A true Northern spitz, the Norwegian Buhund is a moderately sized, square dog with prick ears and a tightly curled tail. Bred to herd sheep and guard livestock, this self-confident, alert breed is an excellent watchdog. He is cheery and affectionate, making him an ideal fit for active families with children. Highly energetic, the Norwegian Buhund needs plenty of exercise daily, and his easy-care coat requires minimal grooming.
