While the Min Pin looks like a smaller version of a Doberman, he's a completely separate breed. It's speculated that both the Min Pin and the Doberman descended from the German Pinscher, but that the Doberman's other ancestors were dogs such as the Rottweiler, while the Min Pin's were Dachshunds and Italian Greyhounds.

Slightly larger than the Toy Poodle, the Miniature Poodle stands at about 15 inches tall and should weigh in somewhere between 12–20 pounds.

Miniature Poodles are extremely smart, adaptable and easy to train, so it's no surprise that they were once very popular circus dogs.

Doberman pinschers are considered people-oriented dogs that are affectionate and sweet with people, if socialized and trained properly.

They are loyal to their owners and are good with children if raised with them; however, some Dobermans bond only to one person.

The average price of a Doberman puppy from a reputable breeder is between $1500 and $2500.
