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!
