Is the Miniature Pinscher Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. However, as a general rule, the Miniature Pinscher Mix will represent the classic case of a big dog in a small dog's body -- a choice for the confident owner who likes an active, alert smaller watchdog that can hold its own. It probably isn't right for the family with other pets that might tempt the Min Pin to chase and dominate.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the MinPin mix you can expect a sleek, well-muscled little dog with strength and grace that contrasts nicely with its size.

Behavior / temperament:
A mixed-breed dog's personality is never entirely predictable but if your dog is mostly MinPin, you may want to consider some of these elements of the MinPin character. They tend to be energetic, spirited, stubborn, and very curious, and they demand an involved owner who enjoys playing with them. Min Pins are not by nature timid, calm lapdogs, but instead they're fairly active dogs who can become one or two person pets if not carefully socialized. They can be aloof around people they have never been introduced to and are very protective of their special humans.
