German Pinscher Puppies
Description: The German Pinscher is a well balanced, smooth coated, medium sized dog with elegant and flowing outlines, but strong and well muscled. They are tall terriers, with longer than usual legs. They are smooth coated, and one hundred years ago they came in the same litter as Schnauzers. They were simply distinguished by "rough-haired", or in German "rauhaariger Pinscher", and "waveless-haired Pinscher", or "glatthaariger Pinscher". German Pinschers have drop ears, or they can be cropped. They have dark eyes and can be any solid color from fawn to stag red, as well as black with tan markings or blue with red or tan markings. They are smooth in coat, glossy and coarse. They require little maintenance, and fairly intelligent. They have docile, versatile personalities, but are unafraid of a fight, like most terriers. They are small, but will take on larger dogs. They can be territorial and possessive of their toys, territory, and owner. When relaxed, they are playful and exuberant. They enjoy being with their humans. German Pinschers are assertive, fearless and can sometimes outsmart their owners. They are good as watchdogs and guard dogs, making use of their voice. They do well with obedience training, needing firm but gentle training. German Pinschers are a big dog in a small package, able to guard when you need them to and play when you want them to.
