german pinscher

The German Pinscher is alert, good-natured and playful. German Pinschers make great family pets and watchdogs. They can provide entertainment with their high spirits and get along with the young and the elderly. This breed are very intelligent and are quick to learn. German Pinschers are extremely brave and loyal to their family and only bark when necessary.

German Pinschers only need occasional brushing to remove dead or loose hairs.

German Pinschers don't demand a great deal of exercise. They are happy with regular walks, running alongside a cycle or playing with their owner in the backyard.

The history of the German Pinscher is rather obscure. It is believed that the Miniature Pinscher and the Dobermann are likely origins of this breed. Some believe that the breed also incorporated the Black and Tan Terrier, as it was present at that time in Germany. For no good reason the Dobermann and the Miniature Pinscher were far more popular than the German Pinscher.
