You might say the affenpinscher has a face only a mother could love. Commonly called a "monkey dog" for his monkey-like mug, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC), a lot of this pooch's personality comes from his unique appearance. He often looks like he just rolled out of bed and, like a loner, is generally quiet. He's always aware of what's going on around him, though, and can be a little suspicious of others.

The affenpinscher is a rare breed you won't see every day, and he's often misunderstood due to his odd looks. He really does love affection and has a good attitude, although he'd rather play indoors than out. This canine might not look like the other playful pups, but once you get to know him, he'll keep you constantly entertained with his antics.
