A truly unique breed, the small, agile Norwegian Lundehund, which was bred to hunt Puffin birds, features six toes on each foot, prick ears that fold closed and the ability to bend his head backward to his spine. A loyal protector, the Norwegian Lundehund is an affectionate, friendly family companion. This spirited spitz requires moderate exercise to stimulate his intelligent, inquisitive mind.
