These spirited little extroverts have a huge zest for life. Miniature Pinschers bond tightly with their humans, and they make excellent watchdogs. These animated comedians are clever: They can be backyard “escape artists,” and obedience training will take persistence and skill. But for owners prepared for the experience, His Majesty, King of Toys, will amply reward the effort.
