The dapple pattern is beautiful in dachshunds and is called "merle" in other breeds.  Because no two are ever identical in pattern,  you will have a very unique dog if you choose a dapple for your lifetime companion. As beautiful as they are, precaution must be taken when breeding them.

When bred together, two dapple dogs will produce double dapple puppies. Double dapple puppies/dogs are known for having many genetic and long-term health issues. If you are interested in adopting a dapple puppy, please do your research to become aware of these problems and always feel free to ask us any questios.

Although some breeders have produced gorgeous double dapples that became AKC champions in the past, many double dapples end up with blindness, deafness, missing eyes, and a variety of tragic defects. BrightStar Cherokee DoxieTribe discourages the practice of producing "Double Dapples".  ALWAYS BE INFORMED AND PLEASE INFORM OTHERS!

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A PUPPY FROM A PUPPY MILL OR PET STORE (VERY OFTEN COME FROM PUPPY MILLS). Doing this just encourages these people to keep producing poor quality dogs with health issues, poor early upbringings, and worse. The majority of our puppies are sold as pets with out breeding rights. We only breed to produce our next show potential puppy. Those are always pets first & foremost, but are produced to perpetuate the breed standard. IF YOU DO NOT FIND THE PUPPY YOU SEEK HERE AT BRIGHTSTAR CHEROKEE DOXIETRIBE, SAVE THE LIFE OF A DOG AT YOUR LOCAL SHELTER OR  ADOPT ONE FROM A LOCAL RESCUE GROUP. If you can not find one there, PLEASE CHECK WITH OTHER REPUTABLE BREEDERS, many of whom are located  on my "links" page.
BrightStar Cherokee DoxieTribe is able to offer high quality puppies for show, breeding and pet homes. Stud selection is subject to change prior to the actual breedings listed.
Pick of the litter and other show potential puppies will either remain here, or will only be placed with a show contract on  a co-ownership.
