Hopefully an Affen puppy
will be in your future; however, it is important to
realize that there are usually not a lot of puppies
available. Affenpinschers are rather an "uncommon" breed
so there are not as many born or registered in a single
year as there are in more "common" or popular breeds.
other Toy Dogs, often have small litters - a litter of
one puppy is not uncommon. Many breeders have people
waiting for their puppies, so you may need to contact a
breeder to put your name on a "waiting list".

Many breeders will not
ship puppies to new homes as they are quite small. It
will most likely be necessary for you to make a trip to
the breeder's home to pick up the new addition to your
family. If you are willing to wait and make the trip to
get your new puppy, you will not be sorry...an
Affenpinscher will make a wonderful, loving, fun-loving
addition to your household.
Additionally, we suggest
that you learn as much as possible about the breed to be
sure they will fit well with your family, living
arrangements and lifestyle. Our web site is an
excellent place to start - with our articles on
Affens & Obedience, and
Puppy's First Year.
For more information on
breeders and puppy availability, please refer to our
Breeder Referral List. See our
Criteria for Breeders Directory. (Attention
ACA members: If you would like to be included on

In addition, there is an
Affenpinscher rescue organization which sometimes
has dogs available.
