The Miniature Pinscher has been known and admired for centuries--first in Germany an then around the world. The reasons the breed is so well-regarded are found in The Miniature Pinscher , the newest book on this good-looking companion dog. The Miniature Pinscher tells all about Min Pins and examines whether this is the right breed for you, what it's like to live with a Min Pin, and what these dogs need to be happy and healthy.

If you are considerering owning a Miniature Pinscher you will find all your questions on training, general care, the breed standard, and all the fun activities owners and dogs can enjoy together answered in this insightful book. As with earlier titles in Howell's Best of Breed Library series, the book offers valuable appendices and a thorough index.
