Broodle Griffon Characteristics

The Broodle Griffon is a quirky hybrid mix between the Brussels Griffon and the Poodle. The result is a dog that is friendlier and healthier than its parents with all the same loyalty and intelligence. These are happy companion dogs who enjoy spending time with their humans in any capacity. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

Also referred to as the Brus-a-poo, Brusapoo, Brussels Poo, GriffenPoo, Griffen Doodle, and Grifen Poo, the Broodle Griffon is a breed of many names. These dogs can stand anywhere between 8-14 inches and weigh between 9-15 pounds. These dogs can come in a variety of colors depending on their heritage.
 
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Broodle Griffon was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Broodle Griffon carries the good traits of its parents but typically doesn't suffer the same diseases as the Brussels Griffon or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding.
 
It is important to note that some dogs who weigh less than ten pounds believe they are much bigger than they actually are, and are not afraid to challenge larger dogs. Just be sure to keep an eye on your Broodle if they’re being introduced to a large dog for the first time!
 
In general, Broodle Griffons are super intelligent, quick to learn, playful, and affectionate. They can adapt to many homes, and are great for anyone, from new dog parents, retirees, or big families. 
 

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
