Swedish Vallhund...is a responsive and even-tempered companion. It is intelligent and affectionate. He loves attention and instinctually craves leadership. Owners are never disappointed in his multi-faceted ability or his spontaneous sense of humor. Extremely active and devoted little dog. This breed makes a great companion and can be used for herding and ratting. They also make excellent show and obedience dogs. Will do okay in an apartment if it is sufficiently exercised.
