The Pinscher is a handsome, medium-sized dog that looks a lot like the Doberman. The breed originated in Germany, where it was originally bred to hunt vermin and where it is still highly prized. However, these elegant dogs are quite rare to see here in the UK and very few well bred puppies are bred and registered with the Kennel Club each year. Therefore, anyone wishing to share their home with a Pinscher must register their interest with breeders and agree to be placed on a waiting list.
