schnauzer beard stains
by: Anonymous

Actually, this works: We rescued a white Schnauzer. Stained beard always. Vet thought allergic to chicken or meat, switched her to Royal Canin Select Protein Adult PR -- RABBIT. Beard has been white ever since. No yucky enzymes, methinks that was the problem. Seriously, within a few days she had a white beard. All the other "cures" seemed like nonsense in comparison.

Why Is My 8 year Schnauzer Fiona hair changing color (?)
by: Juan dlm

She was salt and pepper as a puppy with sparks of light brown on her legs and face. She turned into Silver as an adult dog and now in the area of her head and ears she is turning light brown.
Why would this be happening at this age now (?).

Changing colour
by: Michele

Don't worry.. he sounds like a TRUE ..Pepper and Salt puppy as the grey mingled with light brown is normal.. a white beard ..great. but if you feed him wet food his beard will go stained light brown... which is normal as it's the saliva that does it.. i used to use a white dog shampoo on my later pepper and salt boy's beard and other white parts .. his soft fur on his legs....

Changing colour..
by: Michele

I don't really know but my Rebel 1 ( I'll post a photo of him and Ringo in Stories, shortly ) who was Pepper & Salt colour did have little light brown hairs growing in between the pepper and salt ones ( pepper is of a brownish / black ) ( so I wouldn't worry.. as long as he is a schnauzer.. My Rebel 2 is also 3 years old...but he is Black and Silver...
