Kersins Spurðann CGC
Spurðann is a sweet little guy a afraid of nothing. When we first introduced him to the other dogs, he growled at them, he was already trying to establishing dominance! He is very energetic and loves to play all the time. He gets along good with the other dogs, but Snotra and Nella are his favorite, where ever they are, Spurðann sure is to be there too. He is such a character full of fun and personality. He is very typical for the breed, can jump and climb just about anything he always sits on the highest point to look out, if it is in the house or outside. He is very alert and high energy for play, walks, run or work, but calm when in the house resting. He always has a happy smile. We sure love this little guy very much.

He is a great daddy, he was very good with the puppies, when we had them here, and he loves his little Nella and plays with her all the time.
He is just the sweetest little guy.
He is happy, smart, funny and such a good boy, no matter if he is out playing in
the heat of a summer day or out in the snow on the coldest winter day. Snow is his favorite playground.
Spurðann is very much like his father Kátur, when inside he will sit on the windowsill and keep a watch what is going on with the world outside.
