German Pinschers have the same good looks as a Doberman but are not a smaller version of that breed. They are the older breed and were used to develop the Doberman. Many people familiar with Working dogs regard this smallest member of the Working group as a terrier in temperament. This couldn't be farther from the truth. While he has high prey drive he lacks the single-mindedness common to most of the Terrier breeds.
There are four approved colors of German Pinschers: Black and red, red, Isabella (fawn) and blue. According to long-time breeders the black dogs tend to be more reserved while the reds are more outgoing, almost silly. No matter what color they need continuous training and mental stimulation.
