When talking about dachshunds, most people imagine a short haired black & tan or just tan dog. And those are indeed the most common colors dachshunds come in. What are the rarest colors you can find in dachshunds, however? The ones that are hardest to find but also immediately grab people’s eyes? Arguably the rarest dachshund color is the full-black one. This can seem weird at first as bi-color and tri-color Doxies often have black on their coats. But, when you think about it, when’s the last time you’ve seen a full-black dachshund? This color, while officially recognized by most kennel clubs is exceedingly rare because of how difficult it is to breed such dogs without inbreeding. Another very cool color you’d be surprised is very rare is sable. It occurs only in long haired dachshunds and it’s a unique reddish base color with either lightening or darkening hair tips. This gives long haired sable Doxies a fascinating flowing look. Blue and tan is also a very cool and rare look as it comes from a recessive gene combination. Brindled piebald, Wild boar, English cream, Fawn, and full-chocolate are also very rare.
What colors do long haired Dachshunds come in?
The dachshund breed can come in dozens of colors and color combinations. Add the several different coat lengths and types, and Doxies are one of the most diverse breeds in terms of appearance. These dogs can come in sold-color, bi-color, and tri-color coats as well as in various brindle or sable color patterns. Some are very common such as the black and tan or full tan or red. Others, such as full black, English crea, Wild boar, or Fawn are notably rare and fascinating. There are also Wheaten, blue, blue and tan, black and cream, fawn and tan, piebald, dapple and double dapple, sable, brindle, and other gorgeous color combinations. Many colors also come in shaded variants. So, it’s safe to safe that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to dachshunds and their color schemes. Going for some of the rarer ones is perfectly fine, of course, but you ought to be ready for a heftier price. It’s also important to make sure the pup you’re getting is healthy and has been properly bred – some color patterns are dependent on the combination of recessive genes which means that some breeders resort to inbreeding to bump up their profits.
