 The Griffonshire is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Brussels Griffon and the Yorkshire Terrier. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Griffonshire is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

The Griffonshire may present any combination of Yorkshire Terriers and the Brussels Griffon temperament. They can be very quiet, sweet and loving. They are occasionally playful and may have burst of energy.

They are low maintenance. Some may inherit the wiry coat of the Brussels or the smooth coat of the Yorkie. They do not shed and a brush or comb once or twice a week is all that is needed to remove dead hair. They have very little odor if any, although because they have the beard like the Brussels it tends to get dirty when they are eating and may require you to wipe down the mouth and beard area occasionally.

The coat may be a combination of the wiry Brussels and the smooth Yorkie. Occasional trips to the groomer are needed to trim the feet, face, belly and private areas.
