Finnish Lapphund Puppies History:
Finnish Lapphunds originated as reindeer herders for the Sami people, which were indigenous people in Nordic countries such as Russia, Sweden, Finland, and Norway. People in Sweden and Norway were the first to consider setting standards for dogs of Lapland, which was done before the second World War. After the war, these dogs were in danger of extinction because of distemper outbreak. Standards for the Swedish Lapphund were adopted by the Federation Cynologique Internationale in 1944, and afterwards, the standards for the Finnish Lapphund were set.
Brown Finnish Lapphund Puppies:
It was in 1945 that the Finnish Kennel Club set the standards for this breed, which they named as the Lappish Herder (also called Kukonharjunlainen). Theories state that these dogs resulted from crossing Karelian Bear Dogs with reindeer dogs. During the 1950s, the first breed standard for Lapponian Herders was created by the Finnish Kennel Association. The 1960s brought about the unification of different Finnish kennel associations, and during 1966, dog breeds underwent reassessment. Thus, the breeds were formally defined, with the Lapponian Herder standards set again in 1966, and the Finnish Lapphund was then given definition in 1967.
