Although the Miniature Pinscher is diminutive, it is not a miniaturized version of the Doberman Pinscher as its name and its looks might lead you to believe. It's generally thought that the breed was developed using Italian Greyhounds, Dachshunds and German Pinschers as the foundation stock. Min Pins typically stand 10 to 12 1/2 inches tall.
Miniature Pinscher - these do not come from Doberman Pinschers. Pinscher simply means "terrier" in German. The breed is thought to have come from the Manchester Terrier. They were bred to be "mousers" - and they do have some catlike characteristics, sunbeaming is one of them.
