Overview
The Miniature Pinscher, also known as "The King of the Toys" is a feisty little breed with a sense of humor, terrific energy, and is very courageous. This breed is very eager to learn and experience new surroundings. However, if given the chance this energetic fellow will escape from confinement. Usually seen with a docked tail and erect ears, this breed will be sure to steal your heart.
Character
Miniature Pinschers are very loyal, alert, and playful. This breed does require proper socialization as a puppy, as they can be weary of strangers. They are peppy little dogs that enjoy the company of their companions. This breed if properly socialized can do well around children and other pets.
Temperament
This breed needs proper exercise, as they are very inquisitive and vigorous. This breed is recommended for households with only well-behaved children and would do well with other pets if properly socialized. Very headstrong, this dog requires consistency and firm handling otherwise may become somewhat of a tyrant.
Care
Miniature Pinschers have a very spirited personality, which requires energy and patience. A very low maintenance breed when it comes to grooming. Wipe down with a cloth daily to remove excess hair would be sufficient for this short haired and average shedding breed.
Coat
This shorthaired toy breed does not require much maintenance when it comes to the coat. Acceptable colors for this breed are as follows, solid clear red, stag red, Black and Rust, Chocolate and rust. The Miniature Pinscher is most commonly seen in Stag Red and Black and rust, however other colors are available.
Training
As with many toy breeds, this dog can be rather difficult to house train. Consistency is the key to training this sometimes stubborn little dog. This intelligent breed is very eager to learn and if given the proper training, will thrive.
Activity
Definitely an energetic fellow that requires exercise. Good for apartment life, but a regular romp and play would quickly satisfy the curiosity of this breed. A few short walks per day should also be sufficient. This eager little breed is sure to keep your on your toes.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Miniature Pinscher puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Help with housetraining a Miniature Pinscher I recently adopted a one-year old MinPin mix. He's the best dog but I can't deal with the pooping. He poops anywhere and everywhere including his crate and my lap. I take him out very frequently but he never give me any signal that he needs to go. Doesn't mind sleeping in his own poop. I'm at my wits end. Always had big dogs and they were easy to housetrain. I do not free feed and do not feed/water after 5PM. Any suggestions?

If he is not showing you signs, you are either missing the signs or there is something medically wrong. It is best to get him checked out by a vet. If he is deemed healthy, then the next thing you need to do is tether him to you at all times. This way, you can always be there when he does start to show signs. Take him out every 2 hours and throw a party for him when he does his business outside with praise and treats. He will get it.

Get a 2 hour kitchen timer - take the dog out - set the timer and every 2 hours when it dings make the trip outside (*day and night until he is getting the idea). If the dog is having issues with being able to hold it between times then I would recommend you have him looked at by a vet - he may have an intestinal issue that needs to be addressed.

12 to 16 years. Genetics and the dogs environment will also play a big role in the dogs life span.

Best food for a Miniature Pinscher age 11 Her back legs are shaking

2 Comments

A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go! If your dog's back legs are shaking, you need to take the dog to the vet.

A quality meat based dog food made especially for SENIORS. I would check out the leg tremors as there could be a medical issue involved.

They can have. MinPins are predisposed to knee cap issues and hip issues. They can have MPS VI or be carriers of it and most of your good breeders will have their breeding dogs tested and not use one that is a carrier of the disease.

I had one get it stuck in their throat and had to take to vet to get it removed. I would never feed rawhide again.

No - not normally - gas is caused by an intestional issue - I would advise to change the dogs diet and change to something like Lamb and Rice.

Yes there is - minature pinscher's are not considered breed standard however and most registries will not allow you to show them with the absent of Tan/Rust.
