She's not prone to submissiveness (is there such a word)

She's one of three breeds with most mitochondrial DNA from wolves, so beware

Torgny, good to see you and Siirka out enjoying the warmer weather. She looks well, and rather sinister in that last pic...

Robert,

Yes, we enjoy the best of the summer days, hiking, bathing in sea water as well as in lakes. Give a tap to King. Wonderful new avatar you have

Yes, she can get angry at times, mostly when she sees masters and mistresses mistreat their dogs. Not unusual, unfortunately

And those are which?

Photos can be deceiving, but I doubt she is much of a threat! I'll bet she is as nice as she looks in the first two photos (and the others you have posted in the past).

http://www.bulldoginformation.com/no...og-breeds.html

"Hunden uppstod för uppskattningsvis tio till femton tusen
år sedan. Efter det har vargar och hundar i princip levt åtskilda. Men dagens gråhund, jämthund och lapphund har alltså varg-DNA i sig"

Dogs are 10-15000 years. Since then dogs and wolves have lived separately. But

Norwegian Elkhound,
Swedish Elkhound
Lapphund
(three variants)

have Wolf-DNA, giving away their succeeding genetical heritage

Scientists do not agree on how that happened. I can translate the rest or you may use Google translate

You're right, penolta, they have never for real threatened humans - (unfortunately one might sometimes be inclined to say ) normally I do that dirty work myself; to protect my dogs that is

Very interesting (I used Google Translate), Torgny. We have had Norwegian Elkhounds for over 40 years, but only have one at this time..

Here are a couple of her pictures - she is a retired show champion.
