Doxies should be bred solid to solid or
dapple to solid only.
When two dapples are bred together you get double-dapples*
PLEASE do not support breeders who breed double-dapples *
Always adopt. I was adopted by my mom and dad.
Spread the warning, keep breeding safe!
* WARNING there are lethal genes commonly associated with double-dapple.
- The problems associated with this are; still births, varying degrees of vision and hearing loss, mentally under-developed and could also include reduced sight or no eyes at all!
- So adopt a double-dapple (only) or choose a standard colored dachshund; a solid or piebald/dapple colored dog.
- Remember that single dapple dachshunds do not have lethal problems and if a single dapple is bred to a solid (any non-dapple) there are no problems associated with single dapple dachshunds.
