This dog is a hybrid that was created by crossing an Affenpinscher and a Bichon Frise. Although it was intended to be an even mix, generations of breeding have mixed the proportions. The parent breed, Bichon Frise is small and compact. The Affenpinscher is wiry haired like a terrier; it is very intelligent and makes for an excellent house pet.
This hybrid is generally happy and excitable in nature; it may bark quite often. This breed is highly active and trainable.
May be tan and white, in color. This dog is undersized and has a friendly face with tufts of fur like a beard around the face and neck.
Affenchon may be allergic to fleas and pollen.
