According to Rescue Every Dog, a Miniature Pinscher can live anywhere between 14 and 17 years. There are many factors that can go into the dog's lifespan, including its state of health, any injuries and weight-related problems.
These dogs are commonly known as "Min Puns." A Miniature Pinscher typically weighs between 8 and 11 pounds and they measure between 10 and 12.5 inches tall at the shoulders. These dogs are born with various colors of hair, including red, black, tan and brown. A Miniature Pinscher coat is very short, so they require less frequent grooming than dogs with longer coats.
