Miniature Pinscher  


Packing a ton of personality and punch into a small package, the Miniature Pinscher is a zesty addition to any household. “Pinscher” is German for “Terrier” and this moniker is well-placed. They live their lives head-on, boldly exploring their world, protecting their homes and dear ones, and prancing confidently through their days. This breed has been valued as a barnyard ratter in Germany for centuries and includes the Dachshund, shorthaired German Pinscher, and Italian Greyhound in its family tree. Their intelligence, independent character, and enthusiasm endears them to families who enjoy such an interactive companion. They are happy to live almost anywhere as long as they get their daily walk and lots of loving attention. Their shorts coats require little care other than occasional brushing and bathing.
