What is a Nordic Dog? A Nordic dog is a dog that has its roots in the North in places such as Northern Alaska, Siberia, Russia, and in Northern Europe such as Norway. This type is synonymous with sled dogs, or dogs that are bred to pull and handle the cold weather. Some Nordic dogs are Alaskan Malamute, Eskimo Dog, Greenland Dog(Gronland Hund), Hauling Laika such as the North Easterley Hauling Laika, Siberian Laika, Samoyed, Siberian Husky, Keeshound, Lappland, Lapphund, Buhund, Lundehund, Spitz, Ainu, Iceland Dog, and many more.

These dogs are also very similar to wolves in alot of aspects, and vice-versa.
