I’m not sure where this originated, but I took it from the Facebook page of a group called I Love Dachshunds. This illustration tells you everything you need to know about Dachshund coat colors, but it also applies to many other dogs, as well. I like that it pictures each coat color with it’s proper name so you can “put a face with a name.” Make sure you click on it to see it full-sized.
I started a while ago to write an article about the genetics of coat color, but I was lost within five minutes, so I know I couldn’t have made it clear enough for anyone to understand. This chart is very helpful!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
