Are red sable dachshunds rare?

A sable Dachshund is rare. They have black-tipped hairs that gradually transition into a lighter color closer to the skin. The red sable is most common, but you might also see black and tan or another coloring.

This is a chocolate & tan longhair puppy with green eyes. You can often find chocolate dachshunds with green or even yellow eyes. The dachshund standard states the eyes are of medium size, almond-shaped and dark-rimmed, with an energetic, pleasant expression; not piercing; very dark in color, however, so dark eyes are preferred.

Dachshunds that fall between the weight ranges are typically just oversized miniatures, and are often called by the slang term tweenies. Blue is a dilution of black and tan caused by a recessive gene.

Isabella is a dilution of chocolate and tan caused by the same recessive gene as blue. A red wild boar like this picture can appear black and tan from a distance. As with wild boar, each of the individual hairs is banded at the base near the skin with red and black at the tip.

As a general rule, a true (red) sable will look black and tan from a distance. Cream is thought to be a result of the same dilution as wheaten, and is seen in longhair and occasionally smooth coats. Shaded creams are born very dark at birth and lighten as they age.

These dogs were a very light color at birth, and as they aged, the coat got darkermore and more red. The top picture is Jake, an Ivey and Thor son from our Twilight litter. The recessive dilution gene does not affect the black (or chocolate) in a dachshunds coat, only the red or in this case, the tan points, leaving them a beautiful light cream color.

Piebald causes large areas of white that may or may not have tiny speckles of color called ticking. Brindle causes black tiger-like stripes on the red, tan or cream areas of the dog. The dapple pattern in dachshunds comes from a semi-dominant gene causing the base or self color of the dog to exhibit patches of dilution.

Dapples can occur with any base color and the patches may or may not fade as a puppy matures. There is no excuse for deliberately breeding for this pattern with all the defects and health risks associate with it. Anyone adopting one of these special dachshunds from a shelter or rescue should be prepared for the dog to possibly have health concerns beyond even what is visible.

NEVER purchase a double dachshund puppy from a irresponsible breeder, as your money will only encourage them to produce more of these poor dogs. It can be impossible to tell a double-dapple from a double-dapple piebald visually, and genetic testing would be necessary if there is any question after reviewing the dogs pedigree. There are many genetic and phenotypic variations within these colors and patterns presented on this page.

We would be glad to help you determine the color, coat, or pattern of your dachshund if you have questions!
