Carlin Pinscher

The Carlin Pinscher is a new and developing dog breed and it is a cross between a Miniature Pinscher and a Pug with some other breeds later mixed in like the Boxer. "Pinscher' in German means 'Terrier' and 'Carlin' is the name used for Pugs in some countries so the name 'Carlin Pinscher' means 'Terrier Pug'. The breed was developed accidentally. In 1992, French breeder Isabeau Morgan and Hawaiian breeder Kawika Buenafe left their co-owned champion Red Pinscher with a Black Pug. On their return, they found out the two dogs had bred and the resultant three puppies resembled small Rottweiler. One of these puppies was named Snooz and it became very popular as people wanted more dogs like Snooz. With so much demand for these unplanned dogs, the breeder friends decided to go ahead with producing more puppies like Snooz. It was decided that same dog breeds will be used to produce the new puppies. Female Pugs were used as they are accustomed to having large headed dogs. Isabeau Morgan, Kawiki Buenafe, Grant Milionta, and others are now working with these dogs to establish a line of Carlin Pinschers which can be applied to the major Kennel Clubs.

This small dog has height between 11 to 13 inches and weighs between 12-14 lbs. Similar in appearance to a Rottweiler, the dog has short muzzle and doomed skull with Pug like thick legs and strong body.

This breed is still in the process of developing and it will be applied for registration after development is complete.
