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.

Does your Lowchen bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Lowchen puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Anonymous asked:
I prefer female dogs but some have said males are preferred. What is the difference in temperament for Lowchens?

If the Lowchen is of the set standard, there should be no temperament differences between the genders. However, there is an old saying for dogs in general. "If you want a good dog, get a male. If you want a great dog, get a female and cross your fingers." It is funny, but also true in some sense. If you prefer female, then get a female. But if you don't know, go to the breeder and meet the puppies as a whole and see what puppy you bond with.

As in most breeds, the neutered males tend to be more mellow, less barky and socialize with others easily. While a male will turn his head to calm another and let out a single ruff to speak to another that's annoying them, the female will carry on like she is being killed or ready to kill, much more yappy. Bitches will be bitches.

My Lowchen is 1-year-old. I brush and comb her hair every day, but she still gets knots and matts.

She still has her puppy coat. After a couple of years, she will not matt.

We are looking to breed our 5-year-old male Lowchen who is 12 inches tall and 14 inches long with a tan, grey, black and copper coat. We are in search of a female Lowchen to either mate with our dog or purchase. Every site I've looked at has shown that there are no available listings for a puppy to purchase. How can I go about finding a female Lowchen for my male stud?

The Lowchen is a pure breed not a cross or hybrid. A Lowchen puppy will always have two parents who are Lowchens!

Is the Lowchen breed hypoallergenic?

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.

Yorkshire Terriers and Silky Terriers do not have "fur". They have what is the closest similarity to human hair and are hypoallergenic. I've had the pleasure of owning Yorkie's and Maltese's.
