Is a samoyed a husky?
No, a Samoyed is NOT a husky. They are two distinct breeds, though both originate in Siberia. Samoyeds a very ancient breed, and are white, cream, or biscuit, with dark brown eyes, curly tails, and the distinctive "Samoyed smile". Huskies (UCONN notwithstanding) are usually black and white, grey and white, or other similar colors, and can have eyes of many different colors. They're both GREAT dogs, but they're not the same!

I have no Idea what so ever that is why I am on this site.
Siberian huskies are from Siberia
Both purebred Samoyeds and Huskies have life spans between 12 and 16 years, so a mix of these two breeds would likely have a similar life span.
All kinds of animals can get along together, even those which are natural prey-and-predators, or natural enemies; this can happen particularly where the animals have been toge…ther from an early age. However it must be remembered that these instances, despite all the cute photographs we see, are the exception rather than the rule. Domestic dogs and cats can co-exist happily with other pets and become quite friendly, but the need to hunt and chase, and to practice these skills, is present from the first in all predatory animals and many pet-owners have discovered that it takes only a tiny lapse of canine memory for their dog's best buddy, the family rabbit, to become a sad heap of fur and a regretted memory. So if you keep dogs or cats as well as other animals which might be considered their prey, you'll be well advised to keep them apart. In any case, your pet guinea pig or rabbit or bird or rat, or even kitten, will need to be kept confined for its own safety, and it's best to be sure to do this at all times. If this isn't possible you might need to reconsider the wisdom of taking responsibility for keeping both a predator and its natural prey under the same roof, so to speak. Some people like to try experimenting with introducing such animals to one another in the hope they'll become friends, but unfortunately one could go through quite a lot of guinea pigs before becoming certain it isn't going to work. Bear in mind that no dog-owner with any sense would leave a dog alone even for a moment with a small child, no matter how well-behaved or well-trained the dog is. There are many, many tragic cases showing how dangerous this can be; it's best to keep in mind that dogs are predators and can react in ways which to us seem unpredictable, but which are perfectly normal. For a dog.
No the samoyed is a smell free dog!!
husky. huskies is plural, and husky is right
No they were bred to pull sleds and hunt in the snow. If you want a guard dog get something like a German Shepard or a rottweiler.
It depend on what you are looking for in a dog. Samoyeds are very lovable and social while Collies are very smart and one of the most trainable dogs. Collies are a bit bigger …but both shed a lot.
Samoyeds have thick, double coats of fur, so they are better adapted to living in colder climates. They can adapt to living in warmer climates, but will be happiest in Norther…n areas.
Samoyed's are a domestic breed of Dog and therefore are able to eat any dry or tinned dog food. I suggest Wagg Complete for adult dogs.
Huskies were bred to pull sleighs across the Antarctic full of goods and people. They can run for up to 14 hours a day in sub-zero temperatures. This is an amazing breed with …unbeatable endurance.
I have a 10 yr old samoyed myself, samoyeds just eat normal dog food but if they are adult give them big chunky dog food and then small dog food for little puppies
Depends on what you want. Both breeds are high-energy dogs that tend to do poorly in extremely hot weather, have an independent streak, and will blow coat (shed vast quantitie…s) seasonally. Samoyeds tend to need more frequent brushing because of their longer coat, especially in areas with softer fur such as behind the ears. Both can be territorial or aggressive toward other dogs in some instances, but are generally very friendly toward humans. Neither should be walked off leash, because they have strong instincts that will lead them to run. Samoyeds tend to bark more, but Sibes are more likely to howl and make other sounds. Some Samoyeds have a herding instinct. Research both breeds in depth, try to meet a few of each, and decide which you like better. Talk to responsible breeders and consider getting in contact with a breed-specific rescue.
my sammys a pedigree and shes 12 now :)
