About the Austrian Pinscher
Austrian Pinschers are assertive, attentive, lively and playful dogs that are especially devoted and friendly to people they know. Distrustful of strangers and incorruptible as guard dogs, they have little in the way of a hunting instinct, as their main task has been protecting people and property for a very long time.
The breed has always been used to herd livestock, although they also perform guard duties with great energy and poise. Austrian Pinschers are stocky, medium-sized dogs. While clearly conforming to the Pinscher type, they differ from their German cousins when it comes to hair, coat color and proportions.
