About Bear Hug Griffons

Welcome to the web site of our kennel, Bear Hug Griffons. 
Our names are Lonnie and Marsha’ Carroll and we hope to show you this wonderful breed of dog that we have fallen in love with, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, also known as the korthals griffon.
The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, is a very people oriented breed.  They are known for their high degree of trainability and cooperation and a great love for the field and water.  They are truly Versatile Hunting Dogs.  Griffons are at home in any venue, whether it is the confirmation ring, hunt test or agility trial.  They have keen noses and are excellent trackers.  The fun loving nature of this dog and its outgoing personality make it a wonderful family companion. 
With this breed there are a couple of things to keep in mind.  The Griffon does require some daily exercise to keep them content and calm.  They are a member of the sporting group and as such can be very active.  This is especially true in the first two years.  They also require some coat upkeep.  They are strong for their size.  And as we tell everyone, they are smarter than we are.
As Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Breeders we occasionally have Wirehaired Pointing Griffon puppies available.  We don’t breed often and we strive to breed quality over quantity.
