Lois St Petersburg, Florida 6/5/2014 3:27:13 PM I hate to tell you, but whoever told you that Affenpinschers don't shed lied to you. Over 20 years in the breed and almost as many finished champions allows me to testify to the fact they do shed. I have heard that they didn't shed before, but always from someone trying to sell a dog. I have also had one pet quality Brussels Griffon and she certainly shed, but I understand if you hand strip them they don't shed. With Affens you only hand strip about 2/3's of there body so there is still lots of fur to shed. With both breeds you don't normally hand strip, so they will shed periodically. Sorry to diappoint.
