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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Annual cost of owning a Miniature Pinscher puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Miniature Pinschers true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Is a Min Pin a good choice for a senior?

1 Comment


In short, yes. The Miniature Pinscher is a lively, loyal, sweet breed of dog that bonds very deeply to their owner. For a senior, it is a great size of dog to take care of and have as a companion. However, I would suggest that a senior get a dog that has finished a breeding program or is a rescue of some sort and is an adult. Puppies are a ton of work and not all seniors can handle that for months on end. An adult or even a senior Min-Pin will still bond over time.

I used to have a Doberman. He ate my sofa. How do I train a min pin not to chew on furniture? Thanks Dave



First things first, a tired dog is a good dog. Make sure your Min Pin has at least 1 hour of exercise a day. A dog will chew because they are bored, anxious, upset, ect. If the dog is tired, then he/she will not have these feelings as deep and will be less likely to chew on your furniture. Second, get lots of toys of different sizes, shapes, textures for your dog to chew on. Antlers, squeaky toys, rubber toys, rope toys, and Kongs are great to encourage your dog to chew on things he/she is allowed to chew on. Praise your dog every time you see them chewing on one of their toys. Third, a bittering spray that you can purchase at any pet store is the best way to discourage chewing items you do not want to be chewed. Spray the furniture around the height of the dog and let dry. The bitter taste will discourage your dog from chewing on the item because it tastes gross. Fill kongs and other toys with peanut butter (xylitol free), wet dog food or other yummys things and put them in the freezer. Give them to your dog when you go to leave, this is a great snack and way to keep your dog cool throughout the day or night. It will also encourage lots of positive chewing on toys he/she is allowed to chew on.


My min pin never chewed any furniture or items that weren't his. The best dog ever!

Anonymous asked:
What are the color outcomes when mixing colors of the Miniature Pinscher breed?



The AKC and other kennel clubs only allow three colors for the Miniature Pinscher breed; clear red, stag red, and black/tan. The differences between the clear and stag red is the hardiness or richness of the red in the dogs coat. Any other coloration such as brown/tan, tan, ect; are not accepted by the AKC and would be disqualified for showing.


It depends. We have bred chocolates and blacks and came up with all 3 color combinations.

I currently live in the uk, and I'm finding it hard to find information on how to get a pup shipped. Could anyone point me in the right direction or give an estimate price for shipping over seas?

1 Comment


The best way to figure out how much it would cost for a pup to be shipped to you is to contact a potential breeder. One that has shipped over-sea's before. Or you can look at an international airline and see what their prices are for shipping. When I import puppies or dogs, it costs an average of $400.00 - $500.00. Then there are import fee's that range from $300.00 -$700.00 depending on which airline you use.

Anonymous asked:
I had a teacup minipin for 12 years +/-. She died 3 years ago and I am still crying. How do I know if a minipin is a teacup or not? People sell them but there are surprises when they start to grow. And once you fall in love, you can't give it back!

1 Comment


There is actually no such thing as a Teacup Miniature Pinscher, it is a word that some breeders will call their puppies to say that their dogs grow up on the smaller end of the scale of the breed standard and make them more desirable. What you are looking for is for a breeder that breeds for their Min Pins to be on the smaller end of the breed standard.
