About the Miniature Pinscher

Miniature Pinschers are a smaller version of German Pinschers without any signs of dwarfism. These elegant, smooth-haired dogs are fearless and spirited, showing little awareness of their small size.

These dogs develop strong bonds with their owners and will easily settle into homes with single occupants, couples or families with older children.
