An ancient Siberian sledge dog bred to herd and guard reindeer,, the Samoyed is characterized by his hefty, weather-resistant coat and signature smiling black lips. This working breed thrives on having a job to do. A perfect companion for families with children, he is kind, gentle and devoted. The highly intelligent, active Samoyed needs daily exercise and will retain his puppy-like playfulness throughout his lifetime.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
Did you know?
A team of Samoyeds accompanied Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen on his quest to discover the South Pole in 1911. The Samoyed’s gene pool contains no wolf or fox blood, distinguishing this dog as a primitive breed.
