Are you a fan of small, quirky looking dogs with a big personality? Then the Affenpinscher may just be perfect for you.
Affenpinschers are cute and naughty, brave at heart and very lively. They love to play with other dogs, kids, pets or anybody/thing that comes their way.
If you are looking for a pet that always steals the show, then this breed could be for you, as they are sure to provide a constant stream of entertainment.
Some countries call Affenpinschers “the little devil dog who wears a moustache”. This breed’s funky looks underline its big personality: the underbite, bushy eyebrows, moustache, flat pushed-up nose and hair around the eyes are just some the quirky features that make up its extravagant looks.
Affenpinschers can be quite stubborn and are not that easy to train. But they love their pack and will stick by you when out on walks. They are fine with living in an apartment or house with a garden, as long as they get walked daily.
To keep the Affenpinscher’s coat looking good and not completely wild requires regular brushing. A trim twice a year is recommended.
