The Icelandic Shepherd, or Icelandic Sheepdog, is a dog that likely descends from a Norwegian dog breed, the Norwegian Buhund. The Icelandic Shepherd is a lively and affectionate dog, as well as close to his masters.
The Icelandic Shepherd is lively and courageous. He is sociable, and children have nothing to fear from him. Very close to his masters, the Icelandic Shepherd is affectionate and has a good temperament. He is never aggressive and is always alert. The Icelandic Shepherd has a great need for space, and living in an apartment is really not possible with him. He must be able to let off steam at his ease in a large garden.
