History of the Miniature Pinscher

The Miniature Pinscher or the Min Pin as it is colloquially abbreviated to is believed to have originated in Germany over two hundred years ago, it was originally known as the Reh Pinscher in reference to a small red deer which freely roamed the German forests many years ago. The Miniature Pinscher has been pictured in oil paintings and sculptures that distinctly place the Miniature Pinscher as a very old breed, however because accurate documentation began less than 200 years ago, its breeds actual origins cannot be accurately stated. In Germany the breed is officially called the Zwergpinscher which simply means dwarf pinscher.

In 1836 Dr. H. G. Reinchenbach, a German writer, stated that the Miniature Pinscher is a cross of the Dachshund and Italian Greyhound. Many historians and those who have researched the background of this breed agree that the ancestors of the Miniature Pinscher to most likely include a combination of the smaller German smooth haired Pinscher, the Italian Greyhound and the Smooth Dachshund. The Miniature Pinscher is not a, smaller version of the Doberman Pinscher, for those who disagree about the origins of the Miniature Pinscher I would like to point out that the German Miniature Pinscher Club was formed in 1895, however the German Kennel Club had recognized the breed and published a standard back in 1880, ten years before Louis Doberman bred his first Doberman.
