Norwegian Lundehund

Norwegian Lundehund The Norwegian Lundehund breed is known as stubborn but playful. But once fully trained they make excellent pets. It's a fact that they have 6 toes and they can turn their head 180 degrees. The Norwegian Lundehund's Behavior Source: the Dog Breed Info website Recommended for: pet, working dog The Norwegian Lundehund dog breed is one of the most "primitive" breeds. Therefore it is as stubborn as it can get and obstinate with a mind of its own. Norwegian Lundehunds will require consistent training. Socialization will also be important to get them acquainted with other animals and people. Once properly housebroken they make fine, energetic, and playful companions and are very tolerant with boisterous children, only as long as the children are recognized as part of the family. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.

The Norwegian Lundehund's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia. Country/Region of Origin: Norway Original purpose: hunting Name: from 'lunde' which is Norwegian for puffin and "hund" for dog; also known as the Norsk Lundehund, Norwegian Puffin Dog, and Lundehund. Historical notes: Norwegian Lundehund dogs have been hunting puffins along the coasts of Norway as far back as the 17th century. By the time World War II began, only 5 of them were left because of neglect and dog tax. Careful and intensive breeding revived their numbers back to a few thousand around the world.
