It’s a good thing this husky breed is so gentle and good-natured because their thick white coats scream, “Cuddle me.” And in fact, your Samoyed will be to the moon with joy if you have tons of affection to give.
Hailing from the wilds of Siberia, the breed’s perpetual smile is actually an evolutionary quirk; the upturned lips prevent the dogs from drooling, which in Siberia would cause dangerous icicles to form around their mouths.
