These are medium sized reindeer herders and also used for hunting (tree barkers) and some light sledge .......
The exact name is Finnish Lapp Dogs (double p), in Finnish Porokoira, meaning Reindeer Dog
Northern Scandinavia - Kola Peninsula and even west Siberia
Very social breed. As you probably know herders have to read your mind before you yourself are conscious of what you want them to do
That does in no way mean that they don't have their own will. They can be quite stubborn at times, pretending that they don't know. Can be recommended as a family dog.
Must spend some hours outside every day
Strong canine instincts, wolflike
