The German Pinscher breed originated in Germany several hundred years ago.
German Pinschers have compact, medium-sized frames covered in short, smooth coats that usually come in red, fawn, brown & yellow and black & tan. Their long, flat heads have muscular cheeks, pointed muzzles, dark oval-shaped eyes and erect ears. They have thick but elegant necks that slope down to short, level backs and tails that are carried high. Overall, German Pinschers look tough yet refined.
German Pinschers can live as long as 14 years.
