Griffon, 5 Years Old

This beautiful boy is Troy, a 5 year old Griffon Bleu de Gascogne

His breed is a type of scent hound which originated in France. They make wonderful pets and considered a rare breed in most of the world. They are mainly used to hunt wild boar, although do also hunt other game too. They can have strong prey drives as you would expect but are docile dogs that make great companions.

Troy is a calm and balanced boy. He’s sociable with other dogs although he’s not fussed about playing, he’d rather have his own space, he’d be a great only dog since, unusually for a lot of the dogs we help, he doesn’t rely on the company of others. He absolutely adores his walks and he walks well on his lead at the shelter, although that could change!
