Smooth and longhaired dachshund's coats can be red or cream, with or without interspersed dark hairs. They can also have two-colored coats that can be black, chocolate, wild boar, gray or fawn -- Isabella -- with tan or cream markings. The most common colors for wirehaired dachshunds are wild boar, with the variations of red boar and chocolate and tan boar, black and tan or different shades of red. However, the AKC allows wirehaired dogs to be any of the recognized colors. All three coat types can have patterns superimposed over the dominant color. A dapple pattern has patches of a lighter color contrasting with the darker main color. Brindle dachshunds are patterned with black or dark stripes over their entire bodies. Sables are red coats that have a uniform overlay of hairs, which are darker at the tips.
The longhaired dachshund was developed by hunters who wanted dogs with greater protection from the cold. Canine researcher D. Caroline Coile Ph.D., explains in her book, "Barron's Dog Bibles Dachshunds," how smooth dachshunds may have been crossed with spaniels to produce the longhaired variation, or hunters could have bred selectively from smooth dachshunds born with longer hair. Longhaired dachshunds have straight or slightly wavy hair, which is longer on their ears and chests, under their necks, the underside of their bodies and behind their legs. The long hair on their tails forms a flag shape. Their elegant coats don't require trimming, but will need to be brushed twice a week and bathed monthly.
