Facts about Fenrir

  • Breed: Norwegian Buhund
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10957875
This is a courtesy post. He is a 7 year old
Norwegian Buhund in good health. He is currently up to date on his
shots (due for two boosters in January which we will be taking care
of) and is not currently on any medications. He is neutered.

We are sad to be giving up Fenrir, but
we have come to realize that we are not the best owners for him. He
requires a bit more care and attention than we are currently able to
give. Due to this, it is with a heavy heart we have decided to find
a better home for him.

He is very well potty trained and has
gone through multiple training courses, including a recent basic
training class taught by Heather Moore. He responds well to training
when on leash in a distraction free environment, but when off leash,
or outdoors he gets distracted and loses interest. He will
occasionally react poorly to certain stimulus, such as motorcycles
and large trucks when they pass near him. When not properly
distracted he will bark and lunge at these. He is also aggressive
towards squirrels and other small animals, he will try to chase them
if he sees them.

Fenrir has spent very little time with
other dogs, so has very little experience socializing with them. We
have put him in various situations with other dogs and have seen him
be fine, and on other occasions he is constantly trying to mount
other dogs. I believe with proper socialization and time he would be
great with other dogs. As for cats, we do not know how he is as we,
nor his previous owners, owned cats. He has spent very little time
around children and what time he has has been to mixed results. When
the children are calm he is just fine and has no issues with them.
When he sees children running around outside he will bark at them. I
think that seeing energetic children causes his herding instincts to
kick in, but we have never let him out in that situation.

When inside, Fenrir will usually keep
to himself and is very calm and quiet. While he does not usually
seek them out, he loves to be petted and enjoys playing with the
right toys. His current favorite is a cat toy that is a mouse on the
end of a string. He will chase is until he is so tired he just has
to stop. He can be picky with toys, but find the right ones and he
loves them. Fenrir is also very good about letting you know when he
needs something and can be very sweet and cute once he bonds to you.
It takes some time, but he will bond given time and love. If interested in Fenrir please contact
