We bought two gorgeous babies from Marissa a few months ago. Not only is Marissa a person you want to be friends with for the rest of your life but she carefully breeds her babies to produce the most adorable, healthy, sweet dispositioned balls of fuzz you can imagine. All of her babies are friendly, clean and up to date with their shots and worming. I received a packet with follow up instructions as well as a goody bag with toys a blanket and food samples. The babies slept in bed with us from the first night which was wonderful. I will definitely continue to build our relationship with Marissa and will gladly love on any babies her has available. I give her five hearts
Dear Marissa,
I wanted to write and thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us find the newest member of our family. Gilbert (from Mylee) has been a treat since he came in our door. He’s happy, healthy, and pee pad trained! Most of all though, thank you for being understanding and working with me from the beginning. You took my “I’ve never done this before!” phone call, and explained things to me for an hour! I got pictures every week of Gilbert so I could see how he was growing. You even sent me home with a starter pack, which was an added bonus, but turned into a necessity.
Thank you so much for your patience and for our happy new puppy, we couldn’t have done it without you.

You have bred the sweetest dogs with the best disposition. My daughter has one of your pups for three years . She is the kindest sweetest dog you will ever find. Always up for belly rubs. Wouldn’t hurt a fly. Loud bark for a little thing  .You could never wrong with a pup from Marissa.. if we want another pup there is no question who we would call. So pleased beyond expectations. Thanks Marissa. Joan



Hi Marissa, This is way overdue, but wanted to send you some pictures of Wilson. He is doing wonderfully! We are so happy that we found you and our perfect puppy! EVERYONE adores him. I absolutely believe you when you say you breed for temperament. He is such a sweetheart. All puppy, but a real cuddler! I just can’t believe how much he’s grown. He fits in to our family beautifully and the boys just love him. As predicted, my husband is crazy about him as well. He is very social with other dogs and has a bunch of “buddies” in our neighborhood. Thank you so much for working with us and all that you do to make the process go so smoothly. You were such a pleasure to work with and it is so clear that you take a lot of pride and love what you’re doing. I am in the process of convincing my husband that Wilson needs a buddy! I fell in love with the “blue” pups you recently sold. If you have any older pics of them, I’d love to see them. Thanks again, Kimber




I just wanted to say that the past 6 month process of this adoption was a delight.

You were very informative, straightforward. Professional and fair.

There was never any guessing about when we might get our little guy.

When we did decide on Ollie, sight unseen, you were diligent to keep sending us photos to start our bond.

He has been a well behaved and a joy to our family.

Thank you.

Hi Marissa, I have an update on Maxie for you she is getting her emotional support dog jacket in a couple weeks. She goes with me every week when I go for my treatment. She is the most awesome little girl and she just wants to please everyone. She has a great dispostion and loves to go visit other patients at the IV clinic also. But here she is with her big sister. Again thank you for one of the most precious lovable furbaby.






Willow passed her Canine Good Citizenship Certification and her TDI Therapy Certification this evening. She is also a certified Service Dog. We go on two to four Therapy visits each week. She really enjoys children when she goes to Libraries for them to read to her. Thank you Marissa for the best Doxie I could ever wished for. Cindy


We can’t say enough about the process of adopting a dachshund from Marissa!!!  My dachshund of 14.5 years crossed the Rainbow Bridge in late November. Emoji My partner and I have been together for 7 years so Jacob Dylan was not technically hers but she treated him as though he was hers.  So once we lost him we were constantly on the internet looking for breeders in NJ that would have litters due around Easter.  I found a website called the Top 100 Dachshund Breeders.  MarissasDoxieHaven was ranked in the Top 10 so I knew she was respectable and worth a look at.  It just so happens that the first conversation we had convinced me that Marissa was the one!!!  She had 2 litters that were due in February and we could not wait to see what both mommies were having.  Even though we wanted a male, what are the odds that all 8 puppies would be female.  We worked it out with Marissa to change our mind to a female but we were still looking for a black and tan.  Well in the litter that was born on February 5, our sweet little Kona was born.  She is 1 of 5 puppies and she is a beautiful black and cream!!!  Marissa was unbelievable throughout the whole process not only sending pictures from Day 1 but on a weekly basis new pictures and videos.  At week 6 we went to see our little girl and were just so excited and filled with such happiness.  Kona is so much more than we thought and seeing the home that she came from we know why she is so sweet.  We could not contain our excitement for the next 2 weeks before we were able to go back and get Kona.  When we arrived at the house Marissa had her all ready with a puppy package to bring home, a fresh bath, and all shots up to date with vet papers to give to our vet!!  I highly recommend MarissasDoxieHaven to anyone looking for a miniature dachshund who will represent the best characteristics of the Dachshund Breed!!! Emoji Kona has now been home with us for almost 1 week and she is doing great and we love her so much!!!  EmojiEmojiEmojiEmoji

We first emailed Marissa in June and since then she has been nothing but amazing. She called us almost right away after our first email to set up a time for us to come visit. She always emailed and texted us to keep us updated about Honey’s pregnancy. Then when the puppies were born in August, she texted us pictures of the puppies. After picking out our little Gemma, she texted us pictures and updated us about her. After waiting what seemed like forever, we finally got to pick up Gemma in October. We love her so much and spoil her rotten. We are so thankful we found Marissa’s Doxie Haven, she is the best! She made us part of each step and even after picking Gemma up, she has continued to keep contact with us. Answering any questions we may have, you won’t find another dachshund breeder quite like Marissa. Thank you so much Marissa for our princess Gemma! 🙂

“From the very first phone call with Marissa to the point in which we picked up our puppy-I knew that Marissa’s Doxie Haven was a rare and wonderful find. Marissa knows the dachshund breed inside and out and answered all of my questions with patience and professionalism. Her dogs are some of the sweetest, smartest, most adorable dachshunds around. When we picked up our little Tally we were just overwhelmed with how sweet, cuddly, smart and good she was! It’s clear that Marissa spends countless hours with her dogs and puppies– which make them the best pets anyone could ask for! We really appreciated the fact that she sent weekly updates and pictures about our puppy so we could be involved in the early stages of her life! She also put together a wonderful puppy care package and told us that after we left, she wasn’t going anywhere! She truly loves what she does and it pays off. I couldn’t ask for a better experience from start to end! Now that we’re home with our first dachshund, I just know it won’t be our last! We’ll be back to Marissa’s Doxie Haven!!”

“About 2 months ago, we lost one of our sweet dachshund to cancer, and decided immediately that we wanted another one to join or family.  We came across Marissa’s Doxie Haven, and after our first discussion together, we knew immediately that we found the right fit.  Marissa’s love for her dogs was immediately evident in the numerous photos and updates we received of our puppy, and the care he received before we brought him home.  Marissa was compassionate to our situation and made the puppy selection process easy and enjoyable.  No question was too small and I always felt I could call her just to say “hello” and get an update on our puppy.

I will recommend anyone looking for a dachshund to Marissa’s Doxie Haven, and am confident that anyone using her will have the same pleasant experience we did.  We thank her from the bottom of our hearts for a sweet little Otto.”

I just brought home my beautiful puppy, she is so sweet. It has been a wonderful experience dealing with Marissa. She really cares for and loves her pets. I would buy another pup from her. Thank You for my wonderful pet. 7/23/10

I have purchased 1 pup from Marissa so far and couldnt be any happier with the experience. Im in the process of purchasing my second angel from her and have no bad feelings or qualms about it. She truly cares deeply for her little angels and it shows when they come home. They are pre-loved, they show no signs of neglect, they are happy healthy bouncing little pups ready and roaring to give you a run for your money! If you are looking to add a new edition to your family I would suggest buying from Marissa. She will stand by any puppy she sells with up most confidence in what she does. Through my journey I have become to know her very well and have learned that there is not very many breeders left that breed for the right reasons like she does. I have built a very strong friendship with Marissa that I wouldn’t trade for anything. She truly has a heart of gold when it comes to her doxie kids. If you have any questions or doubts about buying from her please feel free to contact me im sure I can put those worries to rest. You truly will get the greatest little pup for your family.

“We were so pleased with our experience purchasing a puppy from Marissa’s Doxie Haven. She was so kind and detailed throughout the entire process. She also made it a priority to send us photos of our “baby” as she was growing before she was old enough for us to pick her up. We would absolutely recommend selecting your next family member from her!”

Courtney Jenks

My wife and I just bought a puppy from Marissa’s Doxie Haven and the experience could not have been better. We had to wait a few weeks until we could bring our puppy home with us but Marissa let us visit the puppy any time we wanted and let us stay as long as we wanted.

 If you are interested in buying a Daschund I would recommend Marissa’s Doxie Haven to anyone out there. You will be very pleased!!

Hello Marissa, I wanted to say that we are very pleased with how we received our puppies. They came with a really nice puppy pack and looked very well cared for. We are also pleased with the way you updated us with pictures and videos of Blizzard & Krickett all the time .  It was a pleasure meeting you and doing business with you and it was a great experience. We love our new puppies that we bought from you and we are glad we decided to get them from you. I would definitely recommend you to people who are looking for a new puppy to add to their family. Thanx again Marissasdoxiehaven.com 🙂 We will keep you posted and send you pictures of the puppies. Thank You, Gessenia & Maria Open-mouth smile


Hi Marissa!  I cannot begin to tell you how amazing you made our first puppy purchase!!!  We have only ever rescued our puppies before from shelters so this was a whole new experience for us.  You made it a very smooth one!  I actually had coworkers say that I was so involved in the process from prior to the birth up until I took him home that they felt like I was the one giving birth!  😉  You helped make a connection and a bond from before Fenway was even born!  I loved the x-rays, the video of the birth, the photos every week and the videos of him growing up as well!  You an tell that your heart goes into each and every puppy no matter what.  Fenway is perfect in every way.  He melts our heart with every sideways turn of his head and every cute little run.  You can tell when we came to visit your home that your doggies are your babies.  I am so happy to have found you and cannot begin to thank you enough.  You made the entire experience amazing.  We are truly in love.  We cannot thank you enough!

Dear Marissa,
I would like to thank Marissa for my sweet, handsome little boy. “Aspen” is just a perfect little gentleman. He traveled well down here on the plane with me and has made himself at home with my other dachshunds. Clearly he is from a well thought out litter that meets and exceeds standards.
It was a joy to correspond with Marissa during the purchase process, and she was very helpful , going out of her way to bring “Aspen” to the airport for me to fly home with him.
Lorena Ashcroft

We could not be happier with the bundle of joy we brought home from Marissa’s Doxie Haven. Marissa cares about her dogs and it shows! Peaches was in excellent health and very well behaved right from the start. Marissa was very easy to work with and made the adoption process stress free. My husband and I are loving every minute of puppy parenthood. Thank you Marissa!
