ee cream dachshund
clear cream Dachshund

Eclair is what is called a Clear Cream or an ee Cream. Unlike a
Cream  (who is born a charcoal color and lightens up eventually to a
cream) an ee cream is born a light buttery cream color and lightens up to a
pretty cream color. Some breeders try and claim to have clear cream
puppies but they are actually a clear red (ee red); they start out creamy-red
as puppies and darken into a light red color as adults. If BOTH parents do
not carry the cream gene, and the puppy is born a light cream color, the
puppy will not genetically be a true Cream.

Cream Dachshunds that are born charcoal colored and lighten up to cream
or shaded cream (with some black shading) are STILL true Creams. The
original English Cream (which originated in England, per it's name) is not
smooth hair. Some breeders offer smooth haired creams that do stay
cream as adults but they are not to the original standards of an English

PLEASE do your research before you spend a lot of money on a supposed
English Cream Dachshund!! Check pictures of BOTH parents and check
their 5 Generation AKC Pedigrees and adult pictures of BOTH sets of
grandparents. It would be so disappointing to be mislead into thinking you
were buying something you were not.

I would be more than happy to go over this with you on the phone. Please
do not hesitate to ask me any questions regarding the genetics and false
claims some breeders make. There are plenty of wonderful websites that
have more detailed information on the real cream dachshund that
originated in England. I would love to share those with you.

I have plenty more genetic resources. Please
email me for further
research. Thanks! ~Virginia

Eclair has been spayed and placed in a wonderful companion home with
her daughter. She often visits and I am able to beg for babysitting time for
her. She is very loving but I decided I needed to move in a different
direction for conformation shows. However, she has always been an avid
hunter and still loves  Earthdog competitions.
