Colour genetics can be difficult to grasp at times, the more you dive into it the more you learn and the more complicated it becomes. As a dachshund breeder, understanding dachshund colour genetics is important to me. Some of the colours are not recognised and/or some colour combinations are not desired by the ANKC. Therefore, my goal is not to breed those colours even if it is unintentionally.
The genes that determine dachshund puppy colour, coat and patterns are found in the below table.
