The Miniature Pinscher is often called “The King of Toys” because of its regal (but tiny) appearance. Min Pins make outstanding companions and adapt well to apartment life, and are one of America’s most popular breeds.
The leggy Miniature Pinscher is known to fans as the ‘King of Toys.’ This proud, fearless, fun-loving toy breed of lustrous coat and a compact, wedge-shaped physique is a true personality dog, known for a high-stepping ‘hackney’ gait.
Min Pins are sturdy, compact dogs standing no more than 12.5 inches at the shoulder. The smooth, shiny coat comes in two shades of solid red, or chocolate-and-rust or black-and-rust. The dark, slightly oval eyes and high-set ears help bring out a self-possessed, ‘big dog’ personality. A distinguishing characteristic is the Min Pin’s high-stepping ‘hackney’ gait, reminiscent of a hackney horse at the trot.
Owning a dog is not just a privilege; it’s a responsibility. They depend on us for, at minimum, food and shelter, and deserve much more. When you take a dog into your life, you need to understand the commitment that dog ownership entails.
