Breed a Brussels Griffon with a Yorkshire Terrier and you have a puppy called a Griffonshire. Griffonshires were first bred in the decade of the 1980s. These small dogs possess some of the best qualities of each of their purebred parents. The Griffonshire belongs to the hybrid group.
Griffonshires are intelligent, lively, and protective of their families. If a Griffonshire is socialized from the time it’s a puppy, then it’s likely to interact well with children.
Male Griffonshires can grow to a height of 10 inches while females can grow to be 9 inches tall from their feet to the top of their head. Males can weigh as much as 10 pounds whereas a female’s top weight is 9 pounds. At 9 weeks old, a Griffonshire weighs 2 pounds, and this dog is fully grown at around 10 months old.
Griffonshires have a few common health issues. One of those is Retinal dysplasia. Retinal dysplasia is essentially when the dog’s retina doesn’t develop properly. A puppy’s eyes have to be looked at via xray to determine if it has Retinal dysplasia. This is an inherited condition that doesn’t have treatment as of yet.

A veterinarian can help an owner to determine what is causing the allergies, then explain how to treat them. Patellar luxation is a third common health issue of this hybrid. Patellar luxation is essentially a dislocated kneecap. This condition can be treated with physical therapy or sometimes surgery. The most common health issues include:
