The Miniature Pinscher, or Min Pin, is a small, short-coated, compact breed belonging to the Toy Group. Allowed colors for Min Pins include Red, Stag-Red, Black and Rust/Tan, and Chocolate and Rust/Tan. Despite their similar appearance, Miniature Pinschers are not bred-down miniature Doberman Pinschers. In fact, the Miniature Pinscher predates the Doberman by many years. Min Pins are alert, active, fearless, and naturally inquisitive. When moving, they are further distinguished by their unique “hackney-like” gait. A big dog in a small dog package, they have deservedly earned the title, “The King Of Toys”.
