What are Salt and Pepper Schnauzers

Salt and pepper schnauzers are born with banded hairs and turn silver as adults.  If you aren’t familiar with “banded hairs” that just means that each piece of their hair has 3 shades of color on it instead of just one solid color.  Salt and pepper schnauzers vary in their birth color. They can be born so dark they look like black & silver schnauzers. These are called “Dark Salt & Peppers” and they usually turn into like a dark charcoal grey as adults. Yet on the other end of the spectrum you have salt and peppers that are born so light they almost appear white as adults. These are often referred to as “platinum silvers schnauzers.” 

 

Are Salt and Pepper Schnauzers and Silver Schnauzers the Same? 

Yes, absolutely. the phrase silver schnauzer is just a nickname for a salt and pepper schnauzer because all salt and pepper schnauzers will turn silver/ gray.

NEWBORN Salt & Pepper puppies start out as the color of a brown paper bag….

Then when you shave them, you can see all that new silver hair growing in and completely replacing the brown hair. (some dark, others light)

Raine is the lightest shade of salt and pepper you can get. It’s almost a shimmery white silver. It’s called “platinum silver” but look how dark she was as a newborn. Pretty incredible how these salt and peppers transform.
