Norwegian Buhund Information

Norwegian BuhundCould this dog get any cuter? The Norwegian Buhund features the typical fox-like face of the Spitz breeds, along with pointy ears, a turned-up tail and an impossibly adorable smile. The breed is smart, confident and oh-so sweet.

As the name implies, the Buhund originated in Norway where he helped herd livestock and served as a watchdog for Vikings. Highly intelligent and easy to train, the Buhund is often used today to as a guide dog or for police work. At the end of a long day of work, he loves to curl up by his owner’s feet
