Griffon a poil laineux
A new photo found and what a beauty.
This breed was commenly associated with the barbet and to this day you often see the name cited as a second name for a barbet and you can see why,
Main difference in the standard was that this griffon was never curly, it was considered a fault.
A great shame that it didn't survive all the challenges a breed has to deal with to still be in existance today.
