The Miniature Pinscher
He is the smallest brother of the Doberman, his perfect miniature replica. He not only looks, but has a very similar nature to his larger relative. He is not a lap dog, and he shouldn’t be measured by his size.
He is especially strong in nature, a gritty little dog, who needs to be held strongly, otherwise he will quickly think he is in charge of his owner. Perhaps, he is the best kept indoor dog, because of the feeding costs, and his short hair, which makes him a really clean dog. He does not require large space, but he still remains a "real" dog.
He is balanced and extremely attached to his master. He is indefatigable if it comes to trips, games and agility, he is especially suitable for the latter. The breed is considered one of the most intelligent. He lives an active life, he is recommended for young owners, who can devote much time to him, which he repays with plenty of love.
He is elegant, yet powerfully built, with a height of 25-30 cm and a weight of 4-6 kg. Two color variations are bred in Europe, with black and red markings or solid red. His ears and tail had been cut, but the current standard already provides a natural state.
