Small indoor dog – smart, energetic, strong, short, small, agile; she attracts attention with her almost human gaze. There are two types of coat: wire-haired and smooth-haired. With the exception of the coat, there is no difference between the two. If you stick to generally accepted standards, the Brussels Griffon is an ugly dog, but it is surprisingly attractive for its personality, which is why this breed is loved wherever it appears. It does not come from noble or ancient breeding lines, and yet it is one of the most original and unusual breeds. Although the Brussels griffon belongs to the “Toy” group, there is not even a shadow of effeminacy in it; on the contrary, he is all from the tip of the snub nose to the “cheerfully” set tail breathes with carelessness. And no matter what fate is in store for the breed, the Brussels Griffon will always remain a delightful Belgian street shooter.
The chest is wide and deep, the brisket is easily identifiable; the chest protrudes slightly when viewed in profile. Ribs well sprung. The back is short and straight, the loin is strong and only slightly arched. The croup is straight and only slightly sloping. The withers are slightly raised. Format – square, determined by the ratio of the length of the body from the protrusion of the shoulder-blade joint to the ischial tuberosity to the measurement from the withers to the ground.
Alert, outgoing, sensitive, observant, inquisitive, important.
