything about it because it was the beginning of the COVID craziness. I handed over $700 and this couple in their late 70s gave me the “whisky dapple” puppy. She was bigger than I thought she should be, but they said she was three months old. The pup was terrified, filthy, and had a big bald place on her back. The man said that she had had an accident with a fence post and the hair was already coming back. I almost asked for the money back, but the puppy looked so sad and scared that I couldn’t. I got her home, gave her a bath, and began trying to calm her. Two weeks later, she had a vet appointment. The vet told me that my 7lb. sweetie was not 14 weeks old, she was closer to 8 months old, she had worms, her hair loss was from folliculitis, and probably had not had any shots. She was scared of everyone but me so we figured that she had never been loved on or socialized. I already loved her, but was mad that someone had lied to me. I called and left a message saying I wanted to speak to them about a puppy. They never answered on consecutive calls nor did they call me back.
We got our dachshund from them in Nov. 2019. I called and left a message and was Texted back answering all the questions I had. I asked to see pics of the parents. Which they provided albeit they looked like a picture taken of a pic on a computer monitor. They gave me an address. It turned out to be a gas station not their house. Our pup stank like urine for about a week and a half, even after several baths. we had him checked out by our vet and he looked healthy and fine. We had a DNA test done and it showed he was full dachshund going three generations back. About a month later we were talking about getting him neutered and noticed his testys still had not dropped. The vet said we could wait a little while longer to give them time to drop. A couple months later they still had not dropped. We took him in for surgery to remove them except they couldn’t find them. After two vets checked they couldn’t find anything and closed him up. I called the number still in my phone for Ravenswood dachshunds and no answer. I text them asking if they possibly neutered their pups at 10 weeks or so. Nothing, no response at all. Our Vet suggested we get a testosterone test. We did and it turns out he has very low testosterone. Indicating he was either neutered very young (under ten weeks) or he was never born with them which is very rare. (1 in 10K) We love our pup and he’s a good boy but I wouldn’t buy again from them. I think we had puppy fever and maybe looked past some of the red flags that are now more obvious.
Yes! These are the same people that were busted in the 60p dog puppymill raid in Tennessee! Please email [email protected]
With any pictures, vet records, and testimonies for more evidence against these people!
Here is a pic comparison of our pup and the pup available pic. The top is off the Ravenswood dachshunds site.
So there was a big puppy mill bust over the weekend not to far from this em area with around 600 dachshunds. Not sure if it’s the same people or not. My wife was doing some detail comparisons and our dog is not the same dapple that was listed in the pic on the site.
Ours hasn't dropped either, I think he was neutered early. The vet said he couldn't find his either whe. I was feeling for it, but saw no scar. We love our pup, but I wouldn't buy another one from them.
no they meet you at a store and wont let you come to there house. the dogs are scared to death and stink to high heavens. we got one from them in November.

My husband and I love weenie dogs! After losing two in one month a year ago, we were finally ready to get a new one :) We found this website and the dogs were so pretty! We made a list of the pups that we were interested in and sent an inquiry to the email listed on the site. The woman who answered said they had 3 of the 6 that we were asking about. The next day, my husband met an older gentleman at a gas station about 50 miles from our home. He said all 3 looked sickly. Two of the pups were missing patches of hair and the one he chose was dirty and very skinny. Once home, we bathed the pup and began fattening him up. We started noticing the next day, the puppy had blood in his feces. After sever days, we took him to the vet praying it wasn’t the parvovirus. With papers in hand, the vet told us our 3 month old puppy was around 2 years old. His papers were fake and the owners haven’t responded to our calls or emails. I love this puppy, but when you spend $400, you expect to have a well taken care of “pup”! I fear that these folks are running a puppy mill and need help stopping these people. Please beware of this webpage!
To answer Scott mast. Wildersville TN is where I met them. Tiffany fox was the name I was given from the woman responding to my texts.
