Dachshund Coat Pattern:
The coat pattern of a dachshund is not uniform. There are different patterns and shades among them. Some coats have no markings at all, while others have many stripes or other patterns. There are also some coats with multiple colors or even combinations of colors on their body parts such as ears, tail tip, legs and paws.
All these variations make it possible to identify various types of dachshunds based on their coat pattern.
There are two main types of coat patterns: solid and striped. Solid coat patterns are those which do not contain any stripes or other markings whatsoever. Striped coat patterns are those which include stripes, spots, vertical bars, diagonal lines and other markings.
Solid Color Dachshunds: These dachshunds have no markings at all on their bodies except for the white spot on their nose. They are known as “solid” color dachshunds.
Striped Color Dachshunds: These dachshunds have stripes on their body, but they may also have other markings like vertical bars, horizontal lines or diagonal lines. They are called “striped” color dachshunds.
Multi Colored Dachshund: These dogs have several colors on their body including red, orange, yellow and green ones. They are also called “particolor” dachshunds.
Mismarked Dachshund: These dogs have an unusual coat pattern that is not found in other dachshunds of their color. They cannot be classified as “striped”, “solid” or “particolor” dachshunds.
Dapple Dachshund: This dog has dark patches over the lighter colored base coat. These patches can be evenly spread out over the body or be in clusters. They are also called “dappled” dachshunds.
Long Haired Dachshund: These dogs have long coats like the wirehaired dachshunds. They may or may not have an undercoat too. The long haired dachshunds may have a mix of long and wire hairs.
