Eir is our Norwegian Culture Treasure ❤
She is a Norwegian Lundehund.
A Norwegian breed that is really
special in many ways.
The Lundehund has a great range of motion in its joints, allowing it to fit into and extricate
itself from narrow passages. Dogs of this breed are able to bend their head backwards along
their own spine and turn their
forelegs to the side at a 90-degree horizontal angle to their
body, much like human arms. Their pricked, upright ears can be folded shut to form a near-
tight seal by folding forward or backward. The Norwegian Lundehund is a polydactyl: instead
the normal four toes per foot, the Lundehund normally has six toes, all fully formed, jointed
and muscled. Some specimens may on occasion have more or fewer than six toes per foot, but this is then outside the breed standard. Eir has 7 toes
on one of her back feets 🙂
There are not many of them in the world and we really look forward to try to do the best we
to take care of this fasinating breed :) We really cant wait to show her and hope that we can breed her too when she gets old enough for that 🙂
