My Hero<3

The Norrbottenspets is a breed of dog of the spitz type. It is an ancient breed whose original purpose was a farm and hunting dog but has recently became more popular as a companion dog. The Norrbottenspets is used to hunt wood grouse, black grouse, capercaillie and hazel grouse, but also fox, marten and raccoon. Some individuals are also effective with mammals as large as moose and grizzly bear.

Norrbottenspets Hailing from Norrbotten, Sweden and Lappland/Kainuuland, Finland is the Norrbottenspets - a breed with a fun name that's a bit of a tongue-twister. These dogs make excellent hunters and some individuals have even been known to take down moose and grizzly bear! Interestingly, the breed almost died out by the end of World War I and were only saved after enthusiasts started a breeding program in the 1950's and 60's.
