A smart, curious dog with heaps of personality, the Brussels Griffon is a sweet, but sometimes vain, breed. They make for excellent companions, and love to be around people and getting pampered. They are great with other pets, but can be a bit much for young kids, as they do not deal well with the brand of roughhouse little kids tend to dish out. They can also be tricky to housebreak and are often tough to feed because of their picky appetite. Also, they love to bark.
The Griffon can be either red, black, or black and tan, with no particular color being preferred over another.
