Many of these beautiful dogs were sacrificed in the "turn of the century" polar expeditions. Those that survived the expeditions became the foundation for the breed outside of Siberia. In 1893, Nansen sought the North Pole and used Samoyed Dogs to pull his sledges and for food. In 1911, it was Amundsen's Samoyed lead dog that was the first non-native creature at the South Pole. Now, on our own "expeditions" today, we can enjoy them for all the reasons that endeared them with the early polar explorers. See why they aren't just another pretty face in the show ring. The Samoyed Dog's strength, beauty and strong desire for human interaction make it "man's best friend". For more information about the
