Brussels Griffon

Brussels griffins appeared in Belgium, where they were very much appreciated for their ability to catch mice. They were especially popular among the owners of stables, since these dogs at some inexplicable, internal level are in good harmony with horses. They were kept both in private stables for home ownership and in the stables of city horse taxis (they called us cabbies).

In the creation of the dog, the Brussels Griffin was attended by the Affenpincher breed, a toy English spaniel, and a pug was also used to create a smooth-haired type of griffin. Affenpincher radically influenced the size and wavy texture of the coat, and the influence of toy spaniels is especially noticeable in large and very expressive eyes, the rounded shape of the head and the peculiar lower jaw.

By the end of the 19th century, the Brussels griffin became popular not only as a dog for hunting Continue reading

Welsh terrier (Welsh Terrier)

The Welsh Terrier, or, as it is also called, the Welsh Terrier, is considered one of the oldest terriers on the planet. Although many unknowingly consider it a reduced copy of the Airedale, in fact, this is not so. Its history can be traced by graphic evidence and statuettes – various drawings, paintings, tapestries, etc., as well as some records. At first he was known as a black and tan wire-haired terrier or Old English terrier.

After all, every farm, stable, butcher’s and tavern shops all needed such a versatile and healthy animal.

Usually, this breed was classified and demonstrated at exhibitions as an Old English Terrier, however, Continue reading

Bichon Frize (French lapdog)

The Bichon Frize dog breed is a small, snow-white lump that looks more like plush toys. If you add a pink ribbon to the look, it will be simply impossible to distinguish between them. As often happens, scientists cannot say exactly how and where these dogs came from, however, there is a widespread opinion among dog breeders that the Bichon Frize came from a barbichon, also called a barbet.

The barbet was larger, and it is still unclear how it lost more than half its weight, decreased, and most importantly, with whom these dogs were bred to get modern Bichons. The first written records of the Bichon Frize dog breed began in the 14th century, when French marine magazines mentioned small white dogs living on the island of Tenerife, and that many French sailors took them with them to their homeland.
