BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Affenpinscher is a smaller version of a working terrier and therefore is not a delicate dog. It originated in Germany in the 16th century, and the Affenpinscher name is derived from the German affe (ape, monkey) and Pinscher (terrier) because of its monkey-like expression. Their strong character and sporting instinct made this breed particularly useful to kill rats and mice in kitchens and on farms. Extremely intelligent and affection with people their naturally scruffy-looks makes them appealing and is often considered the "class clown".

COLOR
Black, gray, silver, red, black-and-tan, or beige.

COAT
The coat of the Affenpinscher is dense and shaggy, which is coarse and harsh. It is approximately 1 inch in length on the shoulders and body. Is head, neck, chest, stomach, and legs have a longer and less harsh coat.

PERSONALITY
The Affenpinscher has a terrier-like personality, they are a combination of charm and spunk, but unlike most terriers, they tend to get along with other dogs and pets especially when they are raised with them. They possess observation and thinking process, and can display sensitivity and gentleness. They are annoyingly playful, affectionate and amusing. The Affenpinscher are not recommended for very young children as this breed has a tendency to guard and protect their food and toys, however this friendly little dog enjoys being with its family. A mark of its terrier blood is the tendency for the Affenpinscher to become hyper excited, they will become aggressive and fearless toward anything or anyone they perceive as a threat and it may unwisely challenge large dogs and other large animals.

CARE
The Affenpinscher requires minimal grooming, brushing and combing weekly is a must. Occasionally stray hairs can grow in the corners of the eyes and cause irritation, they should be removed immediately. Do not clip is harsh coat to short because this will ruin it for many years. These dogs are sensitive to temperature extremes and like any short-nosed breed; the Affenpinscher may suffer from respiratory problems in hot weather. Its tiny size and fearless nature can lead to broken bones and teeth and may require special care.

TRAINING
Not particularly trainable the Affenpinscher require firmness and consistency, and may be difficult to housetrain. The crate training method can be recommended for this breed. The Affenpinschers are capable of astonishing agility and learn commands very quickly, but do not respond to repetition, make sure there is some variety in the training.

ACTIVITY
The Affenpinscher are excellent companion for those whose physical activities are limited. Although active and energetic is recommended for apartment life because their exercise needs can be met with indoor play sessions on a regular basis. They also enjoy a chance to run, so a small garden or yard would be ideal and supplemented by slightly longer walks at the weekends.
