Icelandic Sheepdog Breed

The Definitive Guide To Icelandic Sheepdogs

Noted as affectionate, playful, and confident, this breed was introduced to isolated Iceland by the Vikings in the 9th century and likely bears a striking resemblance in behavior and build to its ancestors today. They guarded flocks from birds of prey and other predators, and so are still vocal. They’re perfect for an active family who feels doorbells are out of date.
