Ziggy. Crossbred dogs have a mix of characteristics from both its parent breeds. This makes it vital to understand the characteristics of both breeds in order to figure out your dog.

Understanding how your mini Pinscher Terrier mix will respond to socializing and training will help result in positive, happy, loving dogs. A Pinscher Terrier mix needs calm consistency on the part of the owner. Pinschers are sensitive to emotional outbursts and harsh tones that can provoke behavior out of fear and anxiety.

Crossbreeds of these two can show a wide range of combinations. When an owner properly socializes a dog by exposing it to new people and places, the dog will learn to accept different experiences as part of life. It can also help to establish the owner’s leadership role and basic respect for humans. Early and consistent socialization with this crossbreed can also prevent many things.

Playing roughly with a puppy and having it bite at your hands may seem adorable at the time, but years later it can turn into a serious problem. Pinschers do not respond well to roughhousing and tend to respond in a variety of behaviors. Terriers are excitable; therefore, a crossbred dog like a mini Pinscher Terrier mix will respond with a mix of these reactions, though accurately predicting what that mix will be is impossible.

Rescue dogs should not be disturbed while they are eating food can be a high value item. Dogs are possessive and protective by nature. If a dog does not respect humans, it will protect what it believes belongs to it, which is why trying to remove a bone while the dog is chewing is a bad idea. Rather wait until the dog is done or distract him with a walk or cookie. Once a dog has lived with you a while and you have earned their respect, this will change.

DOBERMAN PINSCHERS –  are very keen, super energetic with tremendous strength and stamina. Dobes like to be with their people and are not suited to kennel or back yard life, they need human interaction and leadership–Ziggy has these charactestics.  She is loyal, tolerant, dedicated and affectionate with the family. She is alos very adaptable, highly skilled, intelligent and very easy to train. Doberman’s are an outstanding watch and guard dog and do not need additional protection training. This breed is not for everyone.

Ziggy will need an owner who is willing and able to display a natural authority over the dog. All family members must be firm, confident and consistent, setting rules and sticking to them.  Dobermans can become stubborn and willful if allowed having their own way. Everything must be on the human’s terms. The dog is the follower, and the humans are the leaders. The dog will appreciate knowing her place in her pack and feel secure about it.

Mental stimulation and a lot of daily exercise are important in order to produce a happy, stable minded dog. Dobes can be good family dogs if the alpha role belongs to the human and if they receive enough exercise, are well trained and are socialized with children.

Issues arise when they reside with owners who do not display the proper leadership and or do not provide enough exercise. This dog is sweet and gentle with nursing-home patients – tippy-toeing over IV tubing and walking at the resident’s speed; at the same time will fiercely defend her master if it becomes necessary. The dog’s temperament will vary greatly depending on how well the owners understand canine behavior and how willing they are to take the time to provide what the dog instinctually needs.

GERMAN SHEPHERDS –  are often used as working dog; are courageous, keen, alert and fearless. They are also cheerful, obedient, eager to learn, confident, serious and clever. GSDs are extremely faithful, and brave. They will not think twice about giving their lives for their human pack. They have a high learning ability. GSD’s love to be close to their families, but can be wary of strangers. This breed needs her people and should not be left isolated for long periods of time. They only bark when they feel it is necessary.

Problems arise due to poor handling when an owner allows the dog to believe she is pack leader over humans and or does not give the dog the mental and physical daily exercise they need to be stable. Like the Dobe, this breed needs owners who are naturally authoritative over the dog in calm, but firm, confident and consistent way. A stable, well-adjusted, and trained dog is for the most part generally good with other pets and excellent with children in the family. German Shepherds who have passive owners and or whose instincts are not being met can become timid, skittish and may be prone to fear biting and develop a guarding issue. GSD will not listen if they sense that they are stronger minded than their owner, however they will also not respond well to harsh discipline.

Owners need to have an air of natural authority to their demeanor. Do not treat this dog as if she were human. Learn canine instincts and treat the dog accordingly. German Shepherds are one of the smartest and most trainable breeds. With this highly skilled working dog comes a drive to have a job and a task in life and a consistent pack leader to show them guidance.

This is not a breed that will be happy simply laying around your living room or locked out in the back yard. The breed is so intelligent and learns so readily that it has been used as a sheepdog, guard dog, in police work, as a guide for the blind, in search and rescue service, and in the military.

RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
