Hello world! Welcome to Adopt a Griffon

These last years I have been interested in discovering the unknown (at least to me) world of Griffons. Looking for information in books and online, I found that not a lot of pages comment on this type of dogs. In fact, Griffons are a mysterious and ignored group of dogs. Through the years they have been used for hunting so there is a lot of information dealing with their hunting skills and their capacities for working.

But all this was not what I was interested in. When I met my basset fauve de Bretagne girl, I discovered a great family dog, loving and patient , a nice little doggie, good with kids and excellent with other dogs. But people didn’t even know she was a specific breed, they didn’t know anything about her character, care, history or advantages as a family dog.
