Miniature Pinscher Information

Miniature PinscherVigorous and fun loving, the Miniature Pinscher stands no more than 12.5 inches in the shoulder but packs a lot of sturdy muscle into its small frame. The breed sticks out for its high-stepping walk, not unlike a horse on the trot! Its smooth coat comes in a variety of colors and combinations including red, black, tan, fawn, chocolate and blue.

While diminutive in size, the Miniature Pinscher is big in personality. It’s a fearless, proud breed with an alertness that makes him a great watchdog. This is a great breed for those living in apartments, townhouses or smaller homes!
