*Non-shedding in this hybrid mix could go either way. While the rough coated Brussels Griffon is considered non-shedding, the smooth coated Griffon will shed. The Affenpinscher is a breed of dog that will shed very little to no hair. So it is still technically possible for an Affen/Griffon mix to shed seasonally.


Affengriffon= Affenpinscher / Brussels Griffon

Part Affenpinscher, part Brussels Griffon, the Affengriffon could acquire their physical characteristics or personality traits from either parent and can be any ratio of the mix, 50-50, 75-25, and so on.

These breeds are very similar in both size and temperament, so the easiest way to get the characteristics that will fit in well with your family and lifestyle is to adopt an adult dog whose personality and breed characteristics are already known.

One of the best things about this hybrid breed is the commonality of this mix... They are super easy to find and there are countless on  petfinder.com and other adoption sites waiting on their forever homes!

Rescued dogs are dogs who've lost their homes through absolutely no fault of their own. They simply had bad owners, an owner who died, had to move, didn't have time to spend with them or train them, etc... You name it, dogs lose their homes for the saddest reasons.

The good news is... When you rescue, you'll get a dog whose been  cared for, housebroken, leash trained, updated on shots and medical needs, etc! Plus you'll know up front if the dog is good with children, other pets, his size, his personality.... Everything!

Mixed Breed dogs are mixed breed dogs, period.

Unscrupulous dog breeders looking to cash in on the current fad of "designer dog breeds" will do and say anything to make you think that the way they've mixed their dogs is far superior than another random breeder or accidental breeding, etc.

You're smarter than that. There is no guaranteed method of forcing dogs to copulate in a manner which will ensure the best traits from each parent.

Don't be fooled.

Don't let anyone trick you into paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a mixed breed, hybrid or so-called "designer" puppy. There is no justification to buy a puppy when countless mixed breed dogs are dying in shelters by the millions every year. Learn more about mixed breed dogs and how they came to be...
