Finnish reindeer herder
The 3rd lapphund breed ;)
FCI standard #284
Group 5: Spitz and primitive types, Section 3: Nordic watchdogs and Herders, #4: Finland: Lapinporoko´ra (Finnish reindeer herder)
Extras: Has feathers on the thigh, these do not
affect the dogs' movements and should look perfect in 2nd+ dogs. Please note the
individual ball size variations! Look at the bottom for details lol
As you can see, the ears point up when the dog poses. I'm afraid there isn't much I can do about this, unless I remove these ears all together and make new ones, which I'd rather not, since I like the current ones: they move well with the dogs :)
The apparently smooth feathering on the posing dog isn't really there, I guess the pic was just messed up. If you compare with the other two pics of the same dog you can see that it is really fuzzy. This particular doggie as the thin tail and feathering, medium length legs and long snout variation.
Please ignore the body shape on the dogz below as I've changed the breed since then.
A few RL ones:

The breed is known to look a bit different in different areas etc in RL, therefore I have included a few size, extension etc variations.
The finnish reindeer herder is a powerful working dog well known for its abilities. Here are a few showing what they can do!
I removed all possible white leg markings to show the "real base colour" of the legs. All of these variations come with or without the white leg markings shown below ;) If the dogs in the table below have white on their legs, this white is always included with the variations. They still come with or without the head variations unless otherwise mentioned.
If there is a 2nd pic, this is the new eyelid variation. If there is only one pic, this is the only colour the eyelid comes in
