#1 Rhodesian Ridgeback Dachshund?
KRoof Posted on: 2007/4/7 16:30
I had an 8 month old red mini. His dad was a red and his mom was a black and tan. He's got a stripe of darker hair that goes down his back- from his head all the way to his tail. If I can get a good picture of it I'll post it, but it really looks like he's part Rhodesian Ridge- I mean, obviously not because he weighs barely 10 pounds. I just thought this was funny and wondered if anyone else's dox had this.

Brandy has this sort of coloring. She was the product of a mixed marriage also....LOL

Does the hair stand up or is it just a different color? Lolly has a ridge of hair that stands up like a mohawk down the center of her nose:

I think it's adorable and I love that it makes her unique. I think if the hair is just a different color, there's a name for that but I forget what it is

Nope, it doesn't stick up- unless there is a fox or something outside that gets him scared or excited. Though, I must say that little nose mohawk is adorable.

I've just never heard a ridgeback being a trait of dachshunds!

If it's just darker hair (rather than hair plastered in the opposite direction), then it's part of his shading pattern. Shading down the spine is called a "trace".

The actual rhodesian ridgeback trait is due to something else entirely - those are just basically cowlicks. :)
