Min Pin Info
Although he’s a rather delicate-looking toy breed, the min pin is a sturdy dog with a dynamite personality. If given the chance, this King of Toys will rule you and your household. If you’re considering owning one, you must be willing and able to be a strong yet kind pack leader. Training and socialization are essential. It’s safe to say the min pin is his own dog, both in breeding and attitude.
While the min pin looks like a smaller version of a doberman pinscher, he’s a completely separate breed. It’s speculated that both the min pin and the Doberman descended from the German Pinscher, but that the Doberman’s other ancestors were dogs such as the Rottweiler, while the min pins were Dachshunds and Italian Greyhounds.
