Dachshund Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 12/2/2004
Do dapples, double dapples, or pie balds have vision problems or problems with their eyes? Is the condition something they are born with or degenerative?

12/6/04 My friend Jeanie has raised and showed Dapples and Doubles for 23 years. Its all in the genes. However I can say that the main problems this color has is deafness. And if the line produces one deaf pup, they should no longer be bred. She has never had one deaf one born or one with any vision problems. Mac Sussie
