Ancient Old World Family Dogs

One of the oldest family oriented dog breeds is the Swedish Elkhound.

History dates back thousands of years on the Swedish Elkhound, known now formally as the Jämthund.

Aina comes from the very best of the old lineages in the old country, she was born in the Karelian district of Northern Finland. My brother Dale and I traveled over to get her and she is here now in Canada to establish a full breeding and preservation lineage of Swedish Elkhounds in North America. We are very excited to be able to share this great breed with our contacts here in North America .

Aina - Swedish Elkhound.

Aina is a stunning young Jämthund female.

Aina and MervAina is one of my very best companions. She is an amazing young female and we are so very proud of her. She is all we could ever have wished for.

I had spent years planning to expand our program to include the full Jämthund lineages and waited for all the timing to be right and most importantly for the breeders in Finland who were dedicated to the breed and preservation to have one for me.

We have been very fortunate to have such outstanding breeders in the old country assist us in getting the perfect mating pair of Jämthunds to provide our breeding stock.

Aina's mother Oskulan Lisa is a Finnish Bear Champion, her dad, Finnish Moose Champion, all ancestors dating back to the start of the association all Champions hunting dogs. We could not have been more blessed.

We have a very exciting future for the Jämthunds in Canada. She is going to be cycling soon, we expect in the next short while and we have a tremendous male for her, Rico, who is waiting impatiently to begin the next line of North American born Jämthunds. Pretty Cool times indeed!


Rico - Swedish Elkhound.

Rico is a magnificent big male Jämthund.

Rico and MervRico is a stunning big dark male Jämthund from the same region in Finland. He is a year older than Aina and is an just this magnificent big fella. Russ and Beth have done such an amazing job growing this big rascal out to his full potential and keeping him in the very best shape through a rigourous conditioning program.

They are as excited as Rico is, he has been waiting for Aina now since she was just this little rascal biting his leg and having some fun playing with him.

Rico is from one of the most impressive lineages of Jämthunds in the world. Equal in all regards to Aina's impeccable lineage. I had the extreme pleasure to have the breeders, Satu and Jani host us when we came to Finland and took us all around to the great dogs, the dog show and of course, Satu was so gracious to work with Ossi and I the breeder of Aina as a translator through the whole process of planning the litter and pup, from Ossi. Without Satu the work with Ossi and I would have been fun, he doesn't speak English, and I don't speak Finnish, but no doubt we got along just fine as we both speak Elkhound!

These my friends, these are true ancient Viking Elkhounds!
