These cute little pups are unfortunately prone to a number of diseases and health issues. They also don’t tend to live as long as most other breeds of dog. Another reason to think twice about affenpinschers is they can be fierce.
That little body packs in a fair amount of strength. They can be vicious with children or smaller animals and they don’t like to have their toys taken or be petted roughly, making them an especially bad idea if you do have young kids in the house.
