Your favorite AKC dog breed is the smooth Brussels Griffon. The Brussels Griffon is known for the almost human expression on his face. He is highly intelligent and sensitive. Even though he requires the protections needed by any toy breed, he is a total companion, bright and alert. If he feels threatened, he makes a big fuss. This breed can also be known as Griffon, Griff, Belgium Griffon, Griffon Buxellois. In the 1997 film "As Good As It Gets" a Brussels was featured and it was played by 6 different Brussels. The Brussels Griffon is a member of the Toy Group and was first recognized by the AKC in 1910. This is the perfect breed gift, telling all about Brussels Griffons. A great dog lover gift on a t shirt, hoodie, mug, sticker, magnet, button, ornament - makes a great Brussels Griffon Christmas gift.
