Brusston Activity Requirements

The Brusston is a cross between the Brussels Griffon and the English Toy Spaniel. These small, short-legged dogs are gentle, affectionate, and loyal, making them good companions. The Brusston is a relatively low-energy dog, but they still benefit from a daily walk. While they don’t require as much exercise as a larger, more active dog, they do need some time outside. A daily walk or a brief play session will help keep your Brusston happy. If you are looking for a companion dog that doesn’t require much exercise and won’t compete with your active lifestyle, the Brusston might be the right fit. They are a smaller, mellow, and easygoing breed.
