The German Pincher is a much older breed than the Doberman Pincher. They are a medium sized, robust breed suited for agility and obedience work, and prefer an active lifestyle. They were recognized by the American Kennel Club sometime around 2002, I believe. They come in several colors...red being the most popular, others include black and red, blue and red and fawn.

Yes many of the german dog breeds had that suffix to them like the German Boxer. Now it is just a boxer here.
It is also spelled with 2 n's in some countries.

Good that the german shepherd stayed the same, :)

No, German Pinschers and Doberman Pinschers are two separate breeds. The GP was used in the development of the Doberman though.

No, a German Pinscher is not a Doberman Pinscher. There is also a Miniature Pinscher.

The German Pinscher is smaller than a Doberman.

Doberman's weigh 60-90 pounds and their height is 25.5 - 27 inches.

German Pinscher weight is 25-25 pounds and their height is 17-19 inches.


Miniature Pinscher:

Miniature Pinscher's weight is 10-12 pounds and height is 10-12 inches.

Yes, they do look all alike, but their NOT the same breed.
