This human-like toy with a sophisticated personality weighs no more than 12 pounds and has enough personality for ten typical dogs. The intelligent, loving, and hilariously self-important Brussels Griffon makes a sympathetic companion for sophisticated adults.
You get a tremendous personality in a 5- to 15-pound bundle with this breed. You’ll fall in love with him with just one glance into his huge, human-like eyes. Griffs come in two coat types—rough like a Schnauzer and smooth like a Pug—and four colors: red, black-and-reddish-brown (called belge), black and tan, and black. Old folk songs gave them the moniker “bearded dogs” due to their black muzzle and whiskers. The Griff has a worldly, French-speaking philosopher’s look about him thanks to his large, dark eyes that are regarded as being “almost human,” as well as his fringed beard and mustache that covered his small muzzle. Griffs are available in either smooth or rough coats in four different colors: red, black, and reddish-brown (also known as belge), black and tan, and black. The Griff has a robust, sturdy build and trots with the intent of someone who knows what he wants. Griffs are perceptive, gregarious, and trainable. Despite being animated and active, their small size and delicate personalities make them unsuitable for engaging in rough play with children. They have a low threshold for loneliness and will remain devoted to one specific person, giving them a lifetime of love and joy.
