The Brussels Griffon is a sturdy toy dog who is intelligent, alert, and has a terrier like disposition. Brussels Griffon dogs attract attention by their almost humanlike, quizzical expressions. They have square proportions with a domed head which is large in comparison to the body. The Brussels Griffon dog's pout gives him an almost human expression. To some viewers he resembles a miniature Boxer. There are two types: Rough-Coated (harsh wiry and dense), and Smooth-Coated or Petit Brabancon variety (short, straight, glossy), both making a fine companion. The Brabancon needs less grooming. Brussels Griffon dogs come in red, a mixture of red-brown & black, black & tan, and solid black. Ears are generally cropped and the tail is docked and carried high, though cropping the ears is optional.
