White schnauzer -does it affect anything besides colour?

The Miniature Schnauzer is a smallest dog in the Schnauzer breed and originated in the mid-to-late 19th Century from Germany. The Miniature Schnauzer is a cross between the Standard Schnauzer and other smaller breeds such as the Poodle. A miniature Schnauzer is a spunky, but aloof dog who does things their own way. They tend to be good guard dogs without the tendency to bite.

I'm wondering if white schnauzers are known for any particular qualities, personality or health wise, or is it purely just colour?

If you're meaning deafness like in some other whites of breeds then no.

I've had 2 whites and personality wise total opposites. They both shared normal schnauzer traits though, love to be with their humans, like to be involved with everything you do, love to chase things, would bark until the cows come home if allowed to, not keen on going in water to name a few.
