The Affenpinscher is a small dog with a harsh, shaggy coat, and longer hair all over the face. It is a smaller version of a working terrier and therefore is not a delicate dog. It has a square-body, with a deep chest and round head with a pronounced stop. 

The lower jaw is undershot, protruding below the dog's short nose. The black eyes are prominent and rounded. The neck is short and arched and the limbs are straight and well boned. The tail is carried high and docked to two-thirds its length. The hairy ears are customarily docked, pointed and erect, however some countries have banned docking of animal's tails and ears.

The coat is usually black or dark gray, but tan and red are also acceptable. The undercoat is slightly curly. Affe, the prefix of the breed name. Affenpinscher, can be translated as monkey and even the breed standard calls for a monkey-like expression.

Health Problems: Some are prone to fractures, slipped stifle, PDA, open fontanel and respiratory problems in hot weather.
