Meeps is a cute and unique Brussels Griffon dog with a unique look owing to her absence of an eye, a limb, and an eardrum, yet she is a playful and cheery young lady. Meeps was spotted by a little girl and brought to her family 11 years ago.
Fortunately, the child happened to be in the right location at the right moment and witnessed the dog that resembled a bat being tossed from a car. Meeps was famished, weighing barely 2 pounds, and had a severely injured eye.
Meeps’ adoptive mother, Alesha Brandt, told The Dodo:
“She sat peacefully in the tub as my daughter bathed her and cleaned her… While she awaited his return home to take her to the veterinarian.”
Despite her tough start, Meeps is the Brandt family’s leader and takes pleasure in her unique looks; she is lively and naughty. His large hairless ears make him look like a little bat.
“His ears have never grown hair, so they feel like soft leather and like bat wings. She’s often referred to as a fruit bat since she adores bananas and oranges.’
Meeps is the queen of the home, despite her little stature. She only welcomes her brother Krum’s companionship, another griffon from Brussels, when she is chilly and wants someone to snuggle with. His best pal, a Belgian Malinois named Lech, is his best friend. Even Lech, according to her mother, is afraid of Meeps, which is rather amusing.
Meeps’ mother claims that she thinks of herself as a future bully:
“Once, he barked for 20 minutes at a fire hydrant, thinking he was an intruder.” I couldn’t bring myself to tell him the truth.
Of course, not everything about Meeps is harsh; he has a nice and loving side as well. She loves her mother with all her heart, especially when it comes to her.
Alesha goes on to say:
“She’s a ‘one woman bitch,'” says the narrator. He likes to be in my arms or on my lap and is completely my shadow. She comes practically everywhere with me.
