Most Dachshunds are black with tan markings or a solid reddish-brown in color. They can also have a red, dappled, or brindle pattern. Some may have a limited amount of white on the chest just like this little sweetie has.  Notice the eyebrows, those markings are very common.  

They coat length can be smooth (short) Wire or long.

Grooming the Long coated Dachshunds should be completely brushed and combed at least once or twice a week depending on the activity. The hair between their pads should be trimmed as needed so  as to not get matted.  
All doxies should be groomed every 6-8 weeks. This will ensure to keep their coats healthy and shinny, the ears at that time need to be cleaned inside and the leather part of the ears are sometimes more dirty due to dragging them through the food bowl. Feed the Best  Toenails are then ready to be cut and filed.  

A good shampoo such as Revitalizing Shampoo (botanical infusion of organic rosemary and sage) will enhance the beauty of the doxie coat.
