Balanced and unexaggerated, the German Pinscher is medium in size, short in coat, muscular and elegant. Temperamentally the breed is both territorial and protective, discreet with its bark yet vivacious and ever alert.

    EXCELLENT BOOK (&ONLY BOOK) ON GERMAN PINSCHERS

    The book is written in easy reading and comprehensive of the German Pinscher, how to train, how to understand, and how to care for them. Many pictures, many explanations, and a great history of how the German Pinscher was almost extinct, was brought into creation, how was one of the dogs that created the Doberman Pinscher. Compared to other dog books, this one is written perfectly.
