A new adventure with a great breed, the Norwegian Elkhound!

After researching this breed and purchasing a puppy as a gift for my sister in Montana, we housed her until my sister visited Iowa.  Our experience with this breed was very impacting and we just could not get them out of our minds.  Four months later we welcomed one of our own.  
The Norwegian Elkhound is bold and energetic, an effective guardian yet normally friendly, with great dignity and independence of character.  A typical northern dog of medium size and substance, square in profile. The head is broad with prick ears, and the tail is tightly curled and carried over the back. The distinctive gray coat is dense and smooth lying. As a hunter, the Norwegian Elkhound has the courage, agility and stamina to hold moose and other big game at bay by barking and dodging attack, and the endurance to track for long hours in all weather over rough and varied terrain. They thrive on companionship and will prove to be a lifelong loyal friend.

Here is Abbie at 9 weeks old, enjoying her sunbathing time.  She is so full of energy, but you pick her up and she melts in your arms.  A wonderful little girl!

The next four photos are of Abbie at 5 months old, experiencing her first real snow.  She loves it!
