HISTORY

Originally developed to eradicate vermin, the German Pinscher originated in Germany sometime between the late 1700s and the late 1800s. There is no clear evidence of exactly when they were developed, but a painting dating from around 1780 portrays a dog similar in appearance to the German Pinscher. The German Pinscher was a foundation dog for many breeds, including the Doberman Pinscher and the Miniature Pinscher. The breed was founded by the Rat Pinscher, also known as the Rat Hunter or the Great Rat, a breed that became extinct in the early 1800s. The German Pinscher was recognised as a breed in 1895. During the World Wars, the German Pinscher was nearly extinct. In fact, two colours of the breed became extinct: pure black and spotted. After World War II, a West German named Werner Jung began breeding German Pinschers and saved the breed. German Pinschers were first imported into the United States in the late 1970s.
