Thread: an all-white dachshund

    an all-white dachshund

    Our rescue group has taken in some interesting looking dachshunds, but I think we have our blue lobster here (one in four million)

    This is Kasper. He is a blind, all-white dachshund and is going to be a sanctuary sweetheart for the Nebraska Dachshund Rescue. He does have some black on his nose, the front of his lips, and the bottoms of his pads are lightly spattered with grey. It's as if he walked onto an ink pad and touched his lips and nose to it.

    The other one in the pic is mine. Her name is Little Thing and she is deaf and blind. Kasper followed her everywhere. Definitely the blind leading the blind!

    Wow, I've never seen such a thing! Very very cute, though. Your dog, is beautiful. Blind and deaf, amazing. Was she born blind (and deaf)?

    the only other white dachshund that I can find online is a youtube clip from Germany (appropriate!) THAT white dachshund is truly all white...pink nose and all.

    My Little Thing was born deaf/blind. She gets around so well, that when we adopted her at 9 months, no one knew she was deaf. It took me a day to figure that out! When four dogs are barking their heads off and Little Thing is curled up and sleeping peacefully....not rocket science!

    I've seen one other white dachshund, somewhat local to us.
    I dont believe she has any vision/hearing issues though (surprisingly). I think she has a black nose.


    Those two are adorable - and Little Thing is SO CUTE!

    I have never seen an all white dachshund. Little Thing and Kasper sound like very good friends. Will they be staying together?

    I tried to take Kasper, but am having serious pancreatitis issues with my Jeau. Kasper arrived at 8pm and Jeau crashed with acute pancreatitis at 3 am. Obviously, stress triggers his chronic pancreatitis to become acute. Jeau is my heart dog, my soul mate. I was on the phone at 7 am to find a new home for the white one. Poor little spud was only here for 11 hours! He has a wonderful home and lots of "brothers and sisters" to follow around.

    They're both adorable.
    We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.

    It is good that Kasper is in a good home and I hope Jeau feels better soon.

    Kasper looks pretty young. Was he a breeder surrender?
