Norwegian Lundehund Information

Norwegian LundehundA rare, ancient breed, the Norwegian Lundehund is a small, agile pup who was once used to retrieve puffins off the coast of Norway. He is extremely athletic with loads of energy and can be a bit stubborn at times.

Norway’s little hunter possesses characteristics not found in any other dog. For example, six toes on each foot; pointy ears that fold closed; and the ability to push his head backward until it touches his backbone – something very important for puffin hunting. For coloring, their dense coat ranges from white to red to black and several colors in between.
