Hairydog is a Norwegian elkhound

Medium sized dog, thick coat suited to cold climates, Hairydog’s colour varies from white to dark grey (Norwegian elkhounds also come in a pale sandy colour with brown tips), pointed ears, curled tail.

Brave, independent, clever, home-loving, good companion, sturdy and sure-footed, good at rounding up sheep, good guard dog, fond of barking, needs firm handling.


Skeletons of Norwegian elkhounds have been found buried with their owners in graves that are 7000 years old so these are one of the oldest dog breeds.
