The Miniature Pinscher is listed alongside breeds such as Doberman, The German Pinscher and the Austrian Pinscher. It is not clear when the breed originated but it is thought to be at least 200 years old as this was when the first factual documentation of the 'min pin' was discovered. Historical evidence does not suggest that the breed is older.
The Miniature Pinscher is named as the 'King of Toys' and did you know that 3 or more Miniatures is known as a gang?
As a pet, the Miniature Pinscher is a very lively dog and very intelligent, fitting into most homes with ease, but does need a strong willed owner to maintain dominance.
Daily walks are necessary to prevent other behavioural problems such as Small Dog Syndrome, which is really smaller breeds that have an attitude problem. This can be dealt with before it occurs with good steady training, exercises and other physical tasks. Small dogs with an attitude can be as destructive and aggressive as a larger dog.
