"This is Koda, a Miniature Pinscher / Japanese Chin mix. This picture is of her when she was 9 weeks old. She is a very hyper puppy and loves to torment the house cats, and she loves to chew on everything! She also is extremely jealous and loves attention!"


The Chin-Pin is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Japanese Chin and the Miniature Pinscher. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
