Who Is Brussels Sprout?
Brussels Sprout is a social media sensation with over 177,000 followers on Instagram. He’s a smooth-coated Brussels Griffon who’s adored by his legion of fans for his perpetually pouty expression and impressive trick repertoire.
Aside from performing over 30 tricks and cued behaviors, Sprout spends his days walking on the beach, napping in the sun, and playing with tennis balls. It’s a leisurely life for this good boy, and he loves every minute of it! But life hasn’t always been smooth sailing for Sprout.
A Difficult Start in Life
Sprout was diagnosed with syringomyelia, also known as a chiari-like malformation, in 2018, when he was just two years old. Brussels Griffons are predisposed to the condition, which is a neurological disorder that results in the formation of fluid-filled cavities in the spinal cord. Over time, the disorder can cause a wide range of symptoms, including pain, weakness, and loss of balance.
Thankfully, Sprout’s mom, Sigrid, was quick to get him the help he needed. After consulting with a neurologist and starting him on a course of medication, Sprout began to show signs of improvement. And although the road to recovery has been long, Sprout has never lost his positive attitude or zest for life.
Sprout’s Wisdom for Pup Parents
Now that Sprout is feeling better, he’s decided to share his hard-won wisdom in a brand-new book, The Good Boy’s Guide to Being Good. Written from the perspective of Sprout himself, the lighthearted guide is packed full of humorous real-life anecdotes and tips to help dogs live their best lives alongside humans.
He provides helpful hints for navigating the outside world, emphasizes the importance of canine manners, and a whole lot more. There’s even a section on learning simple, yet unique, tricks that are sure to impress!
And the best part? Each tip comes complete with a human translation so you can apply Sprout’s lessons to your own life and improve your relationship with your four-legged friend. You’ll also find plenty of adorable and entertaining photos of Sprout enjoying life (and pouting) to keep a smile on your face.
