The Swedish Vallhund is felt to be one of the authentic Swedish breeds, although there is a possible relationship with the Welsh Corgi.

Swedish Vallhunds are hunting dogs with a reputation for vigilance and energy. These small, powerful canines have lively reactions and know no fear. In their native country they are held in high regard as being tenacious, loyal and extremely friendly, making them excellent companions to their human families.
