People have claimed this dog resembles a monkey, a clown, or an Ewok - the forest-dwelling aliens of Star Wars movies

Vital Statistics:

  • Life span: 12-15 years
  • Adult weight: 8-12 pounds
  • Adult height: 8-10 inches

What's good and bad about the Griffon?

Pros:

  • Good watchdog
  • Low maintenance - little shedding, minimal exercise
  • Bright dogs with almost-human expressions
  • Usually gets along with other dogs and cats

Cons:

  • Sensitive dogs that expect a lot of love
  • May be obstinate - he will require socialization and training
  • Rare enough breed that he hasn't been overbred, but may be difficult (and expensive) to find.

NOTE: I don’t recommend using a leash and collar for walks. Attach a leash to a body harness, not a collar. The collar is only to hold dog tags, not drag the dog around.

This is a somewhat fragile dog. Tugging and pulling on the collar around your dog’s neck can contribute to a collapsed trachea and other neck damage. Use a body harness.

Here's a good introduction to the Griffon breed.
