History of the Miniature Pinscher

By: Sue Edmondson

In 1836 Dr. H. G. Reinchenbach, a German writer, stated that theMiniature Pinscher is a cross of the Dachshund and Italian Greyhound.Many historians and those who have researched the background of thisbreed agree that the ancestors of the Miniature Pinscher to most likelyinclude a combination of the smaller German smooth haired Pinscher, theItalian Greyhound and the Smooth Dachshund. The Miniature Pinscher isnot a, smaller version of the Doberman Pinscher, for those who disagreeabout the origins of the Miniature Pinscher I would like to point outthat the German Miniature Pinscher Club was formed in 1895, however theGerman Kennel Club had recognized the breed and published a standardback in 1880, ten years before Louis Doberman bred his first Doberman.
