I was so intrigued by the statue, I bought the book Sea Dog Bamse—World War II Canine Hero available in the Honningsvag museum, which also deserves a visit.

A lovely honor to a dog that deserved it. A nice thing to come across as we were wandering the town of Honningsvag.

This amazing dog was a hero, I highly recommend reading about his deeds, which include immense loyalty and even saving lives. His statue is located in front of the souvenir shop in the port of Honningsvag.
