I know I said I wasn’t going to do any more animals for a while, but just recently, three brand new dog breeds have been added to the AKC or American Kennel Club. I will begin by showing you "how to draw an Icelandic Sheepdog", step by step. The Icelandic sheepdog was brought to Iceland from 874 to 930 AD by the Vikings. They were mainly used as work dogs for herding sheep, cattle, and even horses. Now because this breed took to herding in Iceland’s harsh climates so well, that the sheepdog became a required breed for farmers and Icelandic folk. What is cool about the Icelandic Sheepdog is they are both a herding dog as well as a good pet to have. They have super temperaments, love to play and are very friendly and smart. They look like a cross between a chow and husky, but they are definitely beautiful. Their coats come in a variety of colors like red, tan, gold, and black. When I said that they are a new breed, what I meant to say is that they are a new breed that is recognized by the AKC. They have been around for a while, but they have not been part of AKC. Anyways, you should enjoy this lesson because it’s on a great breed of dog. I will get busy with uploading more lessons as you can get busy trying out this tutorial. Have fun with drawing an Icelandic sheepdog, and be sure to rate, or comment.
