Summary
With six toes on each foot–all of them double- or triple-jointed–and an amazing range of motion, this agile dog was used to scale cliffs and rob puffin nests of their eggs.

Along with his acrobatic talents, he has a knack for barking and digging, making him a good choice only if you’re prepared to give him lots of supervision and training. He’s very tough to housetrain. Full Norwegian Lundehund profile on DogTime.com
