The Miniature Pinscher, or Min Pin as they are more commonly known, originated in Germany many years before the Doberman Pinscher, which they are NOT related to. The word Pinscher means Terrier in German and was developed to hunt rats in barnyards. The coat of a Min Pin is short and very easy to groom. Colors are red, stag-red (which is specks of black), black and rust/tan, chocolate and rust/tan. This little dog has a unique high-stepping gait called a hackney-like gait. Ranging in size from 10 to 12 inches tall at the withers, this fiery little dog would be happiest with a family that treats him as if he is a standard sized dog. They are independent thinkers, but make no mistake, while they can be stubborn, they are also highly intelligent. The AKC recognized the Min Pin in the Toy Group in 1925 where they are known as The king of toys .
