So you’re looking to adopt an Löwchen, or already have one?

According to the American Kennel Club, “Small dogs with enormous heart, Löwchen (the same singular or plural) stand a bit over a foot tall at the shoulder. The coat is traditionally kept in a “lion clip,” in which most of the hindquarters and tail are clipped down close to the skin. The overall effect is that of a mini lion, with a full mane and plumed tail. The coat comes in several colors and color combinations. Beneath the coat is a dog that’s strong and sturdy, but elegant and artfully balanced. A companion dog whose name is German for “little lion,” the Löwchen has been a popular pet among Continental Europeans for more than 500 years. The portable, non-shedding Löwchen is said to be affectionate, lively, and brave as a lion.”

An Löwchen typically ranges from 27.94cm to 33.02cm in height, and weighs from 4.535923700000001kg to 6.80388555kg.
