Miniature Pinschers are not actually related to Doberman Pinschers, who they not only share a name with, but bear a striking resemblance to. Miniature Pinschers were created from a mix of various terriers and the German Pinscher. Some also speculate that Italian Greyhound bloodlines are also responsible for the Miniature Pinscher.

"MinPins," as enthusiasts like to call them, were originally bred in Germany to hunt rats in horse stables, but eventually evolved into house pets. As a companion dog, Miniature Pinschers are fiercely loyal to their families and guarded around strangers. They develop strong bonds, hold grudges and reward their families with lots of love.

Miniature Pinschers are also extremely demanding. If you are looking into finding a MinPin for your home, you should know that he or she would demand a certain amount of love, exercise and respect from you. Be prepared to devote a lot of time and attention to your Miniature Pinscher.

Finding a Miniature Pinscher Breeder

Don’t be surprised or offended if the breeders you contact to get your Miniature Pinscher ask a lot of questions about you, your family and your home. Some breeders even have pages-long questionnaires that they give to anyone looking to adopt one of their dogs. This is a sign of a responsible breeder that wants to know everything they can about the people that are looking at their dogs. Knowing that a breeder cares that much about their dogs should be reassuring.
