The Brussels Griffon is cheerful and affectionate little dog. They are ideal as companions for the elderly and good with young children. They are very affectionate dogs and often have a chosen person of whom they bond deeply with.
The expression on the Brussels Griffon is almost human-like. This breed has medium length hair around its face, giving the dog the appearance of a beard. Their coat can be a little course as the wiry hair gives the Griffon protection from the environment.
Origin of the Brussels Griffon
The Brussels Griffon originated in the early 1800s in Brussels Belgium. They excelled as a rat hunting dog that lived in the stables of coachmen to help prevent disease and illness. It is only more recently that they have become the pampered lapdogs that we know and love.
