Questions & Answers
We fully support the great work done by shelters across the country and encourage everyone to think carefully about where they want to get their dog from. There are pros and cons on both sides. If you really want a Miniature Pinscher, buying from a breeder is often easier as you can pick and choose from multiple litters, as well as getting access to health, diet, and behavior information that may not be available at shelters.
Miniature Pinschers look quite like Dobermans, but they actually have more in common with other breeeds like German Pinschers, Dachshunds, and Greyhounds. They were first bred to hunt rats and rodents, but these days, they're more commonly kept as canine companions, famed for their friendly, sociable, easygoing nature and impressive intelligence.
Despite the fact that Miniature Pinschers are very small, they do have quite high energy levels compared to many other small dog breeds. Because of this, they will need a reasonable amount of exercise. They can still live quite happily in apartments, but you can't keep them cooped up all day and will need to take them out for one or two daily walks.
Known as the “King of Toys”, the Miniature Pinscher is quite a headstrong and confident breed. These pups tend to have quite a lot of character, which can make them very endearing and help them form special bonds with their families, but they will need plenty of training and socialization to avoid developing any bad habits or acting too much like the 'Boss' of the family.
We believe that every true dog lover deserves to find a happy, healthy pup, and every pup deserves a happy home. To bring dog lovers together with lovely puppies, we devised our Breeder Pledge – a 47-point plan that all of our featured breeders must abide in order to remain a part of the Uptown family. The pledge covers all key aspects of breeding, raising, and selling puppies.
Getting listed on Uptown is totally free, but you'll need to prove yourself first. Take a look at our Breeder Pledge to see what standards we expect of the breeders we work with. If you think you meet all 47 points outlined in the pledge, send us your application and we'll take a look. If you get approved, you'll enjoy all the benefits of Uptown membership, with your own Breeder Profile on our site and the option to add our exclusive Five-Star Breeder Badge to your own site too.
Since the Mini Pinscher is quite a popular breed, with many breeders operating all over the US, it's not usually too hard to find a breeder nearby. Even if you live some distance from the nearest breeder, there's no need to worry as Uptown's featured breeders will make it easy to have your pup transported over to an airport near you, anywhere across the Lower 48 States.
The breeders and businesses in the Uptown Network always offer nose-to-tail health checks on all of their puppies. These checks, as the name implies, cover every part of your pup from the nose right through to the tail, including eyes, ears, skin, hair, heart, and more. They're very thorough, so you won't need to worry about any unexpected health surprises when your dog arrives.
Mini Pinschers may look quite small, but they're quite energetic too! Unlike other small or toy breeds, they'll need a reasonable amount of exercise, including one or two walks per day and plenty more interaction around the home as well. They don't like being cooped up for too long, so make sure you can meet the needs of the breed and take your Mini Pinscher for plenty of outdoor adventures.
You can speak to different Mini Pinscher owners and breeders about the best food to give these dogs and get different answers every time. The truth is that every single pup is different, even when they're part of the same breed. It's up to you to figure out what your dog likes best by trying a few different food types and gauging their reactions. Speak with your vet for more dietary advice if your dog is a picky eater.
A purebred dog is one that has been bred to meet the specific standards of an established pedigree. For example, a Golden Retriever puppy, born to two Golden Retriever parents, is a purebred dog. A mixed bred dog, on the other hand, is one that has two or more breeds involved in its ancestry. An example would be a Goldipoo puppy which has one Golden Retriever parent and one Poodle parent.
At Uptown, we are 100% committed to transparency, and so are the breeders we work with. They don't keep secrets or try to trick their customers in any way, and they're always available to answer questions, provide additional information, keep you updated on how your chosen dog is doing, and much more.
