I don't know the name of this dog - just snapped him or her at the show. The Lowchen is a member of the Bichon family. and shares, with the Pekinese, the name of Little Lion Dog. This is because it's always shown in a 'lion clip' complete with mane and fluffed tail, giving it the appearance of a lion in miniature. It is an affectionate, happy, healthy little dog, known in Europe for several centuries.
