NORWEGIAN ELKHOUND



From his ancient heritage as a hunting and guard dog companion to the Vikings, the Norwegian Elkhound is a fearless hunter of moose and other big game in Scandanavia. This scent hound is a sturdy, medium-sized, gray dog which remains relatively unchanged in breed type for thousands of years. This hardy, intelligent dog is fiercely loyal to his master while maintaining his independence. Norwegian Elkhounds were first imported into this country in the early 1900's. Today, they continue to be versatile as companions to the active family and as competitors in the breed, obedience and agility show rings.
