The Lundehund is modified to ascent narrowed cliff paths in Røst where it primitively would have hunted down puffins.

A Short Chronicle On The Norwegian Lundehund 

The stock has a lengthy account. As back as far as 1600s it was employed for hunting down puffins down the Norwegian sea-coast. Its flexibleness and additional toes were idealistic for hunting down the fowl in their untouchable nesting emplacements on drop-offs and in spelunk. Pursuit for the stock slumped once fresh techniques for hunting puffins were contrived and a canine tax was produced. About 1900, they were simply discovered in the sporadic small town of Mostad (wrote Måstad in Norwegian), Lofoten. The stock was almost non-extant about Second World War once canine distemper hit Værøy and the bordering islands. In 1963, the population was additional annihilated by distemper once more. This time, simply six canines endured (1 on Værøy and 5 in southerly Norway Hamar (these five comprised from the same female parent), producing a population choke-point. Attributable to deliberate engendering with exacting rules of thumb, there are at present a calculated 1,500–2,000 canines on the globe, with about 1,100 of the population in Norway and ~350 in the U.S.A.
