Living Area: The Briquet Griffon Vendeen adapts to city life very easily and will fit into an urban environment at a very early age. These dogs make good apartment dogs and fare well in small houses or households. They do not need to be chained up all day, as they require a steady amount of exercise to stay healthy, alert, and attentive. They enjoy staying in a kennel but will require some freedom to roam on occasion. These dogs can become particularly destructive if they are housebound for extended periods of time. They are compact, vivacious, and bold and constantly seeking adventure. As a result, they can become depressed or listless if they are not given an appropriate amount of attention.

About this Breed

The Briquet Griffon Vendeen is a medium-sized dog with a notable shaggy white coat. "Briquet" translates to medium-sized and the Vendeen Griffon is a pouplar companion dog throughout Europe. It is a harmonious and level-headed dog that is distinguished from other sizes because of its rather stocky construction. The Briquet Griffon Vendeen first appeared mostly in France at around 1946 after several wars that lost the breed in the European dog circles temporarily. The dog has been used as a team dog for hunting wild boar, and a team of Briquets won the trophy of France on roe deer in 1995. The Briquet Griffon Vendeen is a very receptive and sensitive dog. It is stocky but well proportioned with a firm snout and long, dropping ears on the sides of its head. The head is medium-sized and the dog has a medium sized snout. The tail is short and will stick straight out when the dog is alert, anxious, or happy. This dog stands tall and confident, and has medium legs in proportion to its overall height and length. This light dog is often used for hunting small deer and there are two main sizes of the species. A rough coat and compact structure define these hounds, and they have a lively bearing and outlook. They have large, dark, and expressive eyes that show very little white; they also have a naturally friendly and intelligent expression. The ears are supple and narrow, and covered with long hair. The mouth has a scissor bite that is level and consistent. The Briquet Griffon Vendeen is a happy hound, is very willing to please and rarely aggressive. In the early days in Britain, the dog was simply coined "The Happy Breed." The dog has often been considered to be a working breed, with a lot of patience and is very secure. It needs its space but will be a very valuable companion.
