Danish-Swedish Farmdog

Although only officially recognized very recently, this little farm dog's roots go back to at least the beginning of the last millennium.

About the Danish-Swedish Farmdog

This solid, typically Scandinavian breed has plenty of skills, with good potential in fields as diverse as search and rescue in disaster areas, and driving and herding cattle.

The morphology of Danish-Swedish Farmdogs is reminiscent of some of the greatest of the terriers, including Jack Russells and fox terriers. These are versatile dogs that can perform diverse jobs such as guarding property, catching rats and providing companionship.
