We also know the Belgian Griffon as the Brussels griffon or the Petit Brabançon . This alert and curious creature likes to follow its owner throughout the house and sometimes has a bit of separation anxiety. This inquisitive, smart teddy bear is a real childhood friend. You can also purchase a Belgian Griffon perfectly as a playmate for other pets, even small ones. Aggression is totally foreign to them.
The characteristic soft, rosy coat is the pride of the Belgian Griffon. The almost human, cheerful appearance is the appeal of this little four-legged friend. On average, a Griffon weighs about 5 kg. A height of about 28 cm is normal. These dogs are also known for their typical ring beard around the muzzle and their rough-haired ‘sunglasses’ around the eyes. In those places their fur is a bit darker and longer than in other places.
It is important to regularly clean the beard of the Belgian Griffon. Brushing his coat daily is certainly not an unnecessary luxury to prevent tangles and mats. One of the great advantages of this dog breed is that they can also perfectly settle in smaller homes. But without a garden to romp about, they do benefit from a short walk now and then. These capons are easily distracted so it is a challenge to keep their attention during their education or training. But the griffon is by no means contrary. It is a sweet companion animal that lives on average between 12 and 15 years old.
