The Leonberger is definitely loving, loyal, and adorable. These cuddly dogs are the real lions with a kind soul.
If you own a Leonberger as a pet, make sure to name it from our Leonberger dog names.
#1 They were bred by crossing a Landseer Newfoundland with a Saint Bernard
#2 Leonbergers were soon owned by Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Prince of Wales, King Umberto of Italy, and the Czar of Russia
#3 Leos are dimorphic, meaning that the female and male dogs are noticeably different
I actually knew that. And that is just one of the things that make this breed SO special! 🙂
#4 Males are bred to be more “masculine” and generally heftier dogs
#5 Leos don’t produce very many puppies at a time
Um, 8-10, with our record being over 18?? That is A LOT of big puppies
#6 Leonbergers are known to be a sensitive breed
That is not a Leonberger or its is a Leonberger with wrong colour (black & tan !).
