The History

The Samoyed is considered the most beautiful of the Nordic dogs, 
its history is fascinating like the one of the people where the name comes from: the Samoyeds.


This nomadic people,
located in North Russia,
on the East side of the Mounts Urali
and on the West side of the Yenisei river,
continuously searching for food
and pastures during their moving,
were always with a very capable,
intelligent and resistant dog,
who was naturally very loyal.

The race was kept in great consideration
from the Samoyed people, 
as primitive selection criteria, 
avoided that the females coupled with wolves
or other types of dogs,
as instead happened for other dogs.

The character of the Samoyed is very special.
They are dogs of great intelligence and personality, with particular sensitiveness, which the owner must never forget.
Thanks to its great sensitiveness, the Samoyed learns what it is asked it easily and is a very pleasant mate inside a family,
very affectionate and suitable for kids
