|I've heard of, and though I don't like it, seen many different colors of Schnauzer. There are only three proper colors as far as I know, black, salt and pepper, and black and silver (I might be mistaken about this last one, but I know there are three).
The thing is that once you start shaving a Schnauzer there's no telling what color it might end up. Salt and pepper ones can become all sorts of gray and silver while black ones I think often end up with hits of red or gray.
I also know there are some breeders, though I don't know how good they are (I've seen pictures of what they're breeding and there's something very off about the dogs based on what little I know) and they've got all sorts of crazy colors going on like tan, cream, black and white, brown, brown and white, white, red and I think a few other odd ones. I don't know if these people are breeding the right way though, they might just be looking to make dogs that look nice enough to sell without really caring for if the dogs are quality animals or not.
To me a 'blue' dog sounds like the result of the color of the coat after shaving since it brings all sorts of hues that aren't visible otherwise.
