WHY BUY FROM A REGISTERED BREEDER? (Summarised)

Ethically bred – You’re supporting the CODE OF ETHICS of which WE stand by.

Accountability – Registered Breeders are held accountable for the dog they breed by both ANKC bodies and their fellow Registered Breeder peers.

Predictability – Pedigree dogs have a more predictable nature, coat and type as they have been bred for 100s of years this way.

Research – ANKC Registered breeders have access to the latest health research associated with their breed. The “cross-bred vigour” is no longer relevant.

My learnings on Dachshund Coat Colours and Patterns

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.

Gene Series

A-Locus
Agouti Gene
(recessive to K-Locus)
Ay This allele is the most dominate of the agouti series. The coat colour produces a red coat which can range in colour depth from fawn to deep mahogany and may present black hairs through the coat often referred to as shading / shaded.
Aw Sable gene present in wirehaired dachshunds but really seen in other coat types and is recessive to ‘Ay’ allele. The hair is red at the base and black at the tip. The overall coat looks black until the hair is parted revealing the red.
At The Black and Tan gene is recessive to both ‘Ay’ and ‘Aw’ alleles. This At allele creates a black mask over the red coat, leaving the classic tan points on the feet, muzzle, eyebrows, chest and under the tail.
B-Locus Brown Gene (black modifer) b This recessive allele affects the eumelanin (black pigment) all pigment which was black appears brown (chocolate). Dogs must have two copies of the “b” allele one from each parent to be visually affected (chocolate).
C-Locus cch Chinchilla Dilution “cch” allele is a recessive gene and responsible for the English Cream or Wheaton in wirehairs. If affects the pheomelanin (yellow pigment) leaving the eumelanin (black pigment) alone. The A & C locus (red and cream) are co-dominate a dog which has one allele from each loci (cream carrier) will be of a lighter appearance to a regular red and darker than a cream described as blush, orange or apricot and is registered as a Red.
D-Locus d This recessive allele affects the eumelanin (black pigment) and phaeomelanin (yellow pigment) to be diluted. Dogs must have two copies of the “d” allele one from each parent to be visually affected.
