French in origin, this spunky breed is a true European, with progenitors throughout the countries of southern Europe. It was popular in Italy, Spain, France and Germany as early as the 1500's. Its popularity continued through the 1800's. Goya is one of many artists to have featured the Lwchen on canvas. With the coming of the 20th century and the two World Wars, the popularity of the Lwchen waned. By 1960, they were granted the title "rarest breed" by the Guinness Book of World records. No longer, however, do they win the dubitable claim to fame as the "rarest breed."
