Lapponian Herder

Average: 5 (1 vote)

The breed was first used by the Sami people of northern Europe to herd reindeer, but the standard of the breed went unrecognized until after World War II when Finnish and Swedish fanciers began to recreate the breed. The good-looking yet working Lapponian Herder weighs an average of 65 pounds and stands 18 to 20 inches tall. The breed is friendly, docile, but also energetic and needs a fair amount of daily exercise.
