      The German Pinscher ~

               A Working Dog of Great Intelligence

The German Pinscher..

is an ancient breed of great intelligence and high energy.
They are medium sized and robust with a strong prey drive.
Alert and intelligent, they are outstanding performance dogs as well as companions with an instinctive drive to protect home and family.
Because of their strong will, intelligence and independent nature, obedience training is a MUST! Red, Black and Tan, Blue and Tan and Fawn are acceptable colors.
