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!

Samoyeds are a breed of dog that is used as more of a family pet these days. They are both good with people and other animals too, which makes them good pets. The …breed used to be used for herding reindeer and also keeping their owners warm in colder climates with their thick coat.
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.
There's no such thing as a Samoyed Husky. They're two distinct breeds. Samoyeds have brown eyes--blue eyes are a disqualification in the AKC standard.
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.
Purebred Samoyeds can have health problems such as Samoyed Hereditary Glomerulopathy (a renal disease), hip displaysia, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetes. Purebred Huskies ca…n have eye defects (juvenile cataracts, corneal dystrophy, progressive retinal atrophy), and dogs used for sled races are more prone to develop health problems such as gastric disease or bronchitis. There is a very low occurrence of hip dysplaysia in this breed. A mix between these two breeds could have any combination of these health problems.
There is no such thing as a samoyed husky, there are huskys and there are samoyeds.
No, it is it's own special breed. It's smaller than the husky, and certainly...doesn't look like one. It is however a spitz type of dog and therefore does share charcteristics… and looks (curly tail etc). These are the closest to a wolf and include Samoyeds Huskies Chows Malamutes Akitas Elkhounds Keeshond Shiba Inu etc.
They are all dogs!
my sammys a pedigree and shes 12 now :)
Yes, this combination is certainly possible. Bear in mind that pedigree's are much more valuable than crossbreds.
Samois was created in 1978.
Samois ended in 1983.
