With 24 chapters and more than 400 photographs and illustrations, The Miniature Pinscher: King of Toys offers a comprehensive analysis of the Min Pin--as he's affectionately known to fanciers--with up-to-date information for pet owners, breeders, handlers, and trainers alike. It includes chapters on the history of the breed in its native Germany, the United States, and Canada, as well as its development in other parts of the world. The book examines all aspects of pet care, such as locating a healthy puppy, grooming, feeding, basic training, correcting problem behavior, and house-training. It covers showing, handling, and judging, along with a thorough review of the breed standard. The book provides advice on keeping the Min Pin healthy, with sections on routine care, first aid, and hereditary diseases. It also discusses breeding and raising puppies, with timely information on pregnancy, whelping, and puppy care. Award of Excellence by The Dog Writers Association of America.
