Norway has seven indigenous dogs that tried to focus on, but I included other breeds as well. All of the seven Norwegian dog breeds are working dogs. My favorites are the Lundehund, Buhund, and Elkhound. The Lundehund is an ancient breed used to hunt puffins along the coast over 5,000 years ago. Lundehunds are able to move their limbs 180º and have six toes on each foot to allow them to maneuver their way into the rocky cliff faces to get to the puffin nests. They would catch them alive and softly carry them in their jaws back to their owner. On a good day they could catch up to 200 in a day. Its a petite dog with a big dog mentality. Due to an outbreak of distemper in 1960 there were only six left in world. Five of those six lived on the island of Værøy within the arctic circle. So of course I had go there and photograph one of the 2,000 alive today.
