Harlequin Pinschers & Miniature Pinschers
"Know the Difference"
The Harlequin Pinscher and Miniature Pinscher are kissing cousins.
They are distinct separate recognized breeds of their own.
The Miniature Pinscher has been a recognized 'Ratting Terrier Type" breed since 1895.
The Harlequin Pinscher was recognized as a breed unto itself in 2006 and was developed
from the 1 time cross of a purebred Merle or Brindle Rat Terrier to purebred
Miniature Pinschers. The Merle & Brindle offspring were then bred back to other purebred
Miniature Pinschers for a minimium of 7 generations to achieve the purebred Harlequin Pinscher.
The Harlequin Pinschers of today can test out 100% Min Pin due to the high influence the
Min Pin plays in their development.
The difference comes in the "PATTERNS" the Harlequin Pinscher can come in
where as a Purebred Miniature Pinscher NEVER has a "PATTERN".
If you love the Min Pin then you'll be head over heels in love with the Harlies.
Min Pins can be:
Red, Black/Tan, Brown/Tan (*Chocolate), Blue/Tan, Fawn/Tan, Blue-Fawn & Tan
(*some Registries continue to add other Colors as Genetics Evolves).
Harlequin Pinschers can be:
All the colors as shown above for Min Pins with the added beauty of
being able to produce "PATTERN" genetics
of Merle, Brindle, Piebald and combinations of the 3.
A Harlequin Pinscher can look, act & test out as a Min Pin in every way.
A Min Pin however can not have the "Patterns" of a Harlequin Pinscher.

Our Puppies are Unsurpassed in Quality & Health.
I take the breeding of dogs seriously and not
just as a Hobby to produce pups for profit and it shows in both the Quality of the
dogs I've chosen to use for breeding and the Quality of the puppies I produce.
Contact us if you looking to Breed "True" HPA Harlequin Pinschers.
Acquiring a pup from Run-N-Ridge means you will get the Founding Bloodline without
having to research Pedigrees and hoping you get a true purebred Harlequin Pinscher.
Run-N-Ridge IS the Founding Breeder/Kennel/Bloodline of Harlequin Pinschers.
We don't sell "Day Old" Pups as the QUALITY of a pup should be a
breeders PRIORITY and not just the color/pattern of it's coat.
We will work with you on obtaining QUALITY, Healthy, HPA registered Harlequin Pinschers
to be used in an HPA Breeding Program ONLY!
All of our HPA puppies are restricted by Contract to HPA Registration Only.
Serious Inquiries Only Please!
My pages are ORIGINAL CONTENT. If you see it here then it is my ORIGINAL writings.
If you see it being used by NON-HPA breeders then it IS being used by
unscrupulous folks without permission.
Be sure you know who you are dealing with.
Regardless of what others may tell you - ONLY HPA has the database to link all dogs back to the
Founding Dogs and ONLY HPA and myself have the full HPA pedigree database.
Since Parent Verification can cause Pedigrees to be corrected and
reissued ONLY HPA has the most accurate Harlie database.
Be leary of those trying to use the Run-N-Ridge name and HPA Pedigrees to sell their own puppies.
ALL Run-N-Ridge pups sold and their future offspring are sold with restricted HPA
registration so pedigrees showing Run-N-Ridge bloodlines on them from other registries
are either false or being used by unscrupulous breeders breaking a contract or
bought from an unscrupulous breeder breaking a contract.
If they are willing to break a contract
they signed then will they honor one you sign?
A Breeder should be able to succeed on their own reputation and not that of others.
Our puppies speak for themselves with generations of dedicated breeding.
Please read our "Need to Know" (click here) Page before contacting us.
(*It is your responsibility as a buyer to totally read and fully comprehend.)
We meet puppy buyers in a safe PUBLIC location and bring only pup(s) that are being purchased.
Puppies are sold on a 72 hour 'well puppy check-up' guarantee.

restricted to HPA including their offspring.
Those using other Registries with Run-N-Ridge pedigrees
are breaking a signed contract or using falsified pedigrees.

Proudly registered with the only reputable Harlequin Pinscher Registry
recognized by the founding breeder - HPA.
Run-N-Ridge is the founding kennel & is responsible for re-developing the Harlequin Pinscher.
~~~ The Quality of our Dogs and Pups is Unsurpassed ~~~
Our Harlequin Pinschers are TRUE HPA Registered Harlequin Pinschers
bred from the founding Bloodlines being those of Run-N-Ridge
and documented back to the founding dogs .
Why HPA? The ONLY registry with the full HPA database for Harlies.
HPA strongly recommends testing for genetically clear-breeding dogs for
MPS VI, PLL, Cystinuria and DM.
HPA does not condone the registering of unknown lineage animals as some other registries allow.
If your not buying an HPA registered Harlie then your more likely buying a mixed-breed look-alike
from an unethical breeder only out for the money.

Please be advised that even though
the Run-N-Ridge Harlequin Pinschers have begun to test out
100% Min Pin they are not Min Pins but a breed unto themselves
known as "Harlequin Pinschers".
They come in all the colors of a Min-Pin plus the added
benefit of also being able to get patterned pups as well.
If your wanting an AKC Miniature Pinscher please look for the
AKC designation on the pictures.
As of April 2023 it became our policy to register ALL R-N-R
puppies from Harlequin Bloodlines as a Harlequin Pinscher
so to be true to the breed and to hopefully clear up the
misconception they are Miniature Pinschers which they are NOT.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Our Miniature Pinscher line-up consist of bloodlines from the United States,
Canada, Iran , Germany, the Phillipines and the Ukraine.
Our Miniature Pinschers are registered with the AKC &/or HPA.
A couple of our co-owners have expressed interest in showing so we encourage them to
"Take the leap and have fun and let the Rewards be many".
Why "AKC" for our Min-Pins?
AKC can offer our puppy buyers a lengthy uninterrupted documented Pedigree
just as HPA does for our Harlequin Pinschers.
We can also monitor any correction in a Pedigree through AKC just as we do
