Bergen the Norwegian Elkhound

Puppy Breed: Norwegian Elkhound

Bergen is almost three months old. Elkhounds were originally bred to hunt moose (elk) in Norway. They would find the moose and keep them stationary by barking at them until the hunter came. Bergen still has her hunting genes, as you can see from her deer antlers that she found and carries with her often. She is very curious and is growing bigger every day. She loves to do things to make us happy, but she definitely has a mind of her own, especially when she sees a deer to chase. She is very helpful with the dishes -- but she only likes the dirty ones!
