A photo of a dog described as an Iceland Dog, printed in W.E. Mason's Dogs of all Nations in 1915.
The Icelandic sheepdog often has two dewclaws on each hind leg.
Family-friendly dogs are breeds that interact well with children. These dogs remain good-natured even when subjected to a child's poking and grabbing.
Higher-requirement dogs tend to need more frequent play time in larger areas, while minimal-need dogs can be left alone more often.
Heavy-shedding dogs sometimes include thick and heavy double-coated breeds. Dogs that are adapted for a cold climate are often heavy shedders.
