The Miniature Pinscher is a dog that looks like a smaller version of the Doberman Pinscher breed. However, the two breeds are unrelated, and, in fact, the Miniature Pinscher breed is older than the Doberman Pinscher. The Miniature Pinscher is a hardy little fellow who is proud and courageous. He is loyal, spirited and alert with high energy, intelligent, lively and brave. They are generally good with other pets and children. Typically Miniature Pinschers weigh 8-12 pounds and stand 10-12 inches tall at the shoulders. If these sharp looking little guys are your thing, ask TLC Kennel what variety of colors they may have available in the Miniature Pinscher.
