Norwegian Elkhound

Comrade to the Vikings, guardian of lonely farms and saeters, herder of flocks and defender from wolves and bears, a hunter always and a roamer with hardy men, the Norwegian Elkhound comes down to us through more than six millennia with all his Nordic traits untainted, a fearless dog and friendly, devoted to man and the chase.

He has great endurance, is bold and energetic. Friendly, but an effective guard dog.

Height- males, 20 1/2 inches at the withers, females, 19 1/2 inches. Weight for dogs about 55 pounds; for bitches about 48 pounds.
