Miniature Pinscher

Unlike many other Toy breeds the Miniature Pinscher was not originally bred as a lap or companion dog, instead he earned his living controlling rats and other vermin around the home, an instinctive talent he retains to this day.

Developed in Germany from the larger smooth haired Pinscher, the Miniature Pinscher is a spirited character, full of confidence, active and independent who will not hesitate to take up a challenge from another dog and thinks nothing of attacking  a rat which is bigger that he is.

A devoted and affectionate companion to his master, the dynamic Miniature Pinscher is an excellent and alert watchdog, most certainly a big bold dog wrapped up in a little dog body.
