Misty is our newest Miniature Schnauzer bred for AKC conformation. She is on the larger end of the Miniature Size. She has beautiful lines and a gorgeous white coat that has thick soft waves when it grows long. Misty's puppies will require regular brushing to keep their coats free of mats.
Misty's disposition is very sweet. She is much quieter than any Schnauzer I have met. Though you may not experience this, as she is not quiet when strangers come to see puppies. She is eager to please and has been a breeze to train.

Update on Dixie:
We have spayed and retired, Dixie, the mother of our past litters. Dixie produced many wonderful puppies and now she is relaxing and being spoiled as a family pet.
About the Genetics of the White Color:
. I have had a few questions about whether White is a defect in the Schnauzer. The white gene does not carry any health defects. The white color in Schnauzers goes back to very early Schnauzer breeding lines. Although the white colored Schnauzer is not allowed in the AKC show ring, AKC does register White Schnauzers and recognize them as pure bred. White Schnauzers have always been allowed to show in the UKC dog shows in Europe.
The white color is not albino. Research has indicated that white and red come from the same gene but whites have a fading gene that hides the red color. I have seen some tinge of red color on young Schnauzer puppies that has grown out with age. Since the large Schnauzer was bred down by crossing it with the Poodle and the Affenpincher in order to get the Miniature size, it is not surprising that the recessive white gene that is found in the poodles, would also have been present in the early breeding lines or the Miniature Schnauzer.
When the White Schnauzer is bred to the Red Poodle the color produced will be shades of red....from creme to dark red. The red color gene is present in all the puppies. But the depth of red is determined by how much the fading gene is present. I have had reds that lighten with age and cremes that have darkened with age. It is an interesting color phenomena....but the shades of apricot are always beautiful!
