These dachshund puppies are undoubtedly cute, don't you agree? Although I favor black and tans (our Duke and our granddawg Shadow are both such), all of them are lovable, and I know people who prefer the long-haired variety or the wire-haired type.
I like the smooth coat because it is easy to care for and doesn't shed a lot. I've seen beautiful cream, gray, brown, and mixed color dachshunds that I would just love to hug! No matter what color or coat they have, I've found that all dachshunds have those same facial expressions--they know how to look pitiful, happy, perplexed, and cute.
The black-and-tan doxie in the picture looks a lot like Duke did as a puppy. Below are a couple of photos of him; the first one is at eight weeks when we first brought him home, and the second is a few weeks later (I believe he was three months old):
