The Carlin Pinscher was created in the 1990's by crossing Pugs with Miniature Pinschers. This lovely little dog was developed by Grant Milionta, Kawika Buenafe, Isabeau Morgan and Katushka Vitrichenko, with the intention of giving birth to a miniature Rottweiler breed. The playful Carlin Pinscher is bred for the life of a companion animal and family pet. It is reportedly healthy, energetic and completely devoted to its owner. The body is stocky and muscular, with a round head and a short muzzle.
The coat is flat, thick and black-n-tan in colour. Average height is around 12 inches.
