Description

The Affenhuahua is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Affenpinscher and the Chihuahua. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"Her name is Bethann's Anna Banana Maria K. She is registered with the ACHC as an Affenhuahua. She is the mix of a purebred Affenpinshcer and a purebred Chihuahua. In the picture Anna is 9 weeks old. She looks more like an Affenpinscher than a Chihuahua, but has the attitude of a Chihuahua LOL. Great hybrid!"

"This is Gizmo, an 8-week-old Affenpinscher / Chihuahua mix weighing in at 2 1/2 pounds. But someone forgot to tell her she's small! She's a fearless mighty dog in a little dog's body. She's so adorable and sweet and cuddly...after she's through roughhousing with my English Mastiff and Schnoodle!"
