History of the Parti Miniature Schnauzer

Origins of a “black and white” Schnauzer

Parti Miniature Schnauzer Puppy – Much has been said about the Parti color Miniature Schnauzer.  While there is much evidence that Parti origins date back to some of the earliest Schnauzer breedings in Germany as detailed by the first

Pinscher Schnauzer Klub (PSK) breed standard written in the 1880’s.  The then written breed standard clearly allowed for a “white and black” colored Miniature Schnauzer as an acceptable color structure.  However, as time passed the the Parti color fell out of favor to such a degree that by the time of the Third Reich in 1933, the Pinscher-Schnauzer Klub outlawed all current and future Parti colored Schnauzer from their registry as undesirable.  Klub members were encouraged to destroy their Parti Schnauzer by whatever means that they were comfortable with.  This separation from the Parti color (and many other “in between colors” within the Schnauzer breed) has been passed along from the PSK to other sister organizations such as the AKC in the U.S.  Currently, the AKC recognizes the Parti color as undoubtedly purebred but continues to disqualify the color from the showring.

Fernweh’s Opinion of Parti Schnauzers

Our opinion here at Fernweh Schnauzers, as Miniature Schnauzer breeeders, seemingly represents a large portion of the country that has grown tired of quantifying a dog’s value based on manmade rules of the AKC and sister registrations acrossed the world.  Dog owners have become increasingly aware that Champion show dogs are bred to win in a showring not necessarily thrive in a home setting.   The attitude and dominance that allows it to thrive in a competition is sometimes not ideal as a pet for a 5 year old child.

In a similar manner, the Parti color structure in no way diminishes its value as a family member.  In contrast, Parti colored Miniature Schnauzers are unique and have a rich history of the classic underdog story that most gravitate to.  While the Parti Miniature Schnauzer might not have a home in an AKC showring, it certainly does here at Fernweh Miniature Schnauzers!  Our commitment is to continue to offer a Parti Schnauzer Puppy for sale to our adopters that are interested.


The Parti Color

So what defines a Parti Colored Miniature Schnauzer Puppy?  Parti is a pattern of white hair on a base color.  Parti means to have a predominant base color broken up by large or small patches of white.  Extending from this definition, there are many different base colors.  Variations of the Parti pattern include: Salt and Pepper Parti, Black Parti, Black and Silver Parti, Liver Parti, Liver/Pepper Parti, and the Liver/Tan Parti.

Common Questions About Parti Schnauzers


Are Parti Schnauzers Rare?

Yes, technically Parti Schnauzer is somewhat rare.  Parti Schnauzers carry a recessive gene that actually patches or breaks up the dog’s original color such as liver or black and silver coat.  Parti is actually a pattern and each Parti Schnauzer can be a different color with a “patching” gene that breaks up color.  Because the Parti gene is recessive the probability producing a Parti Schnauzer is lower than a color like Black and Silver thus making them slightly rare.  As Parti Miniature Schnauzer breeders, we always appreciate when we produce a Parti Miniature Schnauzer because they are a little rare.

Do Parti Schnauzers have specific health problems?

No, fortunately the Parti “patching” gene is not associated with connecting hereditary issues.  Parti Schnauzers do not suffer from excessive health issues and would carry similar health probabilities as mainstream Schnauzer colors such as black.

What is a Parti Schnauzer?

A Parti Schnauzer is a specific coat pattern not a specific color.  A Schnauzer that carries the Parti gene will have patches of White that break up their base color.  A Parti Schnauzer can actually be any Schnauzer color, just with a specific color pattern.  We have produced Liver Parti, Black Parti, Salt and Pepper Parti, etc..
