    History & Overview

    The Austrian Pinscher descends from the ancient Austrian country pinschers that were widespread still in the second half of the 19th century, being modest, versatile farm dogs. In 1921 the systematic pure breeding of this breed began. On Oct. 16th, 1928, the breed was recognized by the Austrian Kennel Club (Österreichischer Kynologenverband) as Österreichischer kurzhaariger Pinscher (Austrian Shorthaired Pinscher). In the year 2000 the breed was renamed Österreichischer Pinscher (Austrian Pinscher).

    Character

    This is a stocky dog of medium size with lively and bright expression. Assertive, lively, alert, playful and especially devoted and friendly dealing with people familiar to him. Towards strangers he is suspicious and an incorruptible guard. His hunting instinct is only slightly developed. His bark does not make him ideal for urban life. Fearless and attentive, this dog makes a terrific watchdog.

    Appearance

    The double coat is thick. The outer coat is short to medium-long, thick, smooth and close-lying. The undercoat is thick and short, buttocks slightly trousered. The color is russet gold (semmelgelb), brownish yellow, stag-red, black with tan-coloured markings. White markings: chest patch, muzzle, neck, throat, nape, feet and tip of tail. Lack of white markings is not a fault.
