PINSCHER ENANO DOG

The first title that the Midget Pinscher will get is its owner’s house mortgage: confident and proud, this toy prefers to own the place it lives in. 
 
The compact Midget Pinscher is a small dog, short, with a smooth coat and with a lot of spirit. It stands from 25 to 32 cm., and it is square built, although the female is usually longer. The head is well proportionate with the body, narrowing, but never coarse. The eyes are full and bright, slightly oval; the ears small, high inserted, hanging or erect; the skull is flat, narrows towards the muzzle, which is strong and proportional to the head, not fine. The neck is arched gracefully and muscled, without dewlap. The back straight; the body compact, slightly wedge shaped; the chest well developed; short kidneys; rump leveled to the upper outline; high inserted tail, docked. Clean shoulders; straight and strong forelegs; tight feet; well separated hindquarters. The coat should be smooth and straight, glossy, unicolor and bicolor, with colors rich in red, black or chocolate, with rust colored patched. The thumb patches (black or chocolate hair patches), between the forelegs and wrist, disqualify, as a white spot in dimensions over 4 cm. The breed has a unique movement, very elevated, hackney type, moving the parallel fore and hind legs; with good impulsion from the hinds.
 
Natural born show man, the Midget Pinscher will have its second title easily: champion. Although red dominates in the show, there are many excellent black and tan to compete with. 
 
WHO IS IT RIGHT FOR     
The Midget Pinscher is a praise worthy dog, smart, with plenty of energy. It necessarily requires attention, understanding and the ability to outlet its abundant energy. It should be taught cleanliness at home immediately. Some are prone to bite; well channeled, it can be a great guardian. Children should be taught that the Midget Pinscher has its limits, and doesn’t tolerate too much groping. The Midget Pinscher can be its own, and doesn’t adapt to new environments or children quickly. It is affectionate and obedient with its owners.
 
No one has explained the Midget Pinscher that it belongs to the toy group. Therefore, it has no idea of its size, it struts, primes and brawls like the proud Dobermann it thinks it is. 
 
DEVELOPMENT
The Midget Pinscher is a small breed with an exceptional health, which rarely suffers growth problems. A possible problem is cleft palate, and every puppy should be checked. In addition, numerous litters usually need supplementary diets to properly develop. Tails and dewclaws are removed after five days. Ear cropping is usually done after three months. 
It should be performed by a professional. Check if laws in your country allow it. The buyer should seek a puppy with a solid body, bursting with health and extroverted personality. It is normal that the coat changes colors. A light red tends to darken with age, while a chestnut adult will have been born completely white. For this, it is difficult to determine the color in puppies. Incorrect spotting, as in the thumb, or white patches are serious defects that the buyer should watch after. (Small spots in a puppy can disappear when the coat darkens).  
 
The mother’s good character and obedience can help it guarantee the puppy’s temperament. The owner should treat the Midget Pinscher with justice and consistency, never spoil, provoke or ignore the dog.

The Midget Pinscher can be called “king of the small”, and for a reason: its great intelligence, tireless energy and fearless character, are found along with good health, especially for a toy breed. The problems affect the breed are not frequent, but they include the Legg-Perthes disease (deterioration in the femur head in the absence of bacteria), progressive retinal atrophy, deafness, kidney stones, and pigmentation lack. Skin disease is more frequent, and the new owner should check for incidence in the breeder line. Lack of pigmentation usually affects the nose, nails and eyelids, and can implicate skin problems in the adult. Injuries are not rare: dislocations, limb fractures and wounds are latent risks. The owner should offer abundant mental stimulation and physical activity to their Midget Pinscher along its possible 12 years of age.
