This typical Spitz-type dog is a square-shaped breed that is a little smaller than average. Their straight, pointed ears emphasize their alert, frank expression. The tail is carried firmly curled over the back.Bones of dogs strongly resembling modern-day Norwegian Buhunds were found in a Viking grave, suggesting they were held in high enough regard to be buried alongside their master. The Buhund was used to guard farmsteads, which is where their name comes from, and they were expected to continue doing this in the afterlife. Due to their shepherding qualities, Norwegian Buhunds have long been called upon to herd and guard sheep in Norway. The Norwegian Kennel Club only officially recognized the breed in 1943.
