If you want to buy a beautiful puppy this holiday season, and tie it up with a big red or green Christmas bow, you should know that the most beautiful puppies are also the most rare and most difficult to find. It is not about the breed that makes these puppies rare and expensive; it is their color or coat pattern. Here are some examples, and why they cost so much.
White Golden Cream Retrievers
These beautiful dogs are everything you want in a golden retriever, with something a little extra. Instead of being a dark or medium golden color, or even a light cream color, these pups are white. A white golden retriever puppy breeder spends years trying to get two unrelated dogs to produce the perfect color of pups, and from there has to continue breeding with other known white golden retriever dogs from other breeders.
After all of the time and energy put into getting the perfect "platinum blonde" puppies, these pups do not always come out the exact color the breeders would like. There is often a random genetic pup that is anything but white. The breeder can choose to sell this pup as a standard golden, or give it away to someone who wants white golden bloodlines but not the golden color. That is why these pups cost a little bit more. You cannot control the genetic results perfectly, so you cannot count in six to fourteen pups all coming out white. For more information, contact companies like English Golden Cream Retrievers.
Blue and Tan Brindled Dachshunds
Blue and tan dachshunds are often rumored to be deaf, but that can happen with just about any color of dachshund if one parent has a recessive gene for deafness. Blue and tan dachshunds are very difficult to get, but the most difficult of all colors and coat patterns to get are blue and tan brindled dachshunds. One can imagine that these dogs with this color and coat pattern are something straight out of a fairy land, with their darker stripes and lighter bands of solid color.
If you can find such a pup, you can bet that the breeder will command a very high price indeed, deafness or no. Still, such a cute, funny, fanciful dog would be so unique that you could hardly resist. He or she would look best in silver or red bow as it would highlight the colors in the dog's unique coat.
