Leonberger - CZAR
by Anita Watts


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. Patinas for this sculpture can be customized to match the markings on your own dog. "The Leonberger" may be created in a lighter patina, while "Czar" below was created to match a specific dog. This sculpture is mounted on a custom made walnut base with an Absolute Black Granite inlay, with the title laser cut into the side of the base.
