AKC Brussels Griffon
DAD: Black & tan rough weighing 9 lbs
MOM: belge rough weighing 12 lbs
She is headed to California!!!
MOM - LT is 1/2 European (dad is an import from Lithuania) and 1/2 US genetics (our personal line) DAD - XAVIER is 100% European as he is an import from Imgosbull Kennel in Moscow. European Brussels are a little longer legged, a bit heavier typically but with less knee problems, less birthing issues and pretty faces in my opinion. This litter is 3/4 European in genetics.
This is Sweet T. She is a belge rough coated pup. She is sooooo spoiled. She is out of a large litter of 6. We had planned to keep this girl and put her in the showring; however we found as she grew she has a small inguinal hernia that will need to be fixed at time of spay. We will not give breeding rights with her.
Sweet T has the best personality. She is friendly, outgoing, into everything, and constantly making me laugh.
Sweet T has the short rough coat of her mother. I do not have to shave LT (mom) ever. I do pluck her hair coat often to keep her in tip top wiry hand stripped coat. She is not going to have a long flowing soft hair coat.
Sweet T is not shy, and is currently weighing in at 5 lbs at her 18 weeks.
As a breed - Brussels Griffons are easy keepers with very little health issues. However they do not handle heat well as they are short nosed. They need air conditioning and indoor living. They require a little grooming - either a comb out weekly or a shave off every 3 - 4 months to keep them from matting. They are needy little dogs that prefer most if not all your attention LOL. They are fantastic little indoor house dogs that will worship you once bonded like you are their whole life. This is not a breed you can just ignore. If you do not want a dog ON YOU - you do not want a Brussels Griffon. They are often called VELCRO DOGS.
They can be difficult to house train and require time and consistency. They DO train and faster with a doggy door and crate training. AKC has some great suggestions in this article to make the process easier and smoother. https://www.akc.org/expert-advice/training/puppy-training/the-ins-and-outs-of-potty-pad-training/
Brussels are intelligent, trainable little dogs that make great life companions. Typical life expectancy is 10-12 years.
If you have ever wanted that special bond with a dog that will worship you for their entire life.........look at the Brussels Griffon!
DO NOT BE SCAMMED!!! If you are interested in purchasing a puppy off the internet from ANY breeder - use some common sense. If the deal sounds too good to be true.....it is. As for fraud control please ask your prospective breeder for SOMETHING. A video call is best - you can see the puppy live and almost all breeders now have that technology with FB Messenger, Google Duo or Skype. If they do not then I recommend a picture of your name on a piece of paper with the date with the puppy standing next to that picture. If a scammer has stolen a picture he/she will not be able to do that for you because they do not have the puppy. Or references - a legitimate breeder will always be able to provide a reference from another buyer. There are just as many scammers stealing my photos to scam individuals as there are scammers taking innocent client's money. I don't mean to scare anyone. Everyone needs to protect themselves when purchasing anything through the internet.
