Havanese and Lowchen comparisons

Is there anyone who owns a Havanese who also owns or has owned a Lowchen? I see the obvious differences in the breeds, but what about personality, and other traits? I have not owned a Havanese yet, but have owned a Lowchen. Just thought I would ask. Thank you!!!

I can't think of anyone here offhand who has a Lowchen. The havs, for the most part, have delightful personalities. They are lovers (if my boys are any indication). They're little clowns, and many are lap dogs. They don't shed, though you have to keep up with grooming or . . . mat city. I'm sure you would love them.

I have never owned a Lowchen but Dash has one in his agility class. I know him well but he is the only Lowchen I know well. He is very friendly and outgoing and cute but he is very hyper too!

If you go to this video clip at about 3:20, you can see them interacting.

Amanda, is the Lowchen taller?

The Lowchen looks like the legs are longer. I wonder what it would like look if it didn't have the lion clip. Your dogs are great agility characters!

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

yes, that reminds me of my Lowchen, he was very active and hyper. I am gathering that Havs are a little lower key? It was great watching your three with the agility training. Isadora is great! Thank you for responding. Flynn

I watched Dasher in the snow, and he can keep up with any Lowchen!!! So darling.

I also think they look a lot like a Havanese. Flynn, what your Lowchen 'active' most of the time? Cicero has his RLH's a couple of times a day, but he is a lap dog and low key most of the day. He loves to pounce and toss his toys in play, but not hyper.

yes, my Lowchen was active most of the time, playing with his buddy. I am not sure all Lowchen are that way. I am looking forward to meeting your little boy, he is so cute!
