Overview

German in name and French in origin, the Löwchen is an inquisitive, confident, charming “clown” with a happy temperament that endears him to all. Though small in size, the stylish Little Lion Dog, as he is called, is leonine in heart and appearance. The distinctive lion trim in which the coat is fashioned, with full mane and tufted tail, distinguishes him from his Bichon family relatives and makes him an impressive sight from city streets, parks and beaches to show rings. Effectively “saved from extinction” after World War II, the Löwchen dates back to the 15th century and today enjoys a following of ardent admirers who are dedicated to the breed’s preservation. Written by world-renowned breeder/judge and author Juliette Cunliffe, this Special Limited Edition provides an insightful chapter on the breed’s history in Europe, complemented by a special section by popular American dog author and Löwchen breeder Alice Bixler, who retells the breed’s history and development in the United States. The book also details the breed’s characteristics and discusses the breed standard. Further chapters discuss the selection of a breeder and puppy, preparing the home for the puppy’s arrival, feeding, grooming and coat care, exercise and much more. The chapter detailing the house-training process and the basic obedience commands will be welcomed by any Löwchen owner, as will the sections about behavior and solving puppy problems. Additionally, a lavishly illustrated chapter on preventive healthcare by Dr. Lowell Ackerman provides up-to-date accurate information on inoculations, parasite control, selecting a veterinarian and other topics vital to the ownership of a healthy pure-bred dog.
