hi bonnie, thanks for taking time in looking at Panky's Geneology. You will also notice that Panky was born last Feb but was only registered recently, the reason for this is that the entire PCCI staff studied it very carefully and later on decided that it is a pure breed mini pinschers and finally issued us the papers. The first time we saw the pups we were also shocked and at the same time elated to see the white breed. We also took time in doing research pertaining to history of the mini pin.
The Miniature Pinscher is a German Breed, unrelated to the Doberman Pinscher, though they look nearly identical in features. The breed was developed from terrier breeds, including the German Pinscher and Italian Greyhound for the purpose of hunting rats in stables. The Dachshund was also used to help breed in the small size. (Pinscher means terrier in German.) In fact, the Doberman Pinscher was bred by Louis Doberman in 1890, and was designed to look like the Miniature Pinscher. For this reason, we know that the two breeds do share common ancestors, including the German Pinscher.
These dogs have been pictured in paintings for centuries, but actual documentation on the breed is only about 200 years old. Development of the breed outside of Germany began in 1895, when the German Pinscher Klub was formed and created the first breed standard. The Miniature Pinscher first came to the US in 1919, and was first registered with the AKC in 1929.
Since the dogs has been developed in diffrent kind of breeds ( terrier, german pinscher, italian greyhound )to finally produce the mini pin, there is a small chance that the mini pins can later on exhibits some features that were presents from these breeds. e.g for italian greyhound known and accepted colors present are Solid Gray, Slate Gray, Cream, Red, Fawn, Black, Blue, Speckled, WHITE Markings, Flecked.
This is just my theory and there maybe some or other explanations pertaining to creation or development of the mini pinschers. I'll be happy if others can also help us in explaining this rare development for the mini pinschers.
Again thanks Bonnie for taking interest in this matter
