Is the mini-pin actually a miniaturized version of the Doberman, or is it a separate line entirely, like the Manchester terrier? I remember years ago people thought the Manchester was a miniature Doberman.
My mom had a miniature dobie for years... they look exactly like small dobies.
This one was a red too which was rather rare. They are very hyper and
are very quick little dogs. They are very sweet dogs too.
