Miniature Pinscher

PuppySpot was AMAZING.. I selected Jack early on (previously called Logan) I corresponded with Tommy who was so kind helpful and knowledgeable. Once I made my decision got pictures and videos and updates periodically. My final assessment was with Erin and she was also so helpful. Jack was delivered to my door happy and healthy and he’s just the sweetest dog EVER! Im so happy I took the time to select the best dog for me. Totally worth it and I recommend this website to anyone who will listen.

Miniature Pinscher Characteristics

The Miniature Pinscher is a German breed bred for the hunt! But this hunt is for rodents in homes or stables rather than woods and fields. They make excellent apartment companions because of their size but need frequent, rigorous exercise to truly thrive. Mini Pinschers are very affectionate and enjoy the company of their humans, but still require mental stimulation and structure to live their happiest lives.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

While many people assume the Miniature Pinscher was created by breeding Doberman Pinschers in a selective manner, this is a myth. The Miniature Pinscher is actually a much older breed than the Doberman, and while they look similar, they are two distinctly different breeds. These dogs have a very strong will, and if they're not informed who the alpha male in the house is, they will assume it’s them. Be sure to train accordingly!
 
Standing around 10-12 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 8-11 lbs, the Miniature Pinscher stands with the presence of a much larger animal. They have graceful necks and muscular little torsos and a very confident – almost cocky – air. Their sleek coats are very easy to take care of. Min Pin ears often are cropped, but are quite alert and pointed when left alone; the tail is typically docked. The Min Pin comes in an assortment of coats including red, blue, and brown.
 
Make sure you bring your pup to the vet on a regular basis and have his teeth checked. Like many other small dogs, the Min Pin can suffer from teeth crowding and dental issues. But as long as you stay on top of cleaning and checkups, he should be safe and healthy!
 

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
