Facts about Swedish Lapphund
In Scandinavian legends and myths, the Swedish Lapphund is able to communicate with gods and other worlds.
Long ago, people used to crop their tails, as in the harsh climate of Scandinavia, the coiled tail was often clogged with snow and frozen to the back of the animal. The admirers and owners of this breed call their pets by no other name than "the black gold of Lapland". These canines don’t like high humidity, so in rainy weather, put a raincoat on your pet when you take him for a walk.
