With six toes on each foot—all of them double- or triple-jointed—and an amazing range of motion, this agile dog breed was used to scale cliffs and rob puffin nests of their eggs. Along with the Norwegian Lundehund’s acrobatic talents, they have a knack for barking and digging, making them a good choice only if you’re prepared to give them lots of supervision and training. They can be very tough to housetrain.
