Its maximum height is two cm less than minimum height of miniature Pinscher. Used as rat catchers since old times, the breed was developed as a companion dog. The breed was popular in central European royal palaces in the Middle Ages. It was already an established breed by the time of the rule of the Polish king Boles'aw II the Generous (1058-1081). It is present in low numbers with only 2500 specimen registered under this breed. It comes with a fragile looking body that has a broad but not deep chest and moderately long and narrow neck that supports its delicate head.The dog's coat consists of short, glossy hair and the most common color is black and tan, which is also the original color. Lately, other colors have been approved: Brown and tan, Blue and tan, Lila and tan, Yellow, Red and Merle. This breed is NOT recognized by AKC or any other major kennel club.
