Overview
This breed is of European descent and originated in France during the 14th century. Known as the Little Lion, they were particularly favored by aristocracy. During the first half of the 20th century they nearly became extinct. However, Madame Bennert of Belgium is credited for saving this breed. The Lowchen has appeared twice in the Guiness Book of World Records: once as the most expensive dog in the world, and once as the rarest dog in the world.
Character
An active, well-balanced, and strongly built breed, the Lowchen is a mixture of calm soul mate and playful spirit. They are charming, delightful, and make excellent companions. Lowchens possess a positive and outgoing attitude, and is a dog of regal bearing and style.
Temperament
The Lowchen is extremely intelligent, affectionate, and sociable. This breed is loyal, devoted, and eager to please. They are fearless, resourceful, and bold. They possess a gentle and sensitive nature, and firmly attach themselves to their family. This breed is good with children, other dogs, and other household pets. The Lowchen is fragile in appearance but is actually robust and tough. They may display arrogance or a strong-willed attitude. They are extremely protective of their family and will bark to warn of danger or visitors. The Lowchen is cheerful and playful, but is not hyperactive or high-strung.
Care
The classic leonine look of the Lowchen requires a professional grooming every four to six weeks. The unclipped hair must be combed daily to prevent tangles and mats. Bathing should be done on a weekly basis. It is important that sunscreen be applied to the shorn area to prevent sunburn. Lowchens are generally healthy, although they are prone to subluxated patellas, eye irritations caused by hair, and skin irritations on the shaved areas.
Coat
The Lowchen has a soft and silky coat texture. It is typically trimmed to resemble a lion. Their back end is sheared to the skin, and a tuft of hair is left on the end of the tail. The ears are left long and fringed. If the coat is not trimmed into the lion cut the fur is long and wavy; never curly. The Lowchen coat color comes in various combinations and changes numerous times over the dog's life span. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Training
The Lowchen's high intelligence and willingness to please make them easily trained. They excel in agility and obedience. Early socialization is important for this breed. They respond best to gentle, fair, fun, and consistent guidance. Proper training will discourage their tendency to bark excessively and curtail their tendency to dig.
Activity
This breed loves long walks, daily jogs, and hiking. They especially enjoy "off leash" time where they have the opportunity to run freely. They are suitable for apartment dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise and ample play sessions. A securely fenced yard is nice but is not essential to the Lowchen.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Lowchen puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Is the Lowchen hypo-allergenic?

No dog is truly "hypoallergenic". However, the Lowchen - being related to the Bichon, Maltese and Havanese - is less likely to provoke allergies than many other breeds.

Lowchen should not have underbites. It is highly unlikely that your rescue is a Lowchen. It is a rare breed in this country and breeders are extremely careful where they place any puppies.

Our dog is a rescue and we were told she was a terrier mix. Now that she is a year old there is no dobut that this dog has a lot of Lowchen in her. Only "off" thing is an underbite. She came to us via a rescue group "PUPS" and they found her in a kill shelter in Stockton CA. Sweet, sweet dog.
