The word Samoyed (Samoyede) was the name of the nomadic tribe inhabiting the vast tundra areas from the eastern shores of the White Sea in Russia to the river stretches of the Ob and Yenisei in Siberia. It was also the name given by the tribe to their land and to the dogs which shared their lives, their work and their homes. To them the Samoyed dog was the shepherd of the reindeer herds, the defender and guard of the household, the occasional sledge dog but, above all, the intimate domestic pet.
