Did you know the Affenhuahua comes from the Affenpinscher and the Chihuahua? This crossbreed is adorable, as you can see from these Affenhuahua photos.
This hybrid dog breed is a toy-sized designer dog. However, its origins are unknown. It came from the United States, but it’s not known where exactly and when. This pooch was bred to be a companion dog, and that’s exactly what they are. Although, if you have young children at home, socialization and training for the dog are a must.
Affenhuahuas have a “monkey face” with a crescent tail and medium-length fur that is typically rough and dense. The good news is that this crossbreed, thanks to the Chihuahua, is considered to be hypoallergenic. They also don’t require too much exercise each day. However, they are known to have bursts of energy here and there throughout the day. Due to their small size, the energy won’t last long. So, exercising needs are minimal.
Overall, Affenhuahuas will take traits from both parent breed. This hybrid may be easy to train from the Affenpinscher or stubborn like the Chihuahua. They are loyal and friendly to their family members. But when it comes to young kids, strangers, and even other dogs, cats, or pets, they’ll be wary. You’ll want to make sure your Affenhuahua is well socialized so that the two of you can go out and enjoy adventures together.
