Samoyed dogs are tough, strong and competitive, thanks to their origins as reindeer herders. They have an adorably alert expression and a friendly predisposition that makes them good family dogs.
Just be careful: Samoyeds are known for digging, so make sure you keep them busy — or else you might fall into a hole in your yard! Samoyeds are hard to breed so they’re not very common, and you can expect to pay a little (or a lot) more for one. If you are concerned about all that hair, don’t be — Samoyeds are hypoallergenic, making them great for allergy sufferers.
