The Affenpinscher ("monkey-like terrier”) hails from Central Europe, serving for centuries as loyal companion and fearless ratter. They are an inquisitive breed (some prefer to say “mischievous”) and highly affectionate toward their owners. At 9-11.5 inches tall, they make an excellent choice for apartment dwellers, as many of their exercise needs can be met indoors. They have a wiry coat that requires regular brushing, and as with all small breeds, children need to taught how to properly handle them.
