About the German Pinscher
German Pinschers are alert, lively, self-confident, and well-balanced. Combine these traits with intelligence and endurance, which German Pinschers have in spades, and you have the ideal family, companion, and guard dog.
The Smooth-haired Pinschers were mostly black with light brown markings, self-colored in shades of brown to red, salt and pepper, or simply grayish blue to black. German Pinschers are medium-sized dogs of square build.
