Smooth-haired Pinschers are members of a very old breed, mentioned in the German stud book as far back as 1880. They have the same ancestors as Schnauzers, which used to be known as Wirehaired Pinschers. Coat color was another feature that separated the two varieties. The Smooth-haired Pinschers were mostly black with light brown markings, self-colored in shades of brown to red, salt and pepper, or simply grayish blue to black.German Pinschers are medium-sized dogs of square build. Robust like Schnauzers, they carry themselves with pride. These elegant animals are well proportioned, with well developed muscles that can be clearly discerned under its smooth coat, especially in movement.
