This breed gets its characteristics from both the Poodle and the Affenpinscher. The Affenpinscher is a very active small dog that loves to play. They are very loving dogs. The Affenpinscher is an extremely intelligent dog but it is also a stubborn dog that can be somewhat difficult to house train. They are very protective of their food, water and toys. This breed is also fearless. They need to be watched around larger dogs since these diminutive dogs don’t seem to understand that their size is a disadvantage when picking a fight with someone bigger. The Affenpinscher will not back off if attacked by another dog, regardless of its size. To learn more about the Affenpinscher, go to Choosing an Affenpinscher.
Recommended for seniors, singles and families with older children, the Affenpoo loves being with humans and older children who know how to handle them gently. However, the Affenpoo is not a good choice for households with small children. They can irritate easily and are known to snap at small children who annoy them.
If you travel a lot or spend long hours away from home, the Affenpoo may not be the right dog for you. This breed is very social and requires lots of interaction. When bored and left to their own devices, the Affenpoo may become lonely and depressed, leading to destructive behavior and barking.
