Hi Mike,
My daughter has a mini black and tan Dachshund. He is a cross between a long haired father and a short haired mother. The long haired trait comes out in the hair around his ears, his elbows and arounf his rear end. He weighs about 7 lbs. His name is Coal and his sister is a full sized piebald long haired femalenamed Sugarfoot. Her name came after we got her in Nov. of 2009. She was white with 5 big black polka dots and a black and tan face mask. The mask has a white stripe going up between the eyes to the back of the head. As she got older streaks of black and tan have appeared in her fur, We have learned it is called ticking. She also has black spots on her belly so all of her black spots go all the way to the skin. My daughter is not planning to breed them but Coal could be used as a stud since he does have AKC papers. Sugarfoot was not registered as a Full blooded Regsitered pup by the breeder she was bought from . They both love to go for car rides , love to run and play outside. We can't imagine life with out them .

My last one was a pretty good dog most of the time. I think Trixie will be once she loses her puppy teeth.

Too many genetics to learn and know of the line to breed Dachshunds and you can't trust what the pedigree says to tell you those genetics (like your Piebald may actually be double dapple).

Lucky dog! She's so cute in her sweaters. Great job! (...but, if she gets much longer, you'll have to knit human legwarmers with armholes for her... ; )
