(Norsk Elghund Gra) (Norsk Elghund Sort) The Norwegian Elkhound is an arctic breed with many wolf like characteristics. Starting off is this breed’s large round and long rectangular muzzle. On their large head are two small round eyes that are bright and full of expression. Sitting on top of their head are two huge bat-like ears. A thick furry neck leads to their broad shoulders and a deep chest. Round, very small feet sit at the bottom of medium length muscular legs. On their back is their tail which is curled up into a ball and looks similar to many other spitz breeds’ tails. A thick double-coat covers their body and is extremely fluffy especially on their tail and neck. Their coat color does not vary because they have one standard color which is a gray top coat with a light under-coat and many black markings.
