Originally bred for hunting, sled pulling and reindeer herding, the Samoyed dog proved to be a valuable companion for the Samoyed people of northwestern Siberia. As a working breed, Samoyeds can sometimes have a strong character, but above all they are gentle and devoted family dogs. They are affectionate with almost everyone, as long as new people don’t mind some shedding and loose hairs on their clothes.AniMall24 recommends a dog bed to give your medium sized Samoyed a good night’s sleep.You should also pick up a dog de-shedder for your high shedding puppy!
