Taito is a big cuddly bear of a Lapphund with excellent conformation and a temperament that is truly outstanding. He is gentle, wonderful with children and other animals and he never goes looking for trouble - even with other males. He happily makes friends with anyone who is willing. He even cohabits with another male Lapphund, chickens and a house rabbit, as you can see from the photos above.
He has a cheeky sense of humour and loves to have his chest and ears scratched. His hobbies are chasing non-house rabbits and lazing around.
I'm so very proud of this wonderful boy and I'm delighted that I have a beautiful litter of puppies sired by him. You can find links to see them as individuals on their litter page.

Critique of Taito from Finnish breed specialist Tuula Savolainen in 2010:
"... 3 years old male of excellent type with excellent head and expression, good size of the ears. Good neck and topline, well developed body, good angulations, well carried tail. Very good coat quality. Moves well with reach and drive. Good temperament."
