LEONBERGER CLUBS

Leonbergers, or Leos, as they are known to their friends, are loyal, outgoing “lions” who originated in the mid-nineteenth century in Leonberg, Germany. These wonderful, weatherproof family dogs are arguably the oldest of the German pure breeds. Although fairly well-known in France, Germany, and Scandinavia, they are considered uncommon in most other countries. Their luxurious double coat is lion-colored, ranging from a light sand to a rich mahogany, accented by a black mask and often black tips on the body fur. Their noble, impressive appearance is complemented by dark, almond-shaped eyes characterized by an open, gentle, friendly expression. The most interesting characteristic of the Leonberger is his lack of specialization. Although his is the body, the strength and the muscle of a typical working dog, the fact that he has been selectively bred for the balanced temperament of a house dog. . rather than for any precise working task, has gifted him with a versatility almost unique on the present canine scene. The Leonberger adapts himself well and often spontaneously to various uses; he seems to know instinctively what is expected of him.
Leonbergers have been compared to those other famous German imports, the Porsche and the Mercedes-Benz. They come from Schwabia and they are dependable, classy, stable, agile, elegant, and powerful!
