Puffy, fluffy, snow-white cloud-dogs, Samoyeds are a great breed for a family dog! With an alert, playful temperament, they rarely become aggressive and are so friendly that they have earned the nickname of 'smiley dog.'

Their dense, double layered coat takes frequent grooming and is there to protect the Samoyed from the bitter cold of Siberia, where they originated from. They were first used as reindeer herders for the nomadic Samoyedic peoples, as well as working as sled dogs when on the move. You can still see this instinct in the pups today, they have evolved alongside humans and they love to pull their masters along for a walk!

These active, intelligent dogs are a joy to be around, but they need a responsible and dedicated owner. They require plenty of exercise, especially in their natural environment of cold, harsh winter, and may become destructive if you don't fancy heading out into the snow with them. But their fun-loving, good-natured companionship is well worth the extra effort, and they will keep your family fit and active too.

We here at Bored Panda have put together a list of Samoyeds doing what they do best, being bright, energetic and goofy. Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments. Do you have a Samoyed? Would you consider getting one? Join the discussion!

I found a samoyed when I was out walking my dog one day. It took me forever to find his tag in the fluff, then try to see to dial the number on it, while holding on to my dog too. In the end it was a waste of time as they'd changed their number.
