NO MIN PIN PUPPIES AVAILABLE.
Description: The Miniature Pinscher, also
know as the Min Pin, is a well-balanced, sturdy,
compact little dog that is short-coupled and
smooth-coated. They have short smooth fur that
comes in colors of black, blue, red or
chocolate. They have short naturally erect or
drop ears, and most are often cropped, as is the
tail docked. They resemble tiny Doberman
Pinschers, although entirely unrelated. Min Pins
are dogs who are proud, vigorous and alert. They
have a lot of spirit and pizzazz; a bundle of
energy. They are fun loving extroverts who are
great in the show ring or make clever
companions. Miniature Pinschers do well as a
house dog who are at their best being the family
watchdog. They have a bark that won't
quit when they suspect danger is near, and they
are always looking out for their family.
Miniature Pinschers are not small Dobermans, but
they sure can act like them. They are
protective, robust and confident in nature.
Affectionate and loving with their owners, their
owners are their main protective priority. These
little dogs are usually wary with strangers, and
aggressive with other dogs. Vibrant, vivacious
and perky, they are always on the go for the
person or family who wants to go with them.

noisy dogs, barking at anything unusual. Mini
Pins are perky and upbeat, but can be aggressive
with other dogs and wary around strangers. They
will react to provocation. They are not guard
dogs, however, and would probably only be able
to bite someone's ankle. Although protective,
they are naturally sweet dogs. They are loyal

difficult to train, and very curious. This breed

Country of Origin: Germany
History: Known only to have existed in
Germany for at least about 100 years, Mini Pins
are said to have descending from the German
Pinscher, then crossed with the Italian
Greyhound and Dachshund. The Miniature Pinscher
is not a smaller Doberman, as some may think.
They are not in fact even related. The Miniature
Pinscher has existed before the Doberman. In a
painting that is in the Louvre, Paris, was dated
to be from 1640 A.D., indicates a small Mini-Pin
looking dog. Miniature Pinschers were bred to be
a ratter and a good barking watchdog, that which
they have truly proven themselves to be. In
their native country they are called
Zwergpinscher. "Zwerg" in German means
"dwarf" or "midget". They have also developed
the name Reh Pinscher, which refers to the
little roe deer that live in the Rhineland
forests. In 1890s, the German Pinscher-Schnauzer
Club was formed and pinschers of all sizes were
accepted. The smaller ones became popular, and
soon the world of German Pinschers were breeding
them to be smaller and smaller. The breed
developed and was officially recognized by
Germany in 1870, and the current form of the
breed was developed around 1895. Popularity rose
and then fell with World War I, but dedicated
fanciers took on the breed to increase its
numbers again after the War. It made its way to
America in the 1920s and began showing off its
high stepping gait (called hackney) in the show
ring. In 1929 the Miniature Pinscher Club of
America was formed, and in Britain the breed
grew much slower in popularity. Due to the ear
cropping ban, the breed was not as successful as
it was in America. Also in 1929 was the breed
accepted into the AKC, and breeders had set out
to breed them to have naturally erect ears.
First listed as a Terrier, the Min-Pins'
identity in the AKC soon changed to Toy, and the
breed has since been crowned the "King of Toys".
