The 3 Faces of Brussels Griffon
The Brussels Griffon actually has three different types, the Griffon Bruxellois (rough), the Griffon Belge (black or red and black) and the Petit Brabançon (smooth). In the USA we call them all Brussels Griffon, regardless of coat color or type, in the UK they are all called Griffon Bruxellois, again, regardless of coat color or type.
But the FCI differentiates them as such: The Griffon Bruxellois or red Griffon; The black, black & tan and red mixed with black, or Griffon Belge (black) Griffon Belge (black & Tan) and The Petit Brabancon (red), or smooth-coated Griffon that may differ in no other way except color and coat.
Confused? I am. But one thing I am sure of...no matter what the various kennel clubs call the Brussels Griffon, I call them delightful!
Be Still My Heart!
Full Disclosure, after years of being enamored by smooth Brussels Griffons I have one in my lap! Shann's Shamrock at Jackpot! aka Larkan (means Little Wild One in Old Irish) joined our family in July of 2019. His breeder is a long-time friend of mine who also has bred top-winning French Bulldogs for decades (I make us sound old-she's not!). Shann's Brussels Griffons & Frenchies is her kennel prefix. You might spy him in some of the product photos...Of course, one was not enough and Shann's Cinnabar at Jackpot! soon joined the crew. She is the sweetest love bug and keeps Larkan in line! -Kathy
PS - I have no idea what got into me on the 3 Griffs (Larkan in middle, Cinnabar on right, some innocent stock rough Griff) at Coachella or Burning Man or whatever image above. It made me smile.
