Brussels Griffon: Are you a Star Wars fan? Did you just die of adorableness the first time you saw an Ewok? I know I sure did. Unfortunately those big, mystical teddy bears don’t actually exist. (Thank you, fantasy.)
But the little creature that inspired them is alive and well in the real world!
Yep, you guessed it:
The Brussels Griffon was George Lucas’ inspiration for Ewoks.
And rightly so.
The Brussels Griffon is a rather rare breed that could use some more recognition. He’s a tiny toy dog with a huge heart for snuggles and affection.
