    Norwegian Lundehund |Norway|

    Norwegian Lundehund |Norway|

    The thoroughly unique Lundehund developed in geographic isolation on the Norwegian Lofoten Islands and is a product of natural selection and adaptation, free from the influence of other breeds. The breed takes its name from the Norwegian word, lunde, which means “puffin,” and was used as a puffinhunting dog. Lundehunds have five three-jointed toes and at least one two-jointed toe, all fully muscled, which makes them excellent rock climbers. They are also flexible, which enables them to navigate difficult, tight rocks while carrying a heavy bird. Lundehunds require lots of socialization as they can be naturally shy. They are also intelligent and independent, and can be difficult to train. The breed barks a lot and has a natural small-prey drive, but these dogs make wonderful companions for patient, experienced homes.
