Dachshunds come in at least 25 different colors and appearances, as far as we can gather. Apart from the signature black and tan coat color, Dachshunds also dawn red, blue, fawn, and cream color coats. These colors make unique and beautiful combinations with various coat patterns common among Dachshunds like dapple, merle, and brindle. The last variable that makes up a Dachshund’s coat colors and patterns is its coat type. There are smooth, wire-haired, and long-haired Dachshunds, and we shall take a look at this spectrum first.
