FEATURED DOG:  Lowchen

The Löwchen or Little Lion Dog (German: Löwchen, "little lion"; French: Petit chien lion, "little lion dog") is a breed of dog. A small dog, they are considered by some registries as a toy dog and by the American Kennel Club as a non-sporting dog.

The Löwchen's coat is long and flowing and comes in many colours. The coat should not be thin and fluffy like a Bichon Frise, but wavy with a mix of thicker hairs amongst the fine ones. This allows for a flowing coat that is not frizzy or fly-away, and a Löwchen coat should not be harsh like many terriers. The Löwchen does not shed, and this breed has very low allergic effects, and are considered hypoallergenic.[4] The head of the Löwchen is one of its most important features, with its relatively short, wide muzzle, broad skull, lively round eyes, and pendulant ears. They can come in all colours, including brown, that allow for dark eyes and nose. The head, when in proportion to the body, is neither too big nor too small, but helps to emphasize the friendly, regal, and leonine personality of the Löwchen. The litter size is usually between three and six puppies.

Hogan is a purebred Lowchen dog, in full coat, who loves to play fetch. Set to a "catchy" tune...lol.

A friend of mine is getting a new Lowchen puppy in June. The puppy is black with tan eye brows and tan feet. Since my friend is a groomer, she will be able to keep the dog looking lovely. Her other dogs have been Portuguese Water Dogs, which are medium sized non-shedding dogs, but as she is getting older, she wanted a non-shedding smaller dog. I think the Lowchen will fit in nicely with her Porties.

Here is a picture of what a black and tan Lowchen looks like.
