Affenpinscher
The Affenpinscher is thought to be one of the oldest toy breeds. It appeared in Germany during the 17th century and its' name is derived from the German Affe (ape, monkey), due to it's curious Monkey-like expression.

The Affenpinscher of the 1600's were larger than the modern dog standing at about 30 to 33 centimetres, and they came in colours of grey, fawn, black, tan and red and often had white feet and chest. The Affenpinscher today stands at about 25 centimetres and comes in colours of black and grey.

The Affenpinscher was first bred and kept as a form of pest control in kitchens, granaries and stables, as they proved effective at keeping rat numbers down.

Affenpinschers are active, adventurous, curious, and stubborn, but they are also fun-loving and playful. The breed is confident, lively and affectionate towards family members, but their loyalty towards them also makes them very protective of them. Affenpinschers can be somewhat territorial when it comes to their toys and food, so they are not recommended for households with very small children. This dog is generally quiet but can become very agitated if it feels under threat, showing no fear toward any aggressor.
