Default A Vallhund Owner's Hello

First off, I screwed up my username when registering... Woops.

It's meant to be Spielzeughund (toy-dog) and not Spielzeughung. A bad mistake on my part, my fingers have always been a little goofy with g's and d's...

Anyway, I hail from around Madison, Wisconsin.

I have a dog (nearing 11 months now) of a breed most people have never heard of: the Swedish Vallhund! Thought to be the ancestors (or descendants?) of modern Pembroke Welsh Corgis, they're often referred to as Vastgotaspets or Viking dogs.

They look like stubby wolves, really. They can have different kinds of tails, ranging from a curly Spitz to stubs. Very beautiful, friendly, intelligent, and hardy dogs, if a bit short. They also have a similar sense of humor to the Pembroke, though personally I enjoy the goofier antics of the Vallhund. Great companion dogs... Built for herding, guarding homes, and catching vermin.

Anyway, my pup's name is Valkyrja, and should be visible in my profile picture, wearing her Super Dog costume (taken just around Halloween). As I said before, she's about 11 months old, as she was born 5/31/13. She's here with me now as I type this.

Welcome. I have not heard of your dog's breed but I swear I've seen them more than once. Post up some pics if you can.

Ah, I was debating between that breed and the cardigan welsh corgi for the next breed I get(I decided on the cardigan). Beautiful breed It reminded me of a mini German shepherd
