Not to mention the Mini Pinscher comes off as a very good guard dog, presenting a brave front in the face of danger. It is easy to see how one would presume the two are related; however, the two breeds were actually developed decades apart, with the Mini Pinscher coming first. In fact, the Pinscher name was eventually dropped from Doberman because so many other breeds were used to create it, the general feeling was that it did not wholly describe or fit the breed. [...]

The Min Pin and its Many Coats of Color

The Miniature Pinscher is most commonly noted for looking like the smaller version of the Doberman. The black and rust color found on the face, legs and rump all nicely corresponds in both breeds.

The issue of cropping ears and docking tails has become a focal point for many dog breeders and owners.

How Much Space Will a Min Pin Need?

Min Pin Mating and Pregnancy

The majority of canine pregnancies that veterinarians see are unplanned events. This comes from having little knowledge of a dog's breeding habits and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. As most responsible owners know, the mating of dogs to breed for profit is a serious business that should be left only to those with in depth knowledge and experience on the matter. [...]

When a Min Pin Turns Out to Be the Wrong Choice

Weird Facts/Did You Know: The Miniature Pinscher

The proud strut of the Min Pin is commonly compared to that of a hackney pony.
