If your Affenpinscher/Shih Tzu mix doesnt bark it means she is scared or not feeling comfortable in your house

Some dogs just dont bark - I would disagree with the previous answer totally.

I have a Boston Terrier that is ten years old. She has only barked 3 times in her entire life. She is a very happy and well adjusted dog, she just doesn't bark.

I had an affenpinscher that did not bark until I had him at a friends house. Her dog barked at him, so he practiced it a few times until he had it down. Very funny!

I don't think your question can be accurately answered because your pup is not purebred. Affenpinschers can be quite vocal!

My baby was 4 months old before he tried to bark! Now I wish he had never learned, although he is a GREAT watchdog! We love him to pieces no matter what! He is a great little clown and keeps us laughing and being amazed at his smartness daily. What a blessing this pup has been to us. He also was raised with a small child. He LOVES kids! I think if they have been raised with a child they have no problem.
