This breed is a cross between the Affenpinscher and the Chihuahua. Not all of these are a 50 percent cross of each parent breed as breeders may breed multi-generations. They are small, as both parent breeds are lap dogs. Like the parent breeds, they are highly intelligent and should be trained as pups.
This breed will have either short and curly or long hair. This breed can be range from wheat in color to black. It will have the small stature of its parent breeds. The average weight is three pounds.
The Affenhuahua is good with children and very social and friendly. They are easy to train.
This dog is hypoallergenic and low shedding. It is also high energy and can be used as a watch dog or athlete. This active dog should be kept busy as boredom can lead to bad behavior.
