Miniature Pinscher
The Miniature Pinscher reigns as the "King of Toys."
Height: 10 to 12.5 inches at shoulder
Weight: 8 to 11 pounds
Coat: short and sleek
Life span: 10 to 14 years
Breed Group: Companion Dogs
The Miniature Pinscher was originally bred in Germany to hunt vermin, primarily rats, in homes and stables. Many people think that the Miniature Pinscher was developed by breeding Dobermans to progressively smaller sizes, and indeed, the Miniature Pinscher looks similar to a Doberman. However, the Min Pin is a distinct and much older breed. Known as the "King of Toys" for his stately appearance and self-assured attitude, the Miniature Pinscher is a fearless, energetic, and alert companion dog who enjoys the company of his family.
