10 Facts about Affenpinschers: The ‘Best In Show’ Breed

Had you heard about Affenpinschers before Banana Joe, the dog that took the Best In Show award at the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this past Tuesday?

I hadn’t either.

In fact, a first look at them and I found them comical looking, and not what I would have expected from a Best in Show pooch. However, the judges thought differently and handed the highest honor to 5-year-old Banana Joe V Tani Kazaril, affectionately known as Banana Joe.

I am beginning to think that the more you look at him, the cuter he gets. I also decided to set out and learn more about this little known breed and compiled a list of facts about this popular pooch’s history.
