It’s thought that the Min Pin was created by crossing breeds as diverse as the Dachshund, the old German Pinscher, the Manchester Terrier, and the Italian Greyhound. He’s a good family dog and protects his people by challenging intruders who are fifteen times his size with his bold bark.

The Miniature Pinscher is athletic, spirited, and among the most energetic dogs. Despite their name, the Miniature Pinscher or “Min Pin” is not a miniature version of the Doberman Pinscher. In fact, the Min Pin is the older of the two breeds.

Small size and delicate appearance are characteristic of Prague Ratters. In terms of care, it is important to consider the temperament and behavior of this breed in order to understand what they are. Prague Ratters do not need too much care in terms of their coat. They have short and smooth fur, perfect to forget about brushing it regularly like other breeds require.

The Prazky Krysarik is 2 cm shorter in maximum height than the Miniature Pinscher is in minimum height. The neck is moderately long and narrow, supporting its delicate head. The muzzle is narrow and fox-like, with straight but crowded teeth. Its coat is short with very thin, glossy fur. Coat color is mostly black and tan.

    I’ve had min pins, they’re a handful and I love min pins, however now that I’m "older" I’d go for the more docile Prague ratter.

    I owned a Min Pin years ago and she was a sweetheart. Now, I have a Prague Ratter. He is definitely much more dependent on me and is much less willing to even acknowledge other people than the minpin was. I don’t think that he’s ever warmed up to anyone else despite extensive efforts to socialize him when he was young. He will, however, valiantly defend my lap against encroachment by my other dog- which is an American Alsatian that weighs around 125 pounds (roughly 55 kg).

    I would definitely choose–and have definitely chosen–the Prague Ratter. I really regard the Prazsky as an upgrade on the Min Pin in the following regards: 1) no inherited health issues other than the possibility of patella luxation that all tiny dogs face; 2) gentler, sweeter personality more suited for extended cuddle times (but I think Min Pins are probably just as cuddly–just more hyper; 3) minimal yappiness (Prazskies are quiet enough to be good apartment dogs, although they will bark briefly to alert you of strange noises and people approaching the house); 4) minimal shedding (perhaps the Min Pin is also low-shedding and no one talks about it–but not all smooth coats are created equal, because the Rat Terrier, for instance, can shed a great deal; and 5) greater ease of housebreaking (in general) to the extent that they can even be trained to use the litter box like a cat.

    Thanks for the video, I’ve never heard about Prague Ratter, I don’t think we have it in Brazil. My baby is a lovely mini pin.

    They do look the same. I breed ( The Miniture Pincher x Deer Head Chihuahua breed ). I like this video very much my friend.

    I have a Min Pin. She was the runt of the litter so is very small. Her temperament sounds a lot more like your description of the Prague Ratter than the Min Pin. I guess to some degree it comes down to the nature of the individual dog!

    Prague Ratter or Miniature Pinscher. Which one is your favourite?

    Prague ratter

  15. JoannahMor76 on November 23, 2019 at 8:44 am

    My parents had mini-pins at some point. The Prague Ratter sounds like a better fit for us. A quick search shows that the Prague Ratter is known as a ‘Tjekkisk Rottehund’ here.
