Proud, fun-loving and positively fearless, Miniature Pinschers are pint-sized pups packed with big dog personality. Min Pins are a small, compact dog with a glossy coat. Their head is in proportion to their body and their skull appears flat, tapering forward towards the muzzle. The muzzle should be strong and in proportion to the head.
They have dark, slightly oval eyes and ears that are set high on their skull. The front legs are straight with small, cute, cat-like feet. The Miniature Pinscher is super low maintenance when it comes to grooming, only really needing assistance keeping their coat shiny and healthy during moulting.
Min Pin’s high-stepping “hackney” gait is reminiscent of a hackney horse at the trot, only a billion times smaller.
These dogs are relatively easy to feed, the main thing to remember with the Miniature Pinschers is not to overfeed as they do have a tendency to become overweight.
The Miniature Pinscher's smooth, short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush on a regular basis with a firm bristle brush, and bathe once every two weeks in the warmer months and bathe once a month in the colder months to keep them feeling and smelling spring fresh. It is also recommended to rub them down with a piece of towelling or chamois as this will make them look and feel their best with a glossy, shin coat.
