Norwegian Elkhound

This dog from Nordic countries measures about fifty centimeters and has a compact, powerful and muscular body. Its members are powerful and strong, its ears are straight, erect on the head and the tail is bushy and curled over its back. Its eyes are brown with a lively expression. Its hair is thick and smooth, rather short on the body; it is longer on the neck and back of the body. They are generally grey. This is a very hardworking and enduring animal, mainly used to hunt elk. Affectionate and sociable (especially with children), it is also quite independent and will need a good education. Did you know we have found the bones of those near Vikings in tombs in Southern Norway?
