The Minskin has very short legs, but they retain the same level of agility as any other active breed. Although a Minskin may have to be more inventive about finding a way to get to the topmost cabinet in the house, they always seem to figure it out! Outgoing and affectionate, the Minskin like the company of its humans, and is especially good with children and other pets. Intelligent, with a decidedly determined air, the Minskin is a friendly and entertaining companion. They adapt unusually well to new surroundings, quickly making themselves at home and thriving. They have an endearing eagerness to please, and communicate their needs well. They are not loud, but they easily make themselves understood.
