Miniature Pinscher Dogs
Miniature Pinschers are lively and vigorous dogs that need plenty of exercise and activity. Endlessly curious, they love to learn and can pick up commands quickly. To make up for their size, they often stand on their hind legs when trying to look at things through the fence or when greeting people.
What They Are Like to Live With
Their intense curiosity can also encourage them to steal small objects and chew them. Give them toys that satisfy this inquisitiveness and they’ll be very grateful.
Miniature Pinschers don’t need an excessive amount of training, but they should not be spoiled. Too much pandering can make them bossy. A firm but loving hand is needed to keep their egos in check.
The Miniature Pinscher , in spite of its looks, is not a miniature version of the Doberman Pinscher—it is in fact the older breed. Their resemblance could come from the fact that both of these breeds were derived from the German Pinscher. Miniature Pinschers were developed hundreds of years ago to help farmers keep away rats. They were relatively unknown in the U.S. until 1925, when the AKC first registered them as a Toy. Their name was officially changed to Miniature Pinscher in 1972.The Look of a Miniature Pinscher
Miniature Pinschers have sleek, sturdy and compact frames. Their narrow heads have flat skulls, strong muzzles, oval eyes and erect ears. They have arched necks that blend into the shoulders, well-muscled bodies, straight legs and erect tails. Their short, easily groomed coats usually come in brown, red and black & tan.
