Known for his almost human expression, the Brussels Griffon is an affectionate, charming and curious companion and an excellent watchdog. This sturdy Belgian breed is lively, intelligent and sensitive. His coat comes in two varieties -- rough and smooth. Both varieties need biweekly brushing. Active indoors, the Brussels Griffon is suitable for apartments but still needs daily walks.
