Affenpinscher: All About The Monkey Terrier Dog

The origin of an Affenpinscher is quite vague. One of the few records however is found in the works of Dutch artists of the 15th century who wrote about a bearded terrier who shows some similarities with today’s Affenpinscher.

Contrary to their affectionate and playful nature around humans, Affenpinschers do not like little children. Their humorous nature disappears around kids.

If you are thinking those long hair are going to give you a tough time grooming, you are wrong. Affenpinschers are not very difficult to groom. The main task is just to keep their coat from matting.
