Discription taken from The Finnish Lapphund Club Page
"- - - The breed is a medium sized heavy coated spitz breed it is a herding breed, being used to herd reindeer by the Lap farmers in the cold northern part of Finland ----The Finnish Lapphund is a happy and lively breed and certainly requires at least an average amount of exercise as one would expect for a medium breed, it is too intelligent and keen to be busy to lead a totally sedentary life - - - The outer coat is very coarse and because of this does not tend to matt or knot like some of the softer coated breeds. The thick weatherproof undercoat helps keep out the rain and dirt.
Colour All shades and colours are allowed. The most common colours are different shades of black and brown, light and grey shades. In addition to one main colour, several dogs have light and/or brown colour marks. "
