This German companion dog needs a very specialized diet in controlled portions to maintain a healthy weight. Today's Löwchen generally receives less exercise than did their ancestors and need to have their calorie intake monitored to ensure they do not gain excess weight.

Originating in the damp and cold climate of Germany, the Löwchen was revered for its loyal companionship. The Löwchen is depicted in artistic masterpieces as far back as the 15th century. Kept exclusively by the gentry and elite, the Löwchen was renowned for the lion cut style of its coat. Some history suggests that the Löwchen may have accompanied travelers from Tibet to northern Europe. In 1973 the Löwchen was the rarest breed in the world with only 65 puppies registered around the world. Loyal and quiet, the Löwchen is a playful and active dog and makes a wonderful house pet.

No doubt the Löwchen historically survived on a diet of table scraps. Today, the Löwchen is still referred to as a Little Lion Dog and revered by families across Europe and the United States. The Löwchen was brought to the United States via England in 1971. In 1972 the first Löwchen club was formed in the United States. Today the Lowchen enjoys success as a show breed in Germany with recognition in agility and obedience. Today the Löwchen generally need not venture past the family kitchen for a full meal. Given their reduced activity levels compared to their ancestors, the Lowchen requires fewer calories to maintain a healthy weight.
