German Pinscher

German Pinscher
A well bred German Pinscher will be a loving companion with an even temperament. Temperament is hereditary. If you are considering adding a German Pinscher to your family, be sure to that you are able to meet and touch the mother of the puppy you are offered.

Do not accept excuses for poor temperament. German Pinschers should be friendly dogs. They are highly intelligent, quick learners who do not enjoy repetition in training. A well bred German Pinscher can be trusted with small animals and children, though no dog should ever be left unsupervised with either. If the puppy shys away when you meet it, or you are unable to touch the mother, find a better breeder.

German Pinschers want to be part of the family. They are not happy kept outside, or in a kennel situation. They are happiest on the couch and in bed with the people they love.
