|Hmm. I came here on the Dachshund forum to ask about unusual colors. My sister met someone in a pet store who had recently purchased a pair of longhairs (they think for breeding) for thousands of dollars, that were some rare color that they'd never heard of but couldn't remember the name of... I was curious and was going to ask.
I hope they're not dapples then... my sis said they were all marble-y looking. That causes health problems with the genes?! Why on earth would you breed knowing that?!
Is there a link to information about colors/genetics in dachshunds? Now I'm really curious. I hope that I'm wrong, and that it wasn't dapples. It's like merles... if you want a merle, fine, breed one to a non-merle and you have a pretty good chance without the potential health problems! Yeesh. Doesn't sound that tough to me.
