Miniature Pinscher Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/24/2005
I have a min pin who to some people think he's alittle big, but I was told he was a large breed and I never cropped the ears so they are also big. He is somewhat of a giant to other min pins, are there different size min pins.

7/19/05 Yes, there are different size Min Pins. For example I breed Tiny Min Pins. I have seen them from 3.5 lbs to 20 lbs. Thats a Huge range. Just look around the web. I've never heard the term large breed in Min's though. Lora

12/1/05 Miniature Pinscher Breed Standard per the AKC, and The Miniature Pinscher Club of America: Size: 10 inches to 12 inches in height allowed, with desired height 11 inches to 11 inches measured at highest point of the shoulder blades. Disqualification: Under 10 inches or over 12 inches in height. There is no weight guideline, only height. Any dog should be of a healthy weight, and the appropriate weight for each dog varies depending on the build of the dog. A finer boned dog would weigh less than a sturdier boned dog of the same height. Generally from my experience, a fine boned 10 inch dog weighs around 6 lbs, and a larger boned 12 1/2 inch dog can weigh around 13 lbs. Jennifer
