Affenpinscher Puppies

The Affenpinscher is a sturdy little terrier, characterised by his “monkeyish” expression. He is comical, intelligent and sometimes smug and stubborn. Although he is a member of the toy group, he has a personality more like some of those of the terrier group. The Affenpinscher is lively and self-confident dog, full of mischief, but a loyal companion to his owners.

Affenpinschers are curious dogs with fierce loyalty and affection towards their owners. They have an amicable nature and a deep devotion that makes them an excellent companion and a supreme watch dog. They can do well in the city or in the country. They do need to be watched around larger dogs since these diminutive dogs don’t seem to understand that their size is a disadvantage when picking a fight with someone bigger.

Although an energetic and active dog, the exercise needs of the Affenpinscher can be met with indoor games or romps in the yard, or with short walks on leash. It enjoys playing outside, but it cannot live outdoors. Its harsh coat needs combing two or three times weekly, show dogs require stripping. Their coat does not moult it sheds which is minimal with regular grooming.
