MINIATURE SCHNAUZER COLORS
Again, whites are exactly what they sound like. They are born white and will remain white throughout their lives. They are not born cream or some other color and then turn white. They are not albino, nor is it a defective gene. The white color is not recognized as a show color by the AMSC, but it is a registerable color within AKC and can be shown in the Internaional shows. When registering a White (or any other non-traditional color), a front view and side view picture must be sent to AKC along with the registration papers. (This is a rule set up by the AMSC, new colors of Miniature Schnauzers have cropped up and have become quite popular. Most of them are a result of recessive genes and, at times, are quite difficult to produce. Due to their "different" look, breeders strive to produce them because the public is always looking for that unique puppy that won't look like all the other dogs down the street. As a result, supply and demand have made these puppies more expensive.
These "rare colors," as some would call them, include: Chocolate (Liver), Chocolate Parti (Liver Parti), Liver and Tan, Liver Pepper, White Chocolate, Black Parti, Salt and Pepper Parti, and Black and Silver Parti.
THE QUALITY OF THE
PUPPY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE A DOG OF A DIFFERENT COLOR DOESN'T MEAN THEY CAN'T BE REGISTERED. IF THE PARENTS ARE AKC THE PUPS CAN BE AKC ALSO. DOGS OF A DIFFERENT COLOR ARE STILL PUREBRED MINIATURE SCHNAUZERS. THERE ARE ONLY 3 COLORS THAT AKC WILL LET INTO THE RING TO SHOW CONFORMATION. THOSE ARE, BLACK, BLACK N SILVER, SALT N PEPPER.
BUT THE UNIQUE COLORED DOGS CAN SHOW IN OBEDIENCE & AGILITY.
