Griffons as Pets

Griffon Bruxellois make wonderful pets. They are devoted, loving, loyal, cheeky, intelligent and full of mischief.

They were bred over the past 600 years, originally as stable dogs and then as companions. By the 1800's they were known as a ladies companion dog.

The stable dog gives them a lively, playful, energetic and highly intelligent personality while the companion part of the history makes them  very loving and devoted, excellent at reading their owners moods and also excellent at trying to get there own way.

They are ideal as city dogs because they are small enough to take anywhere and some really do like to travel in a bag. They love to go to coffee shops and watch the passers by.

They are very intelligent and respond to positive training methods but can be stubborn if the owner tries to force them into something they don't' want .

They are gentle and great with older people. They are playful with other dogs and even cats. They are excellent companions for well behaved children but the children must be supervised closely to ensure that they do not hurt the Griffon.

These photos are of Griffons owned by club members showing them enjoying all aspects of life as a loved pet.
