Question Newborn color changes


New Member
I am a long-time owner/lover of the dachshund. I am also a new breeder and have a question about one of Penny's first puppies. She is a long-coat black and tan with tan under the tail and on her feet. I don't see any tan points on her face at this point. Maybe a hint of color. Could it be possible that the tan points brighten up with time? I can't find any information on this on the internet. Thanks!

How old is the puppy you are asking about? Puppies coloring can change quite a bit from birth to maturity. If the puppy you are asking about is the baby in your photo by your name, she looks quite young and I can see the tan points above her eyes. It is entirely possible that they will lighten up as she gets older. She is precious.
