2009 Miniature Schnauzer Sire Survey

Taking the pedigrees of the 81 dogs listed in the 2009 Schnauzer Shorts Stud Register, I've created pie charts to illustrate the share of the gene pool being taken up by certain tail-male ancestors. I chose those dogs who are currently forming their own secondary sire lines, and the notable super sires of the past whose names we should all recognize.

The second chart groups these secondary branches into the major branches of Display sons: Ruffian (divided into Sky Rocket's Upswing and Uproar), Delegate (all lines pass through Penlan Paragon), Tribute (Ruedesheim's Bonus) - plus the single non-Display male line from the black import, Jovinus Rodin Of Anfiger.

Diplomat does not show up at all. That's a little alarming, in my opinion.

Of course, there are other stud dogs out there who are not advertised in Schnauzer Shorts, so this is by no means a "scientific" survey of the breed. But it does provide a useful snapshot into what is going on in our sire lines, and indicates that if you've got a decent Delegate, Tribute or Diplomat branch dog out there, it's time to get busy and get some of his sons on the ground and into the ring.

By way of comparison - how things looked in 1970.
