I don't know much about miniature pinschers but when I googled the breed the first link that came up was "How many miniature pinschers does it take to chew up a house?" From what I read, they are notorious chewers. Plus you have a puppy on your hands.

Have you taken her to any puppy training classes?

Some dogs just enjoy chewing, and always do it. I have one who is 10 years old and still likes to chew. I buy chews from raw feeding Miami, that are rawhides but not commercial ones. They are completely unprocessed, no chemicals at all. Completely digestable. Literally hide rolled up and dried. http://rawfeedingmiami.com These things last a long time too.

Lightbulb Cheaper sources for shipping crates: Used, Freebies, GoodWill, on-line ads...

Look on FreeCycle or CraigsList for used / pre-owned crates -
on average, U save 1/2 the new-retail price by buying used, & many ppl give them away after "my pup is housetrained".

I'd also urge U to get a shipping crate, not a welded-wire 'show' crate.
An airline-approved shipping crate is the gold standard for safe transport, whether in a car, on a plane, wherever; they are burst-tested to so many pounds per square inch B4 they fail. They're also virtually escape proof [which wire crates definitely are not].

Shipping crates have solid bottoms that protect the dog from drafts, while the upper half has vents or windows, so ventilation is excellent. They protect the floor & carpet from leaks, spilled food / water / diarrhea / vomit, etc, & the dog can't pee THRU the 'walls', which they can in a wire crate.

The shallow trays in wire crates bend when the dog walks or stands, & that 'pop' can fling all kinds of nasty stuff around the room. Plus pee or poop gets splattered thru the 'walls' when the dog walks around or re-positions, & the trays themselves *will* crack, bend, warp, rust, peel paint, etc, depending on whether they're made of plastic or painted steel.
Solid floors & bottoms mean shippers do none of that - plus they give dogs a sense of security & privacy, when they lie down in a shipping crate, they are hidden, & the only place with a clear line of sight is the crate door.

Wire crates are meant to expose the dog on all sides, inescapably - that's why they're used at shows. Passersby can see the dog from all angles - there's zero privacy, U are trapped in the open.

If U're not in the USA, there are loads of classified-ad websites - PreLoved & GumTree in the UK, e-Bay all over, etc.
Put up a WANTED ad for a cheap crate! - she's a 12# dog, a large cat-carrier sized airline crate will fit her.


https://www.pettravelstore.com/petma...o-crate-small/

brand-new on Amazon, this 21 x 15 x 16 air-legal shipper is $45 -
used, it would run about $22 to $25.

https://www.amazon.com/Petmate-Kenne.../dp/B003WQTT1A

here's the same size for $40 with free shipping, brand-new:

Boston CraigsList, next size up, USED ONCE for air-flight - $30.
https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/pe...406300166.html

Check around - i think U'll be surprised. The local shelter in Hampton, VA, sold used cat-carriers for $5.

Pinscher in German literally means "biter". So we have Dobermann's Biter, the Standard Biter, & the Mini-Biter.

MinPins are like terrierrrists, they are snappy & reactive - but all dogs, of any breed or mix, chew - all their lives. It's self-soothing behavior.
Some need to chew multiple times daily, which usually indicates either external stresses or an anxious personality; others want to chew now & then, but it's not a pressing need, every day.

Next time U see a working GSD, especially a cop-K9, watch their repetitive actions - bark & bounce in the rear of the cruiser, squeak a toy a thousand times, chew-chew-chew a bumper till the resin squeals, circle while barking, etc.
They're often stressy dogs, & getting "stuck" on a behavior is common.
