Samoyed

About

Some studies say these playful and alert dogs are among the fourteen most ancient breeds in existence.
They were first developed by the nomadic Samoyedic people of Siberia, who bred them to pull sleds and herd reindeer. Centuries on, they were introduced to England by Robert Scott in 1889 –and it was in England that their more modern traits were developed.
They were finally introduced to the United States in 1906 when Russia’s Grand Duke Nicholas presented one of the dogs as a gift to the country.
Samoyeds are sometimes called ‘The Smiley Dog’, because they seem to have a permanent smile on their face. That seems fitting as they just so happen to put a smile on ours too.
