Default Greetings from Sweden

Hi all

My name is Isabel and I own two Swedish Vallhunds (Gizzmo and Bessa), a cat (Smulan) and a parrot (Mimmi), we all live in Sweden.

The Swedish Vallhund is a rare ancient breed with ancestors going back as far as the Viking era. The Swedish Vallhund is an amazing breed, itīs a small but very strong dog with a huge personality who loves to work. It doesnīt mater if itīs about herding cattle, agility, obedience or search and rescue, you can use the Vallhund to all of it.

Best regards

Hi

They look like small German Shepherds and are just the coolest. The ideal size for dogs is 33 cm (12,99") and for bitches is 31 cm (12,21"). Varietion of 1 cm over or under the ideal height is permitted.

Have a nice day

Thank you Chazhound

Not many have, even here in Sweden the Vallhund is considered as a rare breed.

Best regards
