Siberian Samoyed Breed Profile


The Siberian Samoyed is a mix between the Siberian Husky and Samoyed dog breeds. The two breeds combined make for a beautiful designer dog breed that shares the characteristics of both lively and family-oriented canines. When comparing it to other mixes, the ultra-popular Pomsky comes to mind as a close comparison.

The Siberian Husky is a high energy, pack-oriented sled dog who loves to run with the family pack. Huskies are well known for needing lots of attention but are very trainable and intelligent overall.

The Samoyed is also known as the “Smiling Sammy,” because of their ability to turn their lips upwards and give the appearance of a grin. These vocal and loving dogs are one of the most ancient dog breeds in the world and are the most closely related to the primitive dog, as there are no wolf or fox genes present in their DNA. The Samoyed is not a low-shedding breed, but is well known for not having a strong dog odor.

Overall, the Siberian Samoyed should make a great family pet.
