Norwegian Buhund

The Norwegian Buhund is one of the Spitz dog breeds. The skeleton remains of 6 Buhunds were found in an ancient Viking grave excavation in Norway. Vikings often buried their treasured and cherished belongings with them because they would be important in the afterlife. The dogs that traveled alongside the Vikings would also be buried and believed to continue to carry out their duties in the afterlife. The Norwegian Buhunds of today were nurtured in western coasts of Norway where they held the role of herding sheep and guarding farms. Buhunds are trained to aid the hearing impaired, perform various police duties and work with livestock. They are agile, have the desire to please their master and learn quickly. The Buhund enjoys the company of people, but can be left alone at times.
