Where to find a Brussels Griffon
Keep in mind that the Brussels Griffon is a very rare breed. You should expect to wait for a well raised pup bred by a AKC Breeder of Merit. You may also want to consider an older Brussels Griffon or perhaps your heart will be melted by a much treasured rescue. Since the movie “As Good As It Gets” was released, the number of Griffons in rescues and shelters as well as those bred by puppy mills has escalated dramatically. Please do your homework and read about the breed. You should also reach out to ABGA members who can answer your questions and provide additional information so you can make an educated decision.
Puppy or Adult
Breeders will typically raise puppies from a litter to see which ones meet their
breeding program standards. This time-frame can be anywhere from 3 months of
age to 18 months. This time-frame is critical so that the breeder can decide which to
keep for the future or which ones to place in just the right home.
The National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc., is a non-profit organization which maintains a national rescue league for Brussels Griffons abandoned, lost abused or for other reasons must be re-homed.
