I love dachshunds and I have recently done a bunch of research on them. I have a question and I was hoping someone may be able to help me out. Doxies come in many colors (red, black and tan, chocolate, isabella, wild boar, etc.) and many patterns (dapple, brindle, etc.). My personal favorites are chocolate and tan, isabella and tan, and dapples. I have noticed that the vast majority of successful show dachshunds are red or black and tan. I am sure there are similar trends in other breeds. Does anyone know why? I would love to <eventually> get into showing a dachshund of my own (years from now) and I would love a chocolate and tan. I was just curious as to why this may be the case. Thanks!!
