From the island north of Norway, the Lundehund, or 'Puffindog' was trained for hunting puffin nests. He climbs up the cliffs or trees where the birds nests, grabs the nest avoiding the puffin beak. He puts the birds to flight and grabs the nest. To do this he has five toes, and to protect his ears from dripping water in caves, he can close them. In character he is vivacious, attentive and intelligent. The eyes are brown and not prominent. The ears are upright and open forward. Tail is short and carried on his back. The coat is moderately long and stiff.
Colours are black, grey or brown combined with white.
