Norwegian Lundehund

Average: 3.1 (7 votes)

Known as one of the world's rarest breed, the Norwegian Lundehund originated in Vaerog and Rost in northern Norway where they were first used to hunt puffins, but after the ban of hunting puffins the breed's numbers dwindled, but were saved in the 1940s. The small and friendly breed weighs 13 to 20 pounds and stands 12 to 16 inches tall. The Norwegian Lundehund does very well in a family when properly socialized, trained, and a small fenced in yard will suit them well. Also, many unique characteristics follow the Norwegian Lundehund, such as having 6 toes, a head that can turn 180-degrees, and their ears mobility.
