I've heard different definitions of what "lemon" is. Puppies that are born almost white certainly aren't rare, it just depends on the bloodlines you are working with. Lucy (the girl in my icon wagging her tail) was one of those.

There are basically two kinds of red & white bassets, those that are born white or almost white (very pale) and have no black in them at all (these are often called lemons), and those that are born with lots of black and the black mostly clears as they mature, but you can still usually find some black in the coat even if it's only on the tips of the hairs (these are often called mahogany).

I've seen some that are very pale at maturity, those I would call lemon. They are no more or less desireable than any other colour.

If you look at the first half of this album you can see how the colour changes from birth in "born white" reds.

Both parents are red & white. They're last year's bunch, born August 22.
