In 2017, I started a plan, a long-term plan. A plan that would take years to see results. The plan was to grow the American Lowchen population to a level that could sustain a viable breeding population. 🧮
The strategies and tactics includes recruiting established and responsible breeders into the breed, logistically enabling existing breeders to breed more litters, encouraging existing owners to play the role of breed ambassador, and promoting the breed digitally and in person.
The mid-year 2019 AKC registration results were recently shared out, and I am beyond thrilled to show that we are projected to double the 2018 levels.
This outcome for the Lowchen could not be possible without the help of the Lowchen community. There are so, so, so, so many people who answered the call for help in so many ways. And I am grateful for the support. ️
This initial pulse check on out the breed is doing is promising, but the job still isn’t done. This will take a lifetime commitment, and let’s keep the momentum going.
