How much do you know about Affenpinscher puppies? Do you have any idea what kind of work does a team of Affenpinscher breeders put in? If you are interested to find out more about Affenpinscher dogs or about Affenpinscher breeders and their success, then you are recommended to visit the following website:! You will not regret it!

Affenpinscher is a type of terrier-like breed of dog which dates back to the seventeenth century, its name being derived from “Affe” (a German term which can be translated as “monkey”). It is said that since the year of 1600, these types of dogs have become well known. Originally, they were slightly larger (about 12 to 13 inches), being coloured in gray, black and tan, fawn, gray and tan, as well as red. It was very common for these Affenpinscher puppies to have a white chest and white feet.

In general, an Affenpinscher has the weight between 6.5 to 13.2 pounds (2.9 to 6.0 kg). If you are interested in the appearance of the Affenpinscher puppies, then you ought to keep in mind that they carry a rough coat (when it is not groomed) and a monkey-like look. Over the shoulders and head, the shaggier coat forms a mane with a much shorter one over the back and hind quarters, being rather wiry. These dogs are said to not shed, yet each and every hair shaft in the dog coat grows from a hair follicle. Whenever the hair shaft dies, the dog’s hair is shed. Therefore, to say that the Affenpinschers are non-shedding is incorrect.

Affenpinscher puppies usually get along with other dogs and pets. They are very affectionate and playful, yet stubborn. What is interesting to point out is the fact that this breed is very confident, but very protective of his masters. The Affenpinscher dogs love to be around large families with kids, acting vivacious, curious and loveable. If you want to get your own dog, you have to be very careful, due to the fact that this type of breed becomes easily bored. You are recommended to vary the training and the games that you wish to play with it.

At the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City, a five-year-old Affenpinscher dog called Joe (Banana Joe V Tani Kazari) has been named “best in show”, being the very first time that this type of breed has won this title at Westminster. Speaking of winning, you are recommended to visit the following website:! Why? The reason is due to the fact that this online portal has a lot of information about top UK show Affenpinscher breeders, but also about the breed itself. These Affenpinscher breeders have a lot of experience in taking care of puppies and making them available to good homes or shows.
