 Part  of  life's  poetry  is  the sharing  of  love.   It is easy to see  this  darling breed  has a  poet's  spirit.  Brussels  Griffons inspire  love.  They  are a  small  dog with the  regal stature  of  a lion and  a heart  of  platinum.

 Links to more follow, including an internet community for you to share photos and messages about these beloved family members.  
They'd love for you to participate!



Brussels Griffons are sensitive, affectionate dogs.  The rough coated ones such as my guy, look like a live teddy bear.  Hmm, a griffy-bear?  They need time, caring, and  loving homes.

What profession would my dog have?  A wise and kind  King or maybe a psychologist/family counsellor.  He's  always showing how sharing and loving a being can be.   He's fair in the sharing of his attention and affection,   going from one of us to the other to shower us with his  love.  On the other hand, he might prefer being a Chef since one of his favourite times is mealtime!


    
TYPES
     Griffons come in  two coat types, rough and smooth.   There are four colours:  red, black, black and tan, and belge (which is black and reddish brown mixed, usually with black mask and whiskers).  These pictures are of my  rough coated fellow.

There are three categories in Europe:

1.  Griffon Bruxellois (Brussels Griffon) is the red rough
2.  Griffon Belge (Belgian Griffon) is a rough in black, black and tan rough,  or black and reddish-brown.
3.  Petit Brabancon is the smooth coat. (pictured

In the U.S. and the U.K. all three are shown as Brussels Griffons.
