in Puppies Are Prozac

Cute funny Brussels Griffon

Due to the foreclosure of her doghouse, Maggie is forced to live in a pup tent.

The Brussels Griffon is a small toy dog, usually weighing between 5 to 15 pounds. The most distinguishing feature of this breed is the face: a short muzzle with the nose placed high between the eyes in good specimens; the nose set lower on dogs of lesser quality. The eyes are large and appealing. Many people see the dog’s expression as almost human while others think it looks monkey-like. The breed comes in two coats: a smooth coat like a Pug and a rough coat like a Schnauzer; and in 4 colors: red (buff to deep mahogany), belge (black hairs mixed in with red), solid black and black with tan points. An ungroomed rough coat may be matted and look unkempt. The ears may be cropped or uncropped and the tail is usually, but not always, docked short. For more information, please refer to the National Brussels Griffon Rescue.

NBGR is in desperate need of foster homes in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Missouri, Kansas, California and Texas. If you would be interested in fostering a Brussels Griffon, please fill out an application form: Foster Home Application
