What would a yorkie/dachshund mix look like?
  • Anyone have any idea? My sister in law is getting one and I haven't ever seen that kind of mix before. The breeds look like they wouldn't be well suited together though.
  • Depending on the roll of the genetic dice, it could vary greatly. She might get soemthing that looks like a long, low-slung Yorkie,  a silver and cream Dacshund, a furry puffball in any number of colors...well, you get the idea!
  • It'd look like this I guess...ermm...not my cup of tea

  • That first one isn't very pretty, but some of the other ones are. The way its being described to me is 2/3 Yorkie and 1/3 dachshund. The mom is purebred, but we think the dad is a yorkie/dachsund mix. She said it looked just  like a yorkie puppy looks except she said it was kind of a rusty red color instead of black, but that the face still had the lighter blond color. I get to go see it tonight though, so, I guess I'll find out then. Thanks though, I didn't think that would be a common enough mix to be on any website.
  • With the designer craze I'm not surprised to see so many in pics lol.
     
    I just don't see why one wouldn't get a Longcoated Dachs or Wire Dachs, which the other resemble in varying degrees (cept perhaps they aren't as cute)...but hey...go figure!
     
    Sounds like a red tri...why did they think the dad was mixed? Some Dachs have wire coats?
  • sorry, but I have to say it - all of those dogs are adorible! I also wondered what that mix would look like.
  • If I had one of those I would totally name it Dorkie  [&:]   I'm horrible.
  • Beagles--I didn't actually get to meet the parents of the puppy. But my sister-in-law said as best as they knew, the dad was a yorkie/dach. I'm not really sure. My dog DEFINITELY has dachshund in him..he barely has any Yorkie features at all...his snout is shorter and wider than a purebred dach. and his legs are a little longer than a purebred, i think..but thats it! other than that, everyone thinks hes just a wirehaired dach.
  • The nose isn't a good indicator at his age. Dachshunds take a long time to develop their long nose, and as young pups, they're nose is very short and wider than it will be as an adult. At about 6 months or so of age is when your pup's nose will be as long as it's going to get. As far as height goes, not all Dachshunds have short stubby legs. In fact, they aren't supposed to have really short legs. Conformation breeders did that to them. In germany, Dachshunds all have longer legs than they do in North America. In the pictures you posted a while ago of him looks like a purebred, wirehaired Dachsie. It is possible that he may be mixed with Yorkie, but I think he is definitely mostly Dachshund. It could also be that the owners of the two parents had a wirehaired and didn't even kow that's what he was. You'd be surprised at just how many people get a wire or long haired Dachshund and think they're mixed with Yorkie or a spaniel. It'll be interesting to see what he'll look like as he grows!
  • Oh, well I didn't know that about his nose, but I do know for a fact that he is at least half yorkie. The people I got it from own the mom. It wasn't an on purpose breeding. Thats why they just gave the puppies away. I thought it would be better to take it and be responsible, than have him end up in the wrong hands. But thank you for the information! I'll watch his nose and see if it changes shape any of the next couple months. [:D]
