Cream Long Haired Dachshund - Interesting Facts

Irish Cream long haired dachshund – Is it just the Irish version of the famous English Clean Cream or is this a different coat type altogether?

How much does a long haired cream Dachshund cost?

Standard dachshunds typically cost somewhere between $400 and $1,100, depending on the reputability of the -

breeder and the exact type of dachshund. Cream dachshunds are especially rare and highly valued, however, so their prices tend to be much steeper.

Clean cream dachshunds, in particular, regularly come with price tags north of $2,000 or $2,500. In fact, you can even find cream dachshunds going for as much as $5,000.

Are cream dachshunds born black?

Not really. Shaded Cream dachshunds are born with a darker coat that gets lighter with age but they are never really black.

And Clean Cream dachshunds are the opposite of that - they are even lighter when they are born and they get slightly darker with age.

So, no, cream dachshunds are not born black. However, newborn Shaded Cream dachshunds are pretty dark so you’d be forgiven to call them “black”.

How long do cream dachshunds live?

Cream dachshunds – whether Clean Cream, Shaded Cream, Irish Cream, or any other variation – don’t really suffer from any extra health problems –

compared to other dachshund coat types. So, their average life expectancy is about the same as that of any other standard dachshund – 12 to 16 years.

Of course, this is just an average. If you’ve got a puppy that’s in poor health due to bad luck or being bred in a puppy mill, then their lifespan can be lower.

And, vice versa, a puppy that has no significant hereditary health problems can live well beyond the 16-year average if you give it good care, –

quality food, proper exercise, and routine vet visits. So, as with all other things in life, this comes down to a combination of effort and luck.

Never ever buy dogs from puppy mills and always ask for a health certificate for your pup.
