About this Breed

The Brussels Griffon is a rare little guy that comes bursting with personality. They were developed in 19TH century Belgium to catch rats in the stable. This breed quickly climbed in status and become the companions of Belgian nobility. The Belgian Griffon, while small, can be quite hyperactive. They make wonderful family pets, but training must begin at an early age to combat stubbornness. Their bushy beards and upturned faces make them a real looker.
