“ Animal Species: Dogs „
In fact, The Miniature Pinscher has been around for many centuries. They originated in Germany, but have also been bred in the Scandinavian countries for a long time. The Pinscher-Schnauzer Klub, gave the breed its initial standard. The breed continued to become more popular until World War I and then picked up again after 1919 when they began to appear in the United States. My lovely Miniature Pinscher is somewhat like the Doberman on a smaller scale. It has a nature and way about it that reminds you of a much larger dog. He is a valuable watchdog !! A devoted companion, he has great fondness for home. He is well groomed, active, alert and high spirited. Height- 11 inches to 11 1/2 inches at the withers. Weight- 8 to 11 pounds. Coat- short, sheds a little, short, black with tan, brown, red, tan markings.
