I'm a dachshund human & I belong to three precious pups: Rufus, Emily & Lily. I'm affectionately known as the doxierazzie; the shutter on my camera is always snapping shots of them and their friends.
I started photographing my red, smooth, miniature dachshund Rufus when he was just a pup. He's 13 now. Over the years, we rescued two more smooth dachshunds and our pack grew to three with Emily Sue and little Lily Blossom. From the beginning, I have socialized my hound with other handsome hounds. We started with hosting playdates at home, and then organizing monthly meetups all over Southern California. And more than a decade later we're still doing it; we are the proud organizers of LA Doxies and Ojai Doxies. Join us if you're ever in the area. Each group meets 10-12 times a year. As you can imagine I've amassed a rather large and diverse collection of original dachshund images, and today I use those images to fund our 501c3 charity Dachshund Outreach Giving and Socialization (DOGS). Find us on Facebook. Our commitment is to entertain, engage and educate. And a portion of ALL sales from this endeavor will be donated to DOGS to further our grassroots community outreach efforts. Thank you in advance for the continued love and support. Best, Johnny Ortez-Tibbels
