Traits of the Affenpinscher
As one of the oldest toy breeds, the breed’s origins are obscure. Small terriers adept at dispatching rats were abundant in central Europe by the 17th century. In Germany they were used to rid stables and kitchens of rodents. Even smaller versions of these dogs were preferred for ladies’ lap dogs, as they were able to kill mice in the home, warm their mistress’ laps, and amuse entire households with their antics. This small version eventually became the Affenpinscher.
In 1936, the AKC recognized the breed. The breed’s name describes it well: affen, meaning “monkey,” and pinscher, meaning “terrier.” In France the Affenpinscher is known as the diablotin moustachu—“moustached little devil”—which also aptly describes it!
