The Brussels Griffon caught quite a bit of attention last week when it won Best in Group and competed for the title of Best in Show in the Westminster Dog Show
. So, I thought it fitting to feature this cute little toy dog as the breed of the week! At a glance, the smooth coat version closely resembles a Pug, while the rough coat looks more like an Affenpinscher or a type of spaniel. Your eyes do not deceive you - the breeds are actually related!
Though the Brussels Griffon is not among the most popular breeds in America, many love this breed for its high-spirited attitude and adorable looks. Perhaps, in time, more people will catch on to this precious dog breed! Are you a fan of the Brussels Griffon? Please tell us more and submit a photo if you have one!
