Affenpoo Description

The Affenpoo is a hybrid dog breed, and is a cross between a Affenpinscher and a Poodle. Affenpoo's are small dogs that weigh around 7-9lbs and usually are between 9-11 inches tall when fully grown. Since Affenpoos are bred from both Affenpinschers and Poodles, they can inherit unique behaviors from either breed.

Most Affenpoo owners claim they are intelligent and cheerful dogs that are intelligent and need very little maintenance.

Breed History

Affenpoos are hybrid dogs, which means they are bred from two different types of purebred dogs. Hybrid dogs are becoming popular because you can breed dogs with favorable characteristics of one or more other breeds.

The drawback of hybrid dogs is you cannot predict which characteristics your dog may have. For example, some Affenpoos inherit the Poodle's protective temperament, which can make that litter of Affenpoos less tolerant of other pets and small children. However, some Affenpoos will inherit the Affenpinscher's temperament and will be fine around other pets and small children.

Affenpoo are bred using any of the following ways:

  • Purebred Affenpinscher with Purebred Poodle
  • Purebred Affenpinscher with Purebred Toy Poodle
  • Affenpoo with another Affenpoo

Affenpoo Temperament

Affenpoo's are generally alert, friendly, and intelligent dogs. Since they are a hybrid dog, they can inherit the temperament of Affenpinschers or Poodles. While some Affenpoos are great with children and other pets, some Affenpoos can become grumpy if harassed, so Affenpoos are not recommended for households with small children.

Because Affenpoos are alert dogs, they make very good watch dogs that will bark at anything suspicious. Affenpoos are also fairly intelligent and can learn tricks easily.

Affenpoo Health

The Affenpoo has a life expectancy of 10-13 years. Since it is a hybrid dog, little is known about potential health problems, however, it could inherit health issues common with either Poodles or Affenpinschers.


Grooming Requirements Affenpoos have little to no shedding, which makes grooming very easy. However, Affenpoo's coats need to be plucked and it is recommended to have a professional dog groomer do this or show you how to pluck the coat yourself.

Exercise Requirements Affenpoos do not require very much exercise and can get their daily exercise by either playing or through a short walk.

Living Requirements Since Affenpoos are a smaller dog breed, they are a good choice for people who live in apartments as they don't require much space.
