The Samoyed is a sociable, peaceful and gentle dog. These powder puffs hail from Siberia, and were bred for hard work in cold environments. Commonly known as the "Sammy," these friendly pups love everyone and are great for families and children. They are easy going, don't mind living in apartments (as long as there is air conditioning!) and are guaranteed to make friends with anyone they meet.
The Samoyed is known for its friendly, affectionate personality. Its happy expression is sometimes referred to as the "Sammy smile."
The Samoyed is one of several ancient dog breeds. It originated in Asia and was bred by the Samoyede people of Siberia to pull sleds, hunt, and herd reindeer. The Samoyede are believed to have treated their dogs like members of the family, instilling trust and loyalty in the breed.
