History

The Norrbottenspets (North Bothnian Country Spitz) probablemente se origina a partir del pequeño Laika tipo spitz que se conocía por vivir con los cazadores en el área del Cabo Norte, already in prehistoric times. Pequeños spitz cazadores han sobrevivido por miles de años a través de la selección natural – la sobrevivencia del más apto. En las muy duras y difíciles áreas de la parte norte de la Península Escandinava, hunting for food and skins was a necessity in order to survive. Precious skins like saber, piel de marta y armiño eran la única moneda válida por siglos. When fur prices fell drastically after WWII, así también lo hizo el interés por el Norrbottenspets.

The breed disappeared and there were no records for many years, hence the Kennel Club of Sweden (SKK) declared it extinct. Pero solo una década mas tarde llegaron noticias de que especímenes de tipo verdadero habían sido encontrados viviendo como mascotas y perros de vigilancia en pequeños hogares de tierra adentro del Norte de Botnia. Due to the very dedicated work of a few men, this ancient hunting spitz was saved.
In 1967 the Norrbottenspets was introduced to the Registries and a new standard was drawn up.
