|Why do you want to breed him?
Is he a finished champion, or has he titled in some performance event? What are the known potential health problems of Brussels Griffons? Has he been screened for them? Were his parents? And their parents?
You would also need to require the same of the female--and no, "vet checked" is not enough. Every breed hasits specific tests that should be done, and there should be focumentation the you csn show the owner of the female, and that the female's owner can show you.
If you don't own the female, any puppies will belong to the owner of the female, who will also be the breeder of record. You'll only get your pick puppy. Depending on the contract you negotiate, you're not likely to have any say in what happens to those puppies.
If you buy a female to breed, you'll have the sole resposibility for finding safe, responsible homes for any puppies you do not want to keep. You'll also face the risk and burden of all the things that can go wrong with pregnancy and whelping, up to and including the deaths of the female and all the puppies. Or you might lose the female and the puppies survive, and you'll be hand raising your litter.
Many of the things that can go wrong, including the need for a c-section, can get very expensive.
