While it may sound like a contradiction, the FCI describes the Fawn Brittany Griffon as muscular and bony-- which we take to mean they are lightly muscled for stamina; they stand 19-22 inches at the shoulder with weight in proportion with the aforementioned description. Their characteristic feature is their short-medium length shaggy coat that should be some shade of fawn, golden wheaten or red; the coat is always harsh. They have long, dropped ears and a long tail carried slightly curved.
The intelligence of this breed is fairly high. You won't have to spend a ton of time and effort training them; this is especially important when hunting since they tend to be obedient. First time owners will find this an easy introductory breed.
Members of this breed are great family dogs due to their affectionate, loyal natures. They should be friendly with other dogs and visitors, however, due to their hunting instincts they will need early socialization to live with small, non-canine pets.
Griffon Fauve de Bretagne dogs are moderately active and do best with a nice big yard or property to run and play. They will need an hour of daily outdoor exercise in the form of long walks, hikes, jogs, trips to the dog park and, of course, hunting time! Failing to meet the exercise needs of your dog may result in destructive behavior.
