Arrival Story:
I had just lost my blue and tan min Jubilee in a car accident. I needed another baby because I couldn't stand not hearing her jingling under my feet. She was my "little shadow"! I was searching online and came across a very unique breed (only a little over 300 in existence to date) called Harlequin Pinschers. Immediately drawn to how beautiful they were, I had to have one. Now... I have 5! They are everything you could want out of a "min pin" and more. Plus, my little Apollo is quite a conversation starter when I take him with me everywhere I go!

Forums Motto:
~If its on the ground, ITS MINE!~

Information:
HARLEQUIN PINSCHERS This is a very controversial dog breed to say the least. The people who own them know that they aren't technically "harlequin"... its just the fancy name that they are called. They come in many assortments of piebalds, merles, and brindles. To get the markings, you take a one time cross with an approved merle/brindle rat terrier and then after 7 generations of VERY CAREFUL breeding (the genetics you have to pay attention to are insane because of the merle gene) the "harlequin" offspring back to a pure bred Min Pin, TADA! You have a DNA proven "Harlequin Pinscher". All the min pin is there and a little extra color. There is a small registry for them called the HPA through the ACR. There are 300-400 in existence to date. They are not yet AKC recognized and they have only been an "official breed" since 2007. We humans that own them are a very small community but growing as more and more people want to own one of these "colorful min pins". I hope this helps if anyone has any questions. You can very easily find information online about them. Thanks for stopping by!
