Miniature Pinscher Dogs
Lamb Chop Squeaker
Marvin the Moose
Temperament And Traits:Miniature Pinscher dogs are a fearless and intelligent breed that learns quickly and are very good watchdogs, but they can be barkers. For this reason, it is wise to train them to be quiet at your command and understand that not every sound is a threat or an intruder!
The Min Pin is not your typical toy dog that is waiting to be pampered - they are feisty and confident and will rule the roost if you don't establish your leadership from the get-go.
On the other hand, they are a very loving and devoted dog with a
lively spirit, and make excellent, as well as entertaining, pets. The Min Pins also are ideal show
dogs as they are natural performers and enjoy being the center of attention.
Appearance And Coat CareHeight: 10-12-1/2 inches
Weight: 8-10 pounds
Coat Colors: black/tan, chocolate/tan and stag red.
The coat is smooth and sheds little. Grooming is easily handled by wiping down with a dog cloth and brushing about once or twice a week.
This breed is sensitive to the cold, so dog coats or sweaters are a good idea on cooler days.
Activity Level:They enjoy - and should be given plenty of exercise even though they are quite active around the house. A large area where they can safely run freely will be very much appreciated, or a substantial regular walk.
Space Needs:The Min Pin will adapt easily to either house or apartment, but if you live in the latter, it will work out much better if your dog has learned the "quiet" command.
Children :Miniature Pinscher dogs are not at ease around young children and they can be snappy if pestered, best with children over the age of 11, who can be sensitive toward pets. As always the best policy, if you have children, is to make sure an adult supervises their activities with pets.
Elderly:The Miniature Pinscher is a very protective breed that makes a devoted companion to the elderly providing he has a place where he can run freely or someone is available to take him out for daily exercise.
