The King of the Toys
The Miniature Pinscher is one of the smallest dogs around. They were originally bred to catch rats in stables, in Germany. The Miniature Pinscher was dubbed “The king of toys” because of their distinctly small size and their larger than life personality.
Being very curious dogs, it is essential to make sure that your Min Pin is in a secure area when they are left alone. These dogs are known for being able to escape from their secured areas if they aren’t secured properly. They will essentially investigate the entire area to find a spot to squeeze through.
The Miniature Pinscher make great watchdogs because of their alertness but they make ever better companions to their families. With these dogs being small in size and high in energy, they are very much like toddlers and need constant supervision.
This breed fits wonderful into families and tend to be goofballs around their family members to be the centre of attention. If you are looking to add a Miniature Pinscher to your home and you have a toddler, then it is not recommended to get this pooch as they are very much like a toddler themselves.
