    German Pinscher |Germany|

    By the nineteenth century, the German Pinscher was widespread in Germany and valued as a stable dog for catching rats and vermin, and for guarding properties. Josef Bertha founded the Pinscher Klub in 1895 by, the same year the breed was officially recognized. By the end of World War II, the breed was almost extinct and was saved by the efforts of Werner Jung, who bred his females Kitty V. Bodenstrand and Jutta to some oversized Miniature Pinschers and began to re-establish the type. All German Pinschers today trace back to his lines. These dogs are lively, intelligent, fiercely protective, and devoted. They can be wary of strangers and other dogs, and make good watchdogs.
