Lowchen

Purebred Dog Breed

Description

A small, bright, and lively dog that originated as a companion breed in Pre-Renaissance Europe where ladies of the court groomed it in the likeness of a little lion. Breed characteristics are a compact, balanced body; a relatively short, broad topskull and muzzle; and a proud, lively gait that accentuates the lion cut with a long flowing mane. These quintessential features, combined with an outgoing and positive attitude, result in a dog of great style.

Coloring

All colors and color combinations are acceptable, with no preference given to any.

Temperament

The Lowchen is alert, intelligent, and affectionate with the overall qualities of a loving companion dog. It has a lively, outgoing, and inquisitive personality.

Origin

The Lowchen is an old breed, but its origins are clouded in mystery. No one can pinpoint where the breed came from, but it is known that they are descents of Maltese and Bichon Frise. Some believe the breed originated in Germany, while others believe the Lowchen to be a Mediterranean dog. What is known is that the Lowchen has been a recognized breed since the 1500s.
