Affens are mischievous monkey-faces!

According to the AKC Standard, "The Affenpinscher is a balanced, wiry-haired terrier-like toy dog whose intelligence and demeanor make it a good house pet. Originating in Germany, the name Affenpinscher means, "monkey-like terrier." In France the breed is described as the "Diablotin Moustachu" or moustached little devil. Both describe the appearance and attitude of this delightful breed. He is described as having a neat but shaggy appearance."

Here at our shop, Golly Gear, we know Affenpinschers, like all toy dogs, are real dogs - with real dog needs. That's why we specialize in products especially suited for small dogs - collars and harnesses that fit, leashes that don't weigh them down, treats that are treats and not entire meals. Our dog-loving staff will be delighted to help you find exactly the right stuff for your beloved Affenpinscher!
