Brussels Griffon Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Griffon Belge, Griffon Bruxellois, Belgian Griffon
Breed Group: Toy Group Height Male: 7-8 inches (18-20cm)
Breed Size: Small Height Female: 7-8 inches (18-20cm)
Breed Origin: Belgian Weight: 6-12 pounds (2.5-5.5kg)
The Brussels Griffon comes to around 7-8 inches in height and is also 8-12 pounds in weight. This small dog comes in two varieties - one is the rough coated Brussels Griffon, and the other the smooth coated Brussels Griffon. The rough coated version has a wiry, harsh coat, and the smooth coated variety has a short, close fitting coat. The coloring of the Brussels Griffon is black, red, or black and tan with some white markings. He also has protruding yes, and this is a feature that could lead to various eye infections. The Brussels Griffon has a docile and meaningful expression.

Alert and intelligent, the Brussels Griffon is a delightful toy dog that is ideal for a companion dog. Spirited and curious, this is a dog that can be very comical and entertaining when he wants to be, but will also be happy to snuggle up on the lap of his owner. These dogs are independent and can have something of a manipulative streak if not properly trained and managed, but he is also sensitive, intelligent, and fun to be around. The Brussels Griffon does get on with children, but is better around older children who are more considerate, as boisterous younger children could put him in danger due to his small size.

When it comes to strangers the Brussels Griffon may be friendly or nervous depending on his personality. He tends to get along with other pets, although he may be way of and even aggressive with strange dogs if he feels challenged by them. The Brussels Griffon is a lively and obedient dog, but doesn't like to be teased. These dogs are better suited to those with some experience of dog ownership. The Brussels Griffon can also have a jealous streak, and when it comes to his toys and food he can be very possessive. Training the Brussels Griffon should be okay providing you have confidence and use the right training methods, but this breed is difficult to housebreak.

The Brussels Griffon originated from Brussels in Belgium, and this breed used to be found hunting vermin in stables. In the 1880s the Brussels Griffon was introduced in England and America. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1910.
The life expectancy of the Brussels Griffon is around 12-15 years. There are a number of illnesses and health problems that are associated with the breed, and this includes luxating patella, Legg Perthes, seizures, heart problems, and cataracts. The parents of the Brussels Griffon puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
