The Miniature Pinscher, or the “Min Pin,” is a spirited toy breed with personality. Weighing 8-10 pounds, Min Pins have a sleek, sturdy build and alert expression. Originating in Germany to hunt vermin, Min Pins are active, curious dogs requiring plenty of play and exercise. They are fearless watchdogs who bond closely with their families. Min Pins thrive on training activities and interactive games that engage their energetic nature. Their shorthaired coat needs little grooming. With proper attention to their exercise and mental stimulation needs, Miniature Pinschers make lively, devoted small companions.
