Miniature Pinscher - Guide to Miniature Pinschers
Description: The Miniature Pinscher is not, as many believe, a scaled-down version of the Doberman Pinscher. In fact, the Miniature Pinscher evolved well before the Doberman. The breed has existed in Germany for about 300 years as an efficient barnyard ratter. His ancestors most likely include a combination of smaller German smooth-haired pinschers, the Italian Greyhound and the Smooth Dachshund. This pleasing little dog's popularity burgeoned toward the end of the 1800s in Germany, and it acquired other fans throughout England and North America shortly after. The Miniature Pinscher is a rugged little dog that enjoys children and light exercise. He adapts well to his surroundings be they in the city or the country.
Height: The height for a Miniature Pinscher is 10 - 12.5" (25.4 - 31.8cm)
