I just got a 6 week old (I know I know very young) dachshund puppy. He's from an elderly woman who was being placed in the hospital and could no longer care for the pups. Anyway I'm just curious if anyone has ever heard of a black and white dachshund? He's pretty much all black with a teeny bit of white on his back feet and chest.
I think he may be a Piebald. See attached: Piebald is simply a white-spotting pattern superimposed over any self color; there is no variation in the color of the solid spots or patches as there is in dapple dachshunds. True piebalds never have blue eyes and always have white tail tips. The amount of white on a piebald is variable, ranging from a full or partial white collar, white chest, belly, and feet, and a white tail tip (often called "Irish spotting"), to an almost pure white dog with a patch of color on the head and base of the tail. For instance, black and tan piebalds have solid black body patches on a white background, but they may have tan markings, or spots, where tan markings would normally occur on a self-colored dog, such as the face, feet, and under the tail. It is incorrect to refer to black and tan piebalds as tricolors. Red piebalds have solid red spots, sometimes with intermingled black hairs, on a white background. When ticking is present, tiny dots of color appear on the white areas, varying in amounts from a few single dots to an abundance of dots which run together to form a roaning effect. Both parents must be piebald, or carry the piebald gene, to produce a piebald pup. I hope this helps. Enjoy him they are a great breed and very loyal and loving. I have four of my own and two puppies which I will be selling. They grow on you!

dusty082155, sorry was only trying to help out. Was not taking credit for writing the info. Good to know. Not sure what site, I was forwarded this from someone who helped me with the same question. So I just copied it from my email and pasted it. There was no website attached to it.
I wasnt saying it to be rude. I figured that you didnt know, so just wanted to give you a heads up. Anytime you are taking any context from another website, you need to post the link so that you are giving credit to the author.
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
