MINIATURE PINSCHER APPEARANCE:
Typically, the Minpin stands between 25 and 30 cm (10 and 12.5 in) at the withers, give or take a bit depending on the breed standard. Its weight is about 2.3 to about 4.5 kg (5 to 10 lb).

The coat colors, according to most breed standards, are red, stag-red, red-brown, dark-red brown, and black with tan or reddish/reddish-brown markings. The coat should be short and smooth.

A Minpin frequently has a docked tail and cropped ears, although this is becoming a somewhat controversial practice, especially outside the United States.

MINIATURE PINSCHER HISTORY:
Although appearing similar to the Doberman Pinscher, the Minpin is not a "Miniature Doberman". Rather, the breed is believed to be older. Similarities between the two may result from a common genetic relation to the German Pinscher. Some genetic stock may have been contributed by the Italian Greyhound and the Dachshund. The source of confustion regarding the relationship between the Doberman and the Miniature Pinscher may have been the result of a Miniature Pinscher breed standard from the 1930s, which basically stated that the breed should appear as a Doberman in miniature.

MINIATURE PINSCHER HEALTH:


MINIATURE PINSCHER TEMPERAMENT:
Dogs, like people, have a wide range of personalities. Although the same is true for Minpins, members of the breed generally share some personality traits. Minpins, by their nature, are not generally timid, calm "lap dogs." Rather, they have an energetic spirit and curious nature. Although small, a Minpin generally makes a good watchdog, as the breed is eager to sound the alarm when unfamiliar people and creatures appear in or around the home.
