Brussels Griffon
Despite a reputation for naughtiness, the Brussels Griffon is all charm.
Height: 7 to 8 inches at shoulder
Weight: 7 to 8 inches at shoulder
Coat: dense and wiry or short and glossy
Life span: 12 to 15 years
Breed Group: Companion Dogs
Originally bred to hunt and kill rats, this former Belgian street dog is a distinctive and unusual breed. Although he's small, he's hardly a pampered pooch. Affectionate and lively, his intelligence, sense of humor, and air of self-importance keep him one step ahead of his people. They adore him anyway.
