Dachshund Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 2/7/2008
If a male dapple and a red female daschund have been breed will there be any dapple puppies? Also, will there be a recessive gene passed to any of the puppies that could later produce the dapple? Are there any good books on genetics for daschunds?

2/9/08 Yes, but not every litter. If the male or female does not show this coloring, it is less likely to happen. This is basic genetics. Colors are at random. For example my dogs are black and tan and red. Most of the puppies have been red. It took three litters to see black. And even then, it was more chocolate. Laurie
