Description: The Norwegian Buhund is an ancient breed with likely ancestors dating back to 900 A.D. In Norway, six canine skeletal remains were discovered in a Viking grave at the Gokstad excavation site and are believed to be related to the modern Norwegian Buhund. In ancient times, these beloved dogs traveled with the Vikings and were buried with their owners with the belief they would still perform their duties - which included providing protection - in the afterlife.
