About Moose Dog Farm
Paul and Allison Ward moved to Bend, Oregon, in spring 2014 with a dream to start a small farm and to start living a more rural lifestyle. They found a piece of property just north of Bend (close to the great little town of Tumalo) and worked for about a year to get it ready for our animals. They now have a small herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats, a flock of chickens of various breeds, a beehive, and one small bunny. The origin of their farm name pays homage to the owners' love of Norwegian Elkhounds. Elkhound is actually a mistranslation from the Norwegian name for the breed, elghund -- the literal translation is actually moose dog, as Elkhounds are traditionally moose and bear hunters.
