Caesar is a wonderful, unusual breed called a Lowchen (Lion Dog). Although he may not be purebred, he is very close. He is bright, happy, funny and social. Gets along great with other dogs; not sure about cats. Caesar recently went to an assisted living center on a visit, and was a perfect gentleman. Very calm, happy, and loving to be petted.
Since Lowchens are not a common breed, we can only guess at Ceasar's story. Was picked up as a stray at an out of area shelter where no one came to claim him. Fortunately, the shelter did not euthanize him when he was not adopted (Shelter was being forced to euthanize for space) and he was sent to our rescue. Please read up on this unusual breed before adoption. Caesar is about 17 lbs., and is 2 years old. Caesar's adoption fee of $350 includes all services listed on our website
