Description and Temperament
DS and 3DS: "This German breed has a very appealing build and gait."
Among the most energetic of all breeds, the Min Pin is a motion machine. It is busy, playful, and bold. It retains terrier-like traits and tends to be stubborn and independent. It is reserved to strangers but affectionate to family.
It is a little-known fact that the Doberman Pinscher was based on the Miniature Pinscher, when a German tax-collector named Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann saw the muscular little rat-hunter and decided that a larger version would make the perfect guard dog.
Black & Tan pinschers are the most famous type, but they can also come in red and piebald. Piebald pinschers are seemingly rare compared to black & tan and red.

Nintendogs + Cats
In Nintendogs + Cats, the Miniature Pinscher comes in Black & Tan and Red. If the player chooses "Surprise me!" they may find a white Miniature Pinscher with gray or brown markings on its face, ears, and body or a completely white one. When they choose Black & Tan, the Miniature Pinschers that they get are black-and-tan or chocolate-and-tan. They may also find one that looks almost pink. Also, the tail of the Min Pin is a bit longer in Nintendogs + Cats than in the original game.
