Welcome to Lil’ Ruffhouse

Lil’ Ruffhouse is an exclusive in-home cage-free dog boarding facility for dachshunds and other socialized small breed dogs. We also proudly breed beautiful AKC Dachshund puppies.  We live on 2.5 acres in Terrell, TX  just 30 minutes from Dallas and conveniently located off of 205, minutes from I-20, HWY80 and I-30.

People have referred to our place as a Dachshund Disneyland, or Heaven on Earth for dogs, and often times, I am told what a dream job I have.  And I agree wholeheartedly!

Properly socialized dogs thrive in this open, cage-free dog boarding environment with the comforts of home and unlimited access to the outdoors for exercise and adventures.  It’s my goal to give dog owners peace of mind while traveling, and to provide a vacation for their dog while they enjoy their time away, without all the worry.   My enduring love for the Dachshund breed motivated me to open Lil’Ruffhouse in June of 2011. 

When you need a cage-free dog boarding home for your small dog, please text me at 281-636-7745. Our clients come from Dallas/Rockwall and the surrounding DFW community.
