An ancient Swedish, Spitz hunting dog, small in stature but with strong hunting instincts.  They are a good family companion that gets along very good with children and other pets, even cats that are members of the family.  They love their human beings.  They get along with other dogs as long as the other dog is non-aggressive.  They bark at the approach of someone but that can be controlled with commands.  They are highly intelligent and easy to train although they will get bored with repetitive commands.  It is a good candidate for agility and search and rescue work.  The Norrbottenspets is an absolutely beautiful representation of the canine world.  It is their looks that first catches your attention.  Finding out that personality, health, longevity, hardiness and loyalty comes with the package, makes them one of a kind.  It has no doggy odor.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.  Please visit NoPuppyMills.comIf you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
