The Broodle Griffon, also known by the names Brussapoo, Brusselsdoodle, Brussels-Poo, Griffinpoo, Griffondoodle, or Griffonpoo, is a cross between the Brussels Griffon and the Poodle breeds. The Broodle Griffon is a small breed, and its head shape and eyes may be similar to either the Poodle or the Griffon parent. Other features include short, floppy ears, solid hindquarters, and Poodle-like feet.
Since the Poodle is one of its parents, intelligence seems to be inherent in the Broodle Griffon. They also have a charming, cheerful, and good-tempered nature. The Broodle Griffon can do well with children, but as with many small breeds, parental supervision is recommended if very young children are interacting with them to make sure that they do not manhandle it.
Although the Broodle Griffon is friendly, it might have initial reservations about strangers like its Poodle parent, but warm up after getting introduced to the person. On the other hand, if it inherits the inquisitive nature of the Brussels Griffon parent, it may display defensive behavior when an unfamiliar person or dog is around.
Care and Grooming
Grooming a Broodle Griffon depends on the kind of coat it has inherited. Those with a curly coat would need brushing at least two times a week and clipping every few months. On the other hand, if it has a smooth, wavy coat like the Brussels Griffon it would need less grooming.
Although the Broodle Griffon can be high energy and have a playful nature, they have minimal exercise needs and can therefore do okay living in an apartment. They would do fine with a walk or some amount of outdoor games on a daily basis, or even a proper amount of indoor playtime.
The Broodle Griffon can be easy to train because of its intelligent nature and willingness to please its master. As with all dog breeds, it is also good to socialize your dog beginning as a puppy to avoid anxiety with strangers, other dogs, and prevent any future behavioral problems.
