Lowchen

A great family pet, the Lowchen is a happy and affectionate little dog.  They are very suited to city life – not needing too much walking and being quite happy living an apartment lifestyle.

The breed is traditionally clipped with the ‘lion cut’ and was a huge favourite among the French aristocracy in the 18th Century, when it was known as ‘petit chien lion’ – which translates to ‘little dog lion’. 

The average lifespan is around 14 years, but they can live for up to 16 years with the right diet, genetics and lifestyle.

They usually grow to about 25-33 cm in height and weigh between 5 and 7.5 kgs in peak condition.
