Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed Introduction:
Out of all the toy breeds out there, the Miniature Doberman Pinscher doesn’t have any ancestry or lineage associated with its name. Yes they may have the same paint job like their namesake, but the buck stops there. These dogs are as much an individual breed genetically, as well as having greatly different personalities. You can become quite enchanted with this breed once you learn a little bit about them, and know what it takes to have a well mannered Miniature Doberman Pinscher.

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed Temperament:
There are many small dog traits that can develop if your Miniature Pinscher is left untrained, and to have the mentality of an Alpha. Excessive barking is a trait that tends to happen when you don’t teach them when it’s okay to bark as an alert and not towards every person who walks in and out of the room. Yappy dogs will more often than not also bark non stop while you’re gone, and be a nuisance to neighbors if you live in an apartment setting. Simply teaching your Miniature Pinscher some manners, and exposing them to other dogs (under supervision, they can easily be injured by larger dogs) for the socialization will increase the chances of having a calmer more adaptable individual. It is all too easy to let things slide with a smaller dog that you wouldn’t with a larger breed. Too many households allow their little pint sized dogs to be in charge, which ends up either costing the family in the social aspect , or financially with their destructive behavior. Little dogs, like the Miniature Pinscher will need more effort from their owners to maintain the right balance of power within the house. Though most of us treat our dogs like children, they should know their place in the pecking order is second to you.
Most Miniature Pinscher’s will be more one owner oriented. This is just a tendency with toy sized breeds; to call one person their master and not find it necessary to behave the same for everyone. It is not recommended to have the Min Pin without a leash, since they have a high prey drive and often will ignore you completely once they’re onto a scent. They will continually push your boundaries and want to be the boss, but as long as you provide good solid leadership, exercise them at least 1-2 hours a day, as well as give them a balanced diet, the odds are with you to have a well behaved companion.

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed Appearance:
It wouldn’t be the first time that the Miniature Pinscher was thought to be a smaller version of the Doberman Pinscher. The Min Pin has no tracing to that lineage, but did take with it their black and tan mask like markings. These dogs were created by crossing a Dachshund with an Italian greyhound. Two pure breed dogs were used, as is with many newly created breeds, and the result was a smooth, short-haired, hard coated statuesque working breed. The Miniature Pinscher will often be longer bodied than they are legged, but will still have a height of 10-12 inches at the withers. This allows them to find comfortable ball like sleeping positions comfortable.

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed History and Origins:
There is a lot that has been learned about dogs and where they come from with help from our modern techniques and machinery. It is unfortunate that we did not have these modern amenities 200 years ago. Historical documents for the Miniature Pinscher dog breed doesn’t begin to recognize the breed until the 1830′s, while drawings, artifacts, and world renowned paintings reflect that the Miniature Pinscher is a very old breed. With the lack of documentation, the source of when the Miniature Pinscher dog breed was actually established is undetermined. We do know that these dogs were mostly left in the barns and stables to keep the rat populations in check.

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed Mortality:
The Miniature Pinscher has a fragile, petite frame, that puts them at a greater risk than large breed dogs to get broken bones. Great care needs to be given to prevent such painful injuries. Luxating Patella is also a potential ailment that can stem from rough handling. Small children need to be supervised and taught how to properly handle the Miniature Pinscher dog breed. If you are careful enough, you will find that the Miniature Pinscher is fairly healthy, not having any hereditary diseases. Cataracts and blindness can occur later in life. Urinary tract infections are more prone to happen to un-spayed females. The majority of Miniature Pinscher dogs will live into their teens.

Miniature Pinscher Dog Breed Summary:
It is a common misconception that small dogs don’t need as much exercise. The fact is, they actually need the same if not more outdoor exercise to keep their natural chewing and digging behaviors at bay. If you are a laid back easy going type, this dog will have the runs of the roost in no time. In order to successfully raise a calmer individual, you have to have a back bone, because the Miniature Pinscher will test the strength of it. The Miniature Pinscher deserves nothing less than a warm dry place to sleep, an owner with the patience to teach them, and the just right amount of kibble.

    I’ve got a very intelligent Min Pin, Kelly.
    We never sent her for trainnng but she is so smart & well-mannered unlike some other Min Pins I’ve seen. She barks at strangers at the gate but not at family & friends. She’s a great guard dog & companion (she seems to know when you’re having a bad day) and also escorts you if you go to the car parked in the garden if you need to get something, even if its raining! (how loyal). She knows where to poo & pee in the garden and has never done it inside the house, except once when we had to lock her inside the house one afternoon when our fence was being repaired. Even then, she did it at the loo.
    She usually looks at me & smiles when I pet her.

    I have a min pin… she’s my absolute baby!! She’s very intelligent. She sits, lays, stands when ever I tell her to. She will no go out the door unless I say it’s ok. When I feed her she sees me preparing her food and will sit until I say ok..when I say ok she will then go to her dish and eat. The only problem I have with her is she’s a runner! If she’s outside when the gate opens if you do not stand right there she will dart.. take a good run.. visit her friends (I guess lol) then she comes back home.. she knows she’s in trouble so she’ll go straight to her kennel.. unlike anything I’ve ever seen!
