History [ edit ]

The Miniature Pinscher is part of the larger German Pinscher family, which contained both large and small varieties of breeds, and it´s not, as it is commonly thought, a miniature version of the Doberman. In fact, this one only appears a couple of centuries later. It´s also defended by some German researchers that there´s some Dachshund and Italian Greyhound blood in this small animal.

The word "Pinscher" means "terrier" in German and he is also known in it´s country of origin as the “Zwergpinscher”.

This breed was one of the first’s rat predator ones, but nowadays, despite their maintenance of those instincts, they are used as companion dogs.
