  • The Affenpinscher is one of the most ancient of Toy dogs.
  • In German, Affenpinscher means "Monkey Terrier."
  • "Terrier-type" with a "monkey face", Affenpinschers are the bred-down versions of terriers designed to keep rodent populations to a minimum on stables and farms.
  • The Affenpinscher is believed to have been a major influence in the development of many of the smaller rough-coated breeds of continental Europe, including the Brussels Griffon and the Miniature Schnauzer.
  • The Affenpinscher was admitted to the AKC Stud Book in 1936.
  • The area around Munich, Germany, eventually became the heart of Affenpinscher breeding.
