The Affenpinscher is typically an excitable, sociable, and sometimes impish breed. They are a great companion when properly socialized. They can be stubborn, and are not always great with children, but for a patient adult looking for a smart, funny dog, the Affenpinscher is a great choice.
Black, gray, black and tan, red, silver and belge (mix of red, black and white hairs). Some white hairs and small white patches on the chest are acceptable in show dogs.
