Have you ever seen Affenpinscher photos before? This toy breed is adorable to boot, and they will make a pretty good family dog. On average, they’re affectionate with their family, good with kids, and good with other dogs. However, when it comes to meeting strangers, they believe everyone is their best friend. This doggo will make a great watchdog, but if you’re looking for a guard dog, this pup isn’t it.
This purebred is loyal, curious, and silly. So, there will never be a dull moment. They are also strong-willed and confident. It’s said that the dog owns you and not the other way around. You don’t train your Affenpinscher. The two of you will become friends instead.
Also known as the “monkey dog” or “ape terrier,” Affenpinschers will make a great family dog and companion. They are highly adaptable and can live in apartments. They’re small enough and have moderate energy levels that can easily stretch their legs in an apartment. In addition, they don’t bark too much. They’ll only bark when needed or when they feel the need to alert you about something.
Affenpinschers do have a medium to long coat, though. It will need to be groomed and brushed at least twice per week. This will keep any tangles and knots at bay. Plus, it’ll keep the coat looking shiny, clean, and healthy. The best part is that they don’t shed much and are considered to be hypoallergenic.
