    My Appenzeller Spitzhauben has a weird looking beak. I used warm water on a q-tip and it has a lot of brown residue. Is this normal for this breed? 20180423_232217.jpg

    YES NORMAL!!! Big nostrils normal, coloration normal, NOT TO WORRY! The big nostrils may cause it to sneeze more often than other breeds too, congrats on your Spitzhauben! There's a Spitzhauben thread you might like to check out, lots of pics....
