Today it is difficult to say how many years exactly the Affenpinscher breed shows, although official documents date us only to the 19th century. In fact, the closest ancestors of these dogs are depicted in the paintings of Dutch artists as early as the 15th century, which is the middle of 400 years to the official date.
Here are some interesting facts about the dog which definitely makes him a magnificent breed.
