A special characteristic is that the Min Pins are tough little dogs with a lot of attitudes. They are fearless, intensely curious, and always ready for action. You can always be surprised about their energy.

I always say that these dogs need exposure to many different people, sounds, sights, places – sooner the better. In one word they need early socialization. Inviting visitors over regularly, and taking him to busy parks, stores that allow dogs, and on leisurely strolls to meet neighbours will also help him polish his social skills.

Also meeting at least one of the parents (Especially mother) is the number one thing you should do.  In this way, your puppy will sooner know what he will be like when he grows up and with early socialization ensure that your Min Pin puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.

He’s an excellent watchdog, so excellent we can say he might as well be a detective. He wants to investigate everything and, if him polish watched closely, he’ll get himself into trouble.  Don’t forget the Min Pin’s penchant for escaping. He’ll find weak places in the fencing or dash out the front door neighbours sign for a package. You have to be on your guard to keep your dog safe. Minipins are familiar with parties, so they love to entertain, and they will often play them in order to get the attention they crave. He loves his family so much..🙂

Make sure all small objects (keys, coins, kids’ toys, and etc) stay out of his reach. Medication can be a serious issue because the Min Pin will find and ingest any pills that you chance to drop on the floor; be sure to put those away after every use!


The Min Pin doesn’t have a lot of furs, which means he’s sensitive to cold. Buy him a doggie sweater he can wear when you are taking him outside in cold winter days.

Keep your Min Pin in good shape by measuring his food. You can feed him twice a day rather than leaving food out all the time. If you’re unsure whether he’s overweight, give him the eye test and the hands-on test.

Although the MinPin looks like a smaller version of a Doberman, he’s a completely separate breed. It’s been a lot spoken that both the Min Pin and the Doberman descended from the German Pinscher, but that the Doberman’s other ancestors were dogs such as the Rottweiler,  while the Min Pin’s were Dachshunds and Italian Greyhounds.
There have been Speculations about the MinPin and its relation with  Manchester Terrier. While these two breeds resemble each other, there is no relation between them.
The Min Pin is a sturdy dog with a dynamite personality. If given the chance, this King of Toys will rule you and your household. If you’ reconsidering owning one, you must be willing and able to be a strong yet kind pack leader.
