The Toy Munchkin was developed to be the ideal companion dog for almost any lifestyle. It is a lively, happy and intelligent dog that, though small in size, should never give the appearance of weakness or frailty. The ideal Toy Munchkin goes anywhere with its owner with confidence, never showing shyness or nervousness. Although this dog might be aloof with strangers, it quickly warms to positive attention. Thanks to its small size, the Munchkin is perfect for apartment dwelling or a more sedentary lifestyle. Aside from its small size, one of the most distinguishing features about the Toy Munchkin is its "lion" cut. The coat on the back legs, hindquarters and midsection to shoulders is shaved close and the tail is shaved to within 1 inch from its tip, resulting in a pom-pom. The Toy Munchkin must be clipped in this style if it is going to be shown. The coat itself is relatively dense and thick and adult dogs generally develop an undercoat when they're about a year old. Any color, combination of colors, patterns and shading is permissible with the exception of albinism. The tail is set high and carried over the back in a loose coil. Ears are moderate in size and are carried erect. The eyes are almond shaped and the color must correspond to the dog's coat color. The height is 4 to 9 inches at the shoulder, and weight is 2 to 6 pounds. Although overall balance and sound structure are more important than size, the smaller size dogs are preferred.
