Characteristics of the Belgian Griffon

Like the Brussels Griffon and Brabançon the Belgian Griffon has an almost humanlike, quizzical expression. He is an intelligent cheerful dog with a terrier-like disposition. He is affectionate, willful and high-strung, but charming. Lively and curious, they love everyone. This breed loves to be spoiled. The Belgian Griffon is good with other dogs and even with cats. They make good watchdogs and obey quickly. They do best with older considerate children (like me). The Belgian Griffon is a sturdy toy dog of square proportions with a domed head, undershot jaw, very short nose and lustrous eyes. The head is large in comparison to the body. The Belgian Griffon has a black and tan semi-long, wiry coat with fringe around the face. Size and weight are approx. 26 cm and 5 kg. He has a beard and moustache. The eye is very large, black and round. The eyes must be isolated and projecting. The ears are half-lines. The tail is cut to the two-thirds.

Nero, one of a kind

Nero joined us in July 2003. Such a tiny little dog he was. He is a delightful chap. He steals food, he snores like a big man and adores his boss. Special care has to be taken of his eyes. They have to be washed on a regular basis. Otherwise, he is healthy. He enjoys his daily walks and thinks he can catch ducks twice his size... For inside the small packaging there is a real BIG dog...

Since he was a puppy mill dog he needed extra guidance at first but managed wonderfully to fit in and behave. He is best friends with his older brother, Arno.
