Miniature Pinscher

Miniature Pinscher


Height: 10-12 inches

Weight: 8-10 lbs.

Life Span: 13-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
The miniature pinscher, or "minpin," is a spirited, sometimes stubborn dog that needs an experienced owner-handler. It does well in obedience training if started early, especially important because of its tendency to bark excessively.

Some minpins get along with children, but others can be nasty. They can also be suspicious of strangers and aggressive with other dogs.

Appearance
The minpin's coat is smooth, short, straight, and lustrous. Coat color is red, stag red, black with sharply defined rust-red markings, or chocolate with red-rust markings.

The minpin has a distinctive gait--a high-stepping, forward-reaching, free and easy prance.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Miniature pinschers need only a quick weekly brushing. They have a great deal of energy and need several short vigorous walks a day to relax them.

Origins
The miniature pinscher originated in 18th-century Germany, where it was used to control rats. Today this bold little dog, reminiscent of a miniature Doberman, is kept strictly as a companion.

Special Alerts
The miniature pinscher is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners.

Breed-related health concerns: Legg-Perthes disease, skin problems, progressive retinal atrophy.
