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?

2/12/08 dapple can not be carried. so if the puppy doesn't have any dappling they will not produce any dapples unless bred with a dapple. and yes if you breed a dapple mal with a red female you will get some dapples and some solids. it also depends on what else the parnets carry for and what colors.
