Facts on Affenpinscher

Facts on Affenpinscher

1. The Affenpinscher is called the Monkey Dog because of its face, which looks rather simian to a lot of people out there. It should be mentioned that Affe means “ape” in German, though apes and monkeys are different groups of related species.

2. For a lot of people, cats are the first domesticated animal that comes to mind when ratters are mentioned. However, it is important to note that a number of dog breeds have seen use in this regard, which happen to include the Affenpinscher. In this, it is rather similar to terriers, which have often see use for the same purpose.

3. The Affenpinscher was one of the breeds used to create the Griffon Bruxellois, which might be more familiar to some people under the name of the Brussels Griffon. While the breed bears a fearsome name, it is a toy dog with a not particularly fearsome appearance. Still, they can be quite courageous, which is something that has been known to get them into trouble when they attempt to dominate much bigger dogs in spite of their smaller appearance.

4. Speaking of which, the Affenpinscher is also ancestral to the Miniature Schnauzer, which should be recognizable to a fair number of people because of their bushy beards. This is a characteristic that it shares with other Schnauzers, which can grow their beards so long as the hair around their noses are permitted to grow out.

5. Most members of the Affenpinscher breed will sport a black coat color because that is the most common coat color that can be found out there. However, there are other coat colors as well, with examples including red, silver, black and tan, and belge, which is a very recognizable mix of red, brown, black, and white hairs.

6. The Affenpinscher tends to be fond of those who it recognizes as family members. Said fondness is sometimes expressed through its playfulness. Furthermore, it can sometimes cause the Affenpinscher to be very protective of its family members when it comes to perceived threats.

7.  Do you know that Affenpinschers are confident dogs. Unfortunately, this is something that can sometimes turn into willfulness, thus making training them that much more challenging. Affenpinschers can get bored, means that they need a varied training routine to produce the best results.

8. The Affenpinscher tends to be a territorial creature when it comes to their food as well as their toys. Due to this, they are not necessarily a good fit for families with very young children, who might not be able to deal with these tendencies very well.

11. Despite these small and timid dogs being depicted as companions and ratters in the artworks of the 1500s, the breed did not appear in any record until the 19th century!

12. The variety evolved its miniature proportions in the eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries to a larger one and became a loved ladies’ companion and pet. They particularly became popular in 2002 when an Affen won in the Toy Group category at the nationally televised Westminster Kennel Club Show.

13. A five-year-old Affenpinscher named Banana Joe V Tani Kazari was given the ‘Best in Show’ title at the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. This win was notable as it was for the first time that the breed won the title at Westminster.

14. The Affenpinscher, means “monkey-like dog” in German (where “affen” = monkey, “pinscher” = terrier). It was so named because of its monkey-like facial appearance, particularly, its huge, black eyes and a protruding lower jaw and lip. It is also called by these names: Affie, Affen, and the African Terrier.

15. The Affenpinscher has a short muzzle, domed skull, and ears that are either cropped to a point, naturally drop or stand erect or semi-erect. Its tail is short and erected.

Some of these colours come mixed streaks of gray and white further mixed with the main base colour. Some of them sport a singular white spot around the chest area. Reds tend to diminish in tone to develop a more brownish coat or one that is orangey.

18. The Affenpinscher was bred in the 1600s to eliminate rodents and vermins from kitchens, shops, and stables in Germany and Central Europe.
