Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed

The Miniature Pinscher, also known as MinPin has been called the "King of the Toy." He is high-strung, fearless, intelligent, alert, easy to look after, and a wonderful house dog. He is a great pet that is ideal for the apartment dwellers, just keep in mind that he can be very noisy. He can be a dominant and temperamental breed. He has a compact and muscular body with ears that are either cropped or uncropped, a docked tail, and a very short, glossy, and shedding coat. He also has an attractive hackney gait that runs along like a graceful little horse.

Size: This breed stands at about 10-12in at the shoulder and weighs about 8-12lb.

History and origin: The Miniature Pinscher has been around since the early 19th century. Originated from Germany, this breed is not a miniature Doberman but is actually a separate breed with terrier beginnings. Some believe that the Italian Greyhound and the Dachshund contributed to its make-up. This breed achieved his pedigree status by the Pinscher-Schnauzer Club in 1895. Once used as a ratter, he is now a wonderful companion dog.

Feeding: Recommended feeding for the Miniature Pinscher is about 1/2 can of a branded meaty product (13.3oz size) with equal amount of biscuit added or 1-1 1/2 cupfuls of high-quality dry food.

Exercise: The MinPin needs a lot of exercise and will be happy to do it himself in a spacious yard or escort his owner on a long walk or run.

Grooming: This breed has a coat that requires almost no maintenance, although a regular brush and rub down with chamois leather will keep it clean and shiny.
