Brussels Griffon Character

This is a cheery little dog which is surprisingly sturdy. What it lacks in size in more than makes up for in personality, they are lively and charming companions. Very friendly although they can be wary of strangers and despite their size they still make good watchdogs. Easy to train they like to perform tricks and are very clever dogs. They like children and love to be part of a family
