Adopting A Samoyed: 17 Reasons To Never, Ever Do That


Samoyeds: pretty, playful and oh-so-fluffy. Who wouldn't want one of these majestic dogs in their life? Originally bred to hunt, haul sledges, and herd reindeer, the Samoyed dog breed can be strong-willed at times, but above all they remain friendly, gentle, and devoted family dogs.  They also have a jolly "sense of humor" and often exhibit it when disobeying.


If that's not enough to convince you to adopt one of these fluffy monsters, then here's a list of reasons to help you make up your mind.


1. They DEMAND attention at all times!



2. And should absolutely not be trusted around children!



3. Be warned: They may come across as romantic…

7. They have also been known to attack you upon entering your own home so be on guard!

8. You must never forget their birthday! They expect to be treated like absolute royalty…



9. They have been known to steal your bed, so be prepared to sleep on the sofa!


Update 😍❀️ little miss Aurora has started eating like her normal self again, she’s getting her happy personality back & she’s even enjoying some very light playtime out the back with her fluffy siblings ❀️ she’s back to the vet in 5 days to hopefully have her stitches removed & she will have a full checkup then! We were able to pay off our vet bill on the Thursday! We are still so in awe of everyone’s generosity, we couldn’t have done it without you. Aurora definitely couldn’t have done it without all the prayers & love we know she was getting. πŸ₯€ there was a little bit extra that a few people donated asking us to buy the kids a few toys & treats! We will be off to do that tomorrow!🐾✨ She even jumped onto the bed all by herself this afternoon (but she did need some help getting back down ❀️❀️) #Samoyedsofaustralia #samoyed #sammylovers #samoyedsofinstagram #samoyedo #samoyedsofperth #samoyedsmile #samoyeds #dogsofinstagram #petsofinstagram #samoyed #ilovemydog #puppylove #petoftheday #instapuppy #fluffydogs #dogstagram

If you do decide that you want a samoyed, see if you can find one in a shelter before deciding to buy. You can find purebred dogs in shelters just like any other!


If you want to get a samoyed puppy, make sure that you don’t support the abusive puppy mill and backyard breeder industry by getting your new family member through a trusted breeder. Ethical breeders will want to meet you several times before they sell you a puppy, will let you see the puppy with their mom, brothers and sisters and will raise their dogs in a home environment.
