The Swedish vallhund is a sturdy little herding dog that very much resembles the Welsh corgi. In fact, breeders believe the two were interbred at some point in the 8th or 9th century. (source)
Vallhunds are a herding breed with an insulated double coat, long back, and short legs like a corgi, but with a lovely, wolflike colour palette. They can have any length of tail, from a stubby nub to a long, brush-like spitz plume.
This smart and energetic dog breed loves having a job and hanging with people. A great companion for active families!
Puppy love, Nordic style
