The Black Standard
There are two colour varieties allowed in the Standard
Schnauzer, Pepper & Salt and the Black. In North America the two
colours are exhibited and judged together and the two colours may be bred
The black should be of solid, clear coloration with no fading to grey. Some reddening from sun exposure may occasionally be seen. I find that their is a large portion of the Blacks whose colour fades to a gun-metal black/grey with time. Clippering the coat, opposed to hand-stripping increases the fading. I haven't found away to accurately tell which pups in a litter will fade more then others as the age. Having a white spot on the chest or feet does NOT seem to indicate the pups colour will fade from clear black to gun-metal black.
Blacks currently in
our breeding program are Hexe,
Amina, Hickstead and
Sam.We will produce one or
two black litters yearly.
