Samoyed Rescue Information: The Samoyed is a gentle, fluffy, deceptively powerful working dog. Samoyeds are mellow, affectionate family pets that are wonderful with children. Sammies are very stubborn and training should be started as early as possible. Samoyeds are indiscriminate barkers and are far too friendly to make good guard dogs. Some Samoyeds can get along with cats, but this breed should not be in a home that has other types of pets. Sammies prefer cooler climates and can live in an apartment if they get enough exercise.
Samoyed Trivia: The Samoyed is named after the Samoyed people of Siberia. Samoyeds have been used as sled dogs. The original breeders of the Samoyed were reindeer-herding Siberian nomads. The Samoyed holds its tail in different positions based on its level of alertness. Samoyed dogs often appear to be smiling and are nicknamed Sammy Smile.
