Overall a friendly breed, if well socialized from a young age, Min Pins can get along great with other dogs, even in the same household. However, because they were once used as ratters, they are prone to chase after smaller animals, including cats. Miniature Pinschers can get along great with children of an older age.
Though a challenging breed, the Min Pin is also devoted to his family and may make a cuddly, affectionate choice for someone with the time to dedicate to training. The Miniature Pinscher is also known as Min Pin.
The Min Pin is quite smart and tends to respond well to training. Without effective training, the breed can become stubborn and unruly.
The Miniature Pischer, which has an average lifespan of 12 to 16 years, may be prone to some minor problems like Legg-Perthes Disease, patellar luxation, hypothyroidism, Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) VI, and heart defects.
Sometimes called a one-person dog, Miniature Pinschers will usually get along with the entire family, including children—but they can be somewhat defensive and proud, which is not a good mix with very small children who might tease them.
Miniature Pinschers are very smart and love their families, but they can also be independent and may try to test their owner’s limits, so obedience training is a good idea. Early socialization and puppy training classes are recommended and help to ensure that the dog grows into a well-adjusted, well-mannered companion.
The Min Pin is not the dog for everyone, especially first-time dog owners. His energy and intelligence can catch his owner off guard. Without proper training and supervision, he can quickly become a tyrant in the household. Not surprisingly, the self-assured Min Pin is a great watchdog.
Min Pins, as their fanciers call them, are extremely loyal and protective of their households. They are very aware of outside movement and noise. Great watchdogs for their size, Miniature Pinschers will bark loudly if they sense danger.

Bred in Germany and developed from the much larger German Pinscher, this sturdy but graceful dog was once used as a farmyard rat-hunter. The Miniature Pinscher is quick and lively, moving with a characteristic high-stepping, hackney gait. Perfect for a small home, the breed has sharp senses that make it a good watchdog.
The Miniature Pinscher is not bred down in size from Doberman Pinscher stock, in fact, the MinPin is a much older breed (predates the Doberman by about 200 years). In the 1800s, writings suggest Italian Greyhound and Dachshund were contributors to breed development. Records date back perhaps 2000 years and the German Pinscher may in fact be the original larger breed ancestor. The origins of the breed are in Scandinavia and particularly, later in Germany. Pinscher means biter or terrier. The AKC registry admitted the breed in 1929.
Historically, they served as valuable rodent control dogs. Watchdog and companionship are two other roles that they play.
