A Brussels griffon or the Belgian Griffon is curious and alert and follows his owner closely. He doesn’t like to be left alone. This breed is extremely intelligent and eager to learn and is excellent with children. Especially with older children, it gets along very well. You can also perfectly combine a Brussels Griffon with other dogs, cats or small pets. They don’t have an ounce of aggression in them.
The Brussels griffon has a soft, reddish coat and usually a very cheerful, almost human expression. On average, these dogs weigh 5 kg and are around 28 cm high. They are known for their shaggy sunglasses and ring beard. Their fur is longer and darker around the eyes and muzzle.
You should regularly clean the Brussels Griffon’s beard and brush its coat daily to prevent mats or tangles. An advantage of this dog breed is that you can also keep them in smaller homes without a garden. They do need exercise, but regular short walks are also good for them. When parenting, it is important to keep their attention. This companion dog can live up to 12 to 15 years old.
