Samoyeds are a breed of large herding dogs with thick white fur coats. They were bred by the Samoyedic peoples of Siberia to herd reindeer, and generally have a friendly disposition. They are a basal breed whose fur can be used for knitting, and they are prone to howling together when in groups. - Robin Haigh
