  1. Hello Ivana, I am very grateful for this beautiful article you wrote about the Griffon Korthals I have been looking for some time and reading some things about this breed, I have bred other breeds of hunting dogs, I am currently considering purchasing a copy of the Griffon Korthals. But my problem is hit with a pure strain, because there are people selling their puppies as pure and they have often been crossed with other breeds.
    I would appreciate it if it is possible on your part to point me to a breeder who has this breed, and that sells dogs.
    Thank you
