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 California?

California’s dog lovers can rejoice – the state goes above and beyond in many areas of animal rights and care for our furry friends.

California loves dogs!

California’s dog-friendliness is clear right out of the gates when we look at their pet population. Californians own the most dogs of any state in the U.S., with a little over 40% of homes housing a canine friend. And of the 264 shelters in the state, 118 are no-kill shelters.


California has also enacted plenty of animal welfare laws to guard against people leaving pets in cars or abusing their pets. The state limits owners to four dogs per household to ensure all pups get the attention and care that they need. California is also the only state where pet insurance is mandatory. 


A study by WalletHub, the consumer finance site, found that 17 of the top 100 most dog-friendly cities in the country are located in California. They measured dog-friendliness by examining important things like pet-care and veterinary care costs, walkability, percentage of pet-friendly apartments, and animal welfare laws.


Safewise conducted a similar study and ranked California as the sixth most dog-friendly state in the country, while Pawsafe ranks CA as the 26th most dog-friendly state. Both sites are trusted in the pet-loving community. 

Dog-friendly spots to go in California

With so much to offer as a state, there are unsurprisingly plenty of awesome dog-friendly spots across California. One of the state’s main attractions is the number of dog-friendly beaches. From San Diego to all the way up the North Coast, many beaches are open to dogs to play and run through the sand.


California is also home to plenty of parks, restaurants, and other areas and activities for you to enjoy with your pups. According to a Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, San Francisco has the fifth-highest number of dog parks per city by capita, with four dog parks per 100,000 residents. Bakersfield, Fremont, Long Beach, and Chula Vista also ranked in the top 25 for the most dog parks. 


There are fewer parks in the Los Angeles area, with only 13 parks for the four million-plus residents. Of these parks, eight of them are off-leash parks.

Any areas for improvement?

The main area of improvement for California is dog-friendly housing. California offers a fairly average percentage of pet-friendly rentals. Not to worry – you’ll still find a place for you and your pup, but you should plan to spend a little more time in your search.
