  • a.k.a. Lapponian herder. A dog breed "indigenous to the Lapponian tundra, where it developed... Due to its great courage in the face of wolves, its speed over snow, its resistance to Arctic climates, and its herding instincts, it has become a valued and irreplaceable colleague of those who raise reindeer. There is also a variety with long hair, but the herders prefer the agile short-haired variety." (Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs, 1980)
