Finnish Lapphund

A hardy, energetic and somewhat less vocal Spitz-type, developed to work in the harsh climate of Lapland, the Finnish Lapphund is still used to herd reindeer, sheep and cattle to some extent today; although, in recent times, he has become more popular as a companion and watch dog.

Intelligent, brave, calm and faithful, the modern Finnish Lapphund is a direct descendant of true working dogs and as such he retains a strong herding instinct, a self-reliance and a love for the active outdoor lifestyle.
