The definitive history on the foundation of the Breed.

Author: Jean-Marie Van Bustele.
Translator/publisher: V.Brideau

Since the movie "As Good As It Gets" the Brussels Griffon has received a tremendous amount of attention both good and bad.  It has brought wonderful new fanciers & dedicated individuals to the breed but it has also created a DRAMATIC rise in abandoned, neglected, abused Griffs.

Backyard breeders and puppy millers have taken advantage of this surge in popularity and the breed has suffered.

1) Research the Griffon BEFORE you make a decision on including one in your life - Do you make a good match?  Do you know the health and temperament issues in the breed?

 

2) Find out what constitutes an ETHICAL breeder BEFORE you consider acquiring a Griffon.

3) DEDICATED hobby breeders (which is where YOU should acquire your Griffon) belong to Breed and All-Breed Clubs, serve on committees and have waiting lists for their dogs. They work with newcomers as mentors and develop a relationship that lasts for years.  It does not stop when the money is paid.  Contact the Clubs listed to acquire more information on the breed and a list of breeders whose membership is in good standing.

You should expect to wait.

Put as much time, effort and research into adding a Griffon or any other companion into your life as you would anything else you value.
