The Puppies On This Page Are Not For Sale!

 

 

11/05/2016

 

The Creams to me is a unique and exquisite color and also my most favorite. I have gotten dachshunds in both Smooth Hair and Long Hairs.

Some Dachshund Breeders will tell you the only true English creams dachshund come only in the Long Hairs. I am not here to dispute this claim, but I myself  have gotten the creams with the Chinchilla Dilution Gene Series ("C") in both Coats, Long & Smooth.

Every dachshund has two alleles from each gene series:
one inherited from their sire and one inherited from their dam.
The combination of alleles that a dachshund inherits from their parents determines their color, pattern, and coat.
Just like humans, this is what makes every puppy unique.

 

I am in no way an expert on the subject and in fact I learn something new almost everyday. When you start researching the genetics of your dachshund, you can get quite confused. Out of lack of knowledge and experience I have in the past register a dachshund the wrong color.

I believe a Cream with the chinchilla "C" gene Series is a True Cream rather it is quote: English/UK or rather it comes from Australia or New Zealand or born right here in the United States. Both parents need to carry for the Cream (chinchilla gene) to produce the cream.

I do not advertise my Creams as "English" creams or "American" creams. Cream is cream, no matter where it was born. Though the Creams, if you go far enough back in a Pedigree will have English (UK) Breeding and first appeared in a litter sired by:

Eng Ch Kizzhar Kavalcade ( a gorgeous red).

Usually what breeders call the American Cream is the result of the Dilute Red gene.

Also some Dachshund Breeders will place a high dollar price for a Cream. To an degree I understand this with the initial cost of importing a dog to the US, as I have 4 dogs that were imported and the cost to do so is quite expensive. My advice though would be cautious about paying thousands of dollars for very young, not even weaned puppies. Do your homework before paying such prices. Be aware that a lot of commercial puppy breeders/backyard dachshund breeders in the U.S. have been importing poor quality creams from the UK puppy breeders/backyard dachshund breeders for several years now and are advertising them as "English Creams" and are asking outrageous prices for them.  Just because a dog has English Creams in its background does not guarantee that it is a quality dog or that it is worth the thousands of dollars being asked.  

I will say there is nothing like a Long Hair Exquisite Cream Dachshund, but then the Long Hairs are my favorites too.

Most of the Cream Dachshund Puppies are born the color of what I describe as a charcoal color or donkey gray as some refer to them.  As they mature some lose most of the overlay shading, although some will keep the darker overlay in different degrees. These are those that are referred to as Shaded Creams. 

I am learning from litter to litter more about the Creams. I have also found that the "E Red" (alleles, a code for a gene) can also effect the shade of cream and in some cases are actually a shade of red instead of cream. It can also dilute a pattern of a dog. Meaning that although a dog might appear solid in color, the E Red could have diluted the Brindle or Dapple pattern and not until that dog has a litter of pups will you know, but one of those puppies parents would be Brindle or Dapple.

Alleles is usually the DNA Code for the sequences that code for a Gene.

An example is a gene for a blossom color in many species of a flower. A single gene controls the color of the petals, but there may be several different versions (or alleles) of the gene. One version might result in red petals while another white petals. The resulting color of an individual flower will depend on which two alleles it possesses for the gene and how the two interact.

Both the English Creams and the American Creams carry the same dominate and recessive genes. The difference with the True creams they will have 2 copies of the Chinchilla Dilution (C Series). The American Cream will have 2 copies of the Blue Dilution ( D Series).

I have personally had puppies born as cream as cream can be and as they matured turned a diluted clear red. Meaning although the Chinchilla gene might be behind them the little E Red affected the outcome of the adult color. Again the Chinchilla Gene has to be behind both parents to produce the luscious cream color. It all depends how the alleles (the version) within the gene pool mixes.

The following pictures are Puppies that I have had and you can see the difference in color as they mature into that luscious Cream.

These are some pictures of a litter effected by the E Red Recessive Alleles, "D" Series. The mother is a Red Brindle carrying the Clear Red Gene and the father is a Cream with the Chinchilla Dilution Gene "C" Series.

Now although the cream color pups look cream, remember they have been effected also with the E Red, Clear Red Gene, "D Series".

In the case of the recessive red dachshund, Creams that are born very light in color are more a Golden Cream or Golden Buff color. They do not have the black overlay because of the recessive red alleles (ee factor), which prevents any black from showing up in their coats. These are the Clear Creams.

But remember with this litter the mother does not carry for the Chinchilla Gene that I am a where of, only the recessive E alleles. Both parents have to carry Chinchilla to produce the Creams.

The Dilute Red can produce Creams that almost appear white at birth. As they get older they get darker and by the time they are a year old they are obviously in most cases a Dilute Red.

I kept 2 of the pups that appear cream.

In the Pictures below their colors start changing gradually.

CC is one the lightest pups in the picture above. In fact she almost looked whitish Cream. I sold CC shortly after this picture was taken.

"PC" 12 Weeks

As you can see his color is changing gradually as he gets older from a very creamy color to a dilute clear Red.

This is a new litter of pups just born 08/29/2006. It is very similar to the one I have listed above that carries the E Red Alleles Gene.

The difference being is the dam of this litter carries the Chinchilla Gene as well as the E Red Alleles Gene.

It will be interesting to see if they will retain their gorgeous Clear Cream Color. Also you need to remember because of the E Alleles Gene these pups could also be brindle with the stripes being diluted so therefore would not show up.
