The origin of this breed can be traced back to 14th Century. During the 17th to 19th Century the Lowchen tended to be a  fashion dog and status symbol, aristocrats and clergymen embellish themselves with them. In 1969 the breed was registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the rarest breed.

Although in the FCI standard the Lowchen is for use as a companion dog, it is a breed for everything. That the Löwchen are not over bred luxury dogs, as is proven by the success in Agility. The breed is definitely very athletic, tough, persistent and highly intelligent.

They combine  all the features necessary for a companion dog: Affectionate, very lively, small but not too small, exudes pure joie de vivre, in one word, irresistible.

With a combination of elegance, the noble character and unexpected sportiness Lowchen is attracting  lately more and more dog fans. Like any long-haired breed also the  little Lion dog needs regular care, brushing and bathing, Lion clip is mandatory only at shows. The Lion clip  gives the otherwise fluffy small dogs – the  beautiful appearance of small lions.
