The Leonberger is a rare breed known for its gentle, loving nature. In 1830 Heinrich Essig, of Leonberg, Germany, began to develop a new breed of dogs by crossing the Newfoundland, the St. Bernard, and Pyrenean Mountain Dogs. This resulted in very large dogs with a lion-like appearance. During both World Wars the breed was almost wiped out. Today, the Leonberger is an excellent family dog. He is neither shy nor aggressive. As a companion, he is agreeable, obedient, and fearless in all situations of life.
