Adopting A Friend

To learn more about the Brussels Griffon, please visit this link Is a Brussels Griffon the Right Breed for You?

If your application indicates the Griff you wish to adopt is a possible match, all references will be checked, and a telephone interview will be done with you by the Griff's rescue coordinator. If at that point both parties agree this may be the perfect match, a pre-adoption visit will be done at your home before any adoption is finalized.

You may also be interviewed by the Griff's foster family, because they will want to assure each of their foster Griffs is placed in the right home. This interview also gives the hopeful new adoptive family the opportunity to ask more specific question about the Griff they are interested in so that both parties can decide if the Griff will fit in with the adoptive family's life style.

If the adoption is approved, you will then be asked to sign our adoption contract. Please read over the rules and regulations required for adopting one of our adorable Griffs Adoption Contract.

Please keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger. Under no circumstances will we ship any of our Griffs to their adoptive home.

Breed Description The Brussels Griffon is a small toy dog weighing between 5-15 pounds. He comes in two coats, a smooth coat like a Pug, and a rough coat like a Schnauzer. He comes in four colors. Red which can be from buff color to deep mahogany, belge which has black hairs mixed in with red, solid black and black with tan points. The ears may be cropped or uncropped of various size and shape. The tail is usually docked short.

The most distinguishing feature of this breed is the face. He has a short muzzle with the nose placed high between the eyes in good specimens and the nose is lower set on dogs of lesser quality. The eyes are large and appealing. Many people see the dog’s expression as almost human while others think he looks monkey-like.

An ungroomed rough coat Brussels Griffon  may be quite hairy, matted and look very unkept.
