Such lovely muzzles please people more than 500years. But, unfortunately, in our country their popularity is low, despite the simplicity in keeping these pets, their natural charm and friendly nature. What is hiding under the harsh name "griffin"? Dogs of three breeds immediately bear this proud name: the Belgian and Brussels griffins and the Brabanson birds, also ranked among them. As it becomes obvious from the titles, the homeland of these little dogs is Belgium, although they are popular for the most part in the USA.

What do these dogs look like? Brussels and Belgian griffins refer to longhaired breeds. The first of them is a red-haired dog with a tough hair and a beard, which gives his face a sly expression. The Belgian griffon dog differs from its Brussels counterpart except in the color of wool - for Belgians it should be black with tan. And so, all the same bulging eyes, all the same beard and cheerful disposition in stock. Unlike them, the third brother-griffin differs smooth short hair. The representatives of the Brabanson breed are like very small boxers. Especially noticeable is the similarity, if the pups are stopped by ears.

Disney's adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland"is perhaps the best illustration of what a griffin is. A dog-flower in the garden of talking plants is exactly him. His round head, framed by ears and beards, resembles a corolla of pansies. Here's a funny griffin. Photo (a dog with a cute face) shows how beautiful he really is.

For people of the age, such dogs will not cause trouble, since they try to keep the pace of the host's walk at a walk and do not try to play pranks like representatives of many other breeds.

They also love to sleep on the knees of their owners.
