Norwegian Lundehunds are rectangular Spitz-type dogs of fairly light, supple build, with marked differences between the sexes.There are no more than 3000 Norwegian Lundehunds in the world, making it one of the rare breeds. They hail from the Lofoten Islands, which are located opposite the town of Bodø, north of the Article Circle. These small dogs were specially bred for puffin hunters. The population fell drastically after the practice was banned. The modern-day breed is based on just five individuals, which explains their remarkable homogeneity.
