Breed personality, characteristics & temperament
A bit of a clown is one way to describe the Lowchen. Its happy disposition and willingness to please makes them the ideal companion animal. Despite its diminutive size, the Lowchen is robust and full of energy, yet sensible and not hyperactive.
Compatibility with other pets
Very good. Will accept other pets if introduced at an early age.
Robust and generally sound with few medical problems, they are ideally suited to families with limited space. They do require regular grooming and exercise.

This breed is long coated and requires regular grooming and clipping.
If you are seeking a loyal and charming house dog and prepared to accept the need for regular grooming, then the Lowchen might well suit you.
