This breed is a member of the spitz family; the Samoyede tribe of Siberia used them as sled dogs. During storms they borrow into the snow leaving only their nose exposed, they cover this with their tail using it to act as a filter through which they can breathe.
They make excellent family pets, as they get on well with children and are great companions, as they love the human company. They are easy to train and do well at obedience.

Grooming- regular brushing is needed to keep the coat knot free and a little extra care when they shed their coat. Dry shampoo or bath when necessary.
