The Elkhound is a hardy grey hunting dog. In appearance, a typical northern dog of medium size and substance, square in profile, close coupled and balanced in proportions. The head is broad with prick ears, and the tail is tightly curled and carried over the back. The distinctive gray coat is dense and smooth lying.

The Elkhound is a hunting dog that originated in Norway as early as 5000 B.C. It is used to hunt elk, bear, and other wild animals. As a hunter, the Elkhound has the courage, agility and stamina to hold moose and other big game at bay by barking and dodging attack, and the endurance to track for long hours in all weather over rough and varied terrain. The Elkhound is bold and energetic.

The coat needs a good brushing once a week and a periodic bath. The Elkhound thrives on companionship and will prove to be a lifelong loyal friend.
