General Breed Information

The first Griffon was presented in 1880 at the Brussels Exhibition. During the 17th century, the Griffon was kept by cab drivers to help them get rid of pests in their stables. Because of the breed's lovable personality, these dogs were used more often as companion dogs. There are three varieties of the Griffon: the Brussels Griffon, the Petit Griffon, and the Belgian Griffons. The breeds used for the development of the Belgian Griffons include the Irish Terrier and Yorkshire Terrier. Belgian Griffons is recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, the Continental Kennel Club, the National Kennel Club, and the America's Pet Registry, Inc.
