All dog breeds reviews was written with the support of australian essay writing services.
The cab drivers of Brussels originally used the plucky little Griffon Bruxellois to guard their vehicles and keep down the vermin in the stables. However, with the Griffon’s strong sense of self importance and determination to be with his owner at all times, he soon managed to establish himself as a permanent travelling companion on the front seats of the hansom cabs, sitting up on a box next to the driver.
This former little Belgian street urchin has retained his impudence and cocky ways.
A hardy, intelligent dog with a happy disposition and personality in every whisker, the Griffon demands your attention, but bestows lavish affection and loyalty in return. Best suited to people who are at home during the day, he makes a first class pet for families with gentle children and a superb companion for the elderly.
Noted for his quaint bewhiskered and moustachioed face, and pert monkey-like expression, the Griffon comes in two varieties – the rough coated Griffon Bruxellois and the smooth-coated Petit Brabancon.
