There were already large numbers of Miniature Pinschers back in 1925, with no fewer than 1300 registrations in the stud book. There were many different coat colors, but only black dogs with light markings and self-colored dogs in red or brownish were used as breeding stock.Miniature Pinschers are basically a smaller version of German Pinschers without any signs of dwarfism. These elegant little smooth-haired dogs are clearly square-shaped.
