skyesrocket they are both douple dapples but the bad thing is they carry the merle gene which can cause issues (the merle gene is called the dapple in doxies or the white coloring). My SIL breeds doxies and says she will not do the double dapple anymore because she will not be responsible for bringing lives into this world that have all these issues. I think she is being very responsible for stopping. She offered me Bo about a year ago, he has a little bit of a sight issue other than that hes fine, then she called a few weeks ago about Jojo and asked if I'd give her a good home.

As a fellow owner of a black & tan mini doxie, Nellie age 2 ("Eenie Weenie Nellie Baby") I say welcome! That's one sweet looking and lucky little pup!

We had a horse that was deaf, when it was time for him to come in at night we used a flashlight. It took 2 people to train him. One to lead him up and the other to work the flashlight. When he would get to us we would give him a cookie. It didnt take long til he knew that it meant

Not to be rude, but didn't she know the double dapple causes issues before she bred them?
