    History & Overview

    The smooth-haired Pinscher is an ancient breed which was first mentioned in the German Stud Book for dogs as early as the 1880s. He has the same ancestors as the Schnauzer which used to be called the rough-coated Pinscher. But these two breeds were different from the very beginning.

    Roles

    This medium-sized, elegant, well-built and sturdy dog evolved as a traditional farmer’s dog. It controlled vermin, drove livestock and guarded home. He is the forebearer of the Miniature Pinscher and played a role in the development of the Doberman pinscher.

    Character

    With its short coat, strong built and elegant looks, the German Pinscher is an ideal companion dog. It is hard to explain, but this breed is quite rare. In addition to being an excellent watchdog and a vocal guard dog, he is very responsive to obedience training. Like other pinschers and terriers, he will not back off from fights and needs firm and consistent training.

    Appearance

    The ideal height is 6 – 19 inches at shoulders. The coat is short, dense, smooth, close and shiny. Colors are deer red, reddish-brown to dark red brown. Black and Tan : Lacquer black with red or brown markings. The markings are distributed as follows: above the eyes, at the underside of the throat, on the pastern, on the feet, at the inside of the hind legs and under the root of the tail. Two even, clearly separated triangles on the chest.

    Bacterial & Skin Diseases

    It is believed that 99% of health problems in rabbits would not occur with proper management, which includes good sanitation, feeding high-quality feed, taking time daily to clean and fill water and feed bowls, providing adequate room, cleaning sitting boards, cleaning ears and checking teeth and continually providing protection from cold, heat, wind and rain. Sanitation plays a major role in the health of your rabbit and cannot be overemphasized. Failure to adhere to good sanitation practices will inevitably result in the development of bacterial and fungal diseases.
