    I met one the other day in pets at home, first I thought she was a corgi until I saw her face!
    She was lovely.
    I can't seem to find much info about them apart from obviously they are swedish and a spitz type.
    Are they related to corgis? She had a really 'husky' look about her face.

    I told the owner I had never seen one before, and asked if they were hard to get in this country, he said they were still quite rare and they travelled to bristol to get her.

    I think they are lovely :)

    We actually looked into getting one of these when my niece was younger and needed a small dog to take in the Junior Handling classes. They have a lovely temperament - really nice little dogs.

    How spooky is this?
    I have never heard of these dogs before I read this post last night and....
    walking in Stockgrove Park near Leighton Buzzard this morning saw 2 of them. I asked the owner what they were because they looked like the picture and she said Swedish Vallhund!!
