Löwchen is a small-size outgoing breed who is highly affectionate toward his people.

This non-sporting dog can live up to 15 years if you provide enough care, love, and proper nutrition.

Löwchen is a German name that stands for ‘little lion’. This small breed of only 14 inches and 15 pounds is extremely portable, and as such perfect for apartment living.

This mini lion has a full mane and plumed tail and coat that comes in several colors and color combinations.

Beneath all that coat is a dog of the strong and sturdy body that is well-balanced. This is a toy breed that will always excel in dog competitions such as agility and obedience.

These are purebred dogs who will bark. This trait is something that neighbors usually won’t appreciate a lot. Since this is a compact dog that is easy to train, the Lowchen may be a great choice for first time dog owners.

They are true companion dogs and they are the happiest when they get to spend time with their humans. Expect to spend at least 20 minutes per day exercising your Lowchen.

Long walks when it’s not too hot or too cold is a perfect outdoor time for a small Lowchen.

They do not shed much, but they will require regular brushing to prevent tangles and mats. They may be shy of new people, which is why it’s so important to socialize them at an early age.

If you have a yard, you might learn that Lowchen loves to dig.

So, before you get any dog, make sure that you do proper research on the breed. Once you have all the information on the breed, you can welcome the Lowchen into your home.
