The Affenpinscher breed of dog is German in origin going way back into the 17th century and was mainly used for catching rats. The name originates from "affe" in German which means monkey face which this dog does have.
The Affenpinscher can be active, affectionate, stubborn and at the same time a lot of fun to be with. They are not very good with young children as they can be quite territorial and possessive. They need good training to ensure they behave well.
