An ancient pure breed, the Swedish Vallhund (or Vastgotaspets) was the "little cattle dog of the Vikings" 1000 years ago. By 1940, they were almost extinct, but have been brought back from the brink.
A Vallhund is small in stature - 30 to 33 cm high, weighs 10 to 14 kgs, and can live to 17 years.
Intelligent, affectionate, versatile, fun-loving, they respond well to training and have proved their ability at obedience, agility and tracking.

A watchdog, friend and lots of fun,
The sweetest dog beneath the sun
