These little dogs love to strut!

The coat of the Miniature Pinscher is short, sleek and smooth. It does shed, but only needs minimal grooming. They are good with older children; do best if raised along with them from puppyhood. The Min Pin truly believes he/she is a big dog. They are quite alert and will sound an alarm bark at the approach of a stranger and/or strange noises.

Wonderful companion animal for singles, elderly, people living in apartments or homes without a yard. The Miniature Pinscher needs to live indoors near its family. They are good with pets but can be very aggressive toward strange dogs. Training: socialization, obedience. The Miniature Pinscher does tend to be more of a one-person dog, but will treat family and friends with affection.
