Lowchens are often called "little lion dogs." They were companions of Florence nobility around the Mediterranean. These outgoing little dogs are probably related to the Bichon Frise.

Lowchens are tougher than they look -- these energetic little dogs love to run and play. Some Lowchens are afraid of strangers, but they're usually good with well-behaved children and pets. They like to bark and dig.
