The German Pinscher is an agile and athletic, high-energy breed who requires ample daily exercise for his physical and mental well-being. The breed is medium-sized and robust, with a strong prey drive. Alert and intelligent, they are outstanding performance dogs as well as companions.
German Pinschers are typically robust, healthy dogs, although there are a few conditions that the breed can be prone to. These include hip dysplasia, eye disease, and von Willebrand's disease.
The German Pinscher originated in southern Germany and was first entered into German records in 1885 as a smooth coated Pinscher. The Pinscher was one of the foundation breeds in the origins of the Doberman Pinscher and the Miniature Pinscher.
