OUR DOGS CARRY FOR THESE COLORS

What is the Difference between Liver and Chocolate?
They are the same. The word "Liver" just means Chocolate.
So a "Liver schnauzer" and a "Chocolate Schnauzer" are the same. Puppies have to be registered Liver. Liver Schnauzers are basically a brown version of a Black Schnauzer. They are born with solid brown bodies. Some have white on their chin, chest and on their toes. They have brown OR green eyes, chocolate pads and nose.
