i've been really wanting a samoyed for a while but i'm not too sure about getting it because 1) it doesn't get cold where i live (no snow or anything) and 2) i live in a reasonably big house but i don't have a backyard so i keep my actual dog in the house all the time! (constantly taking him for walks, of course, 3 times a day) as i said, i really wanna get it but i'm afraid i won't be able to give him/her the living conditions they should get. do you think it's a bad idea?

Samoyeds are dogs that adapt very well. Ellie stays in the house because we don’t have a fenced in back yard and it’s pretty small as well. She does very well in the house. When I’m sleepy and want to watch tv she calms down and will take a nap with me and if I want to go outside and play she will be ready to run. They just go so well with so many people and so many different lifestyles that it’s easy to keep them happy. But of course that requires more hard work. Taking them to parks and running and walking as much as possible. But it’s great you have another dog, that will help a lot when they get bored. And as for temperature I know a few people with Samoyeds in places like Florida that are always hot. You just need to brush them out as much as possible and keep them cool with a fan or have a doggie pool. And it helps that the dog will be inside too if it’s hot outside. Honestly I think it will be ok but I would ask a few more people and learn some more about Samoyeds before making the decision. I hope I helped. (:

How much does Ellie bark?

If you aren’t paying attention to her… not at all. If she wants something from you she usually does her “pretty bark” which is like a small howl (not very loud). Of course if she’s hyper or playing it’s a lot and very loud, sometimes it’s hard to get her to shut up but if you’re patient and calm her down she will do her pretty bark. (:

Hey, i just recently got a samoyed, and i was just wondering if it was normal that she bites everything

Absolutely. Ellie ate everything. She even chewed off the bottom corner of the cabinet in the kitchen. The best thing to do is always have toys and bones to chew on and make sure they know what the difference is between toys and other stuff like your shoes. Reward for good behavior and if it gets too bad you can spray stuff on what they bite the most with vinegar or something your dog doesn’t like the taste of. - what worked best for Ellie was I hid treats inside her toys so it kept her busy and it made her always focus on her toys cause she later realized She wasn’t going to find any treats in my shoes. But they do grow out of it!!! Really hope I helped (:

Sorry if you get asked this a lot but how old are you? You look so young (and pretty!) in your pics. I'm 20 and hoping to move out soon and get my own fur baby, I'm beyond excited (: Ellie is beautiful btw!!

I’m 19 (: I’ll be 20 in December!! And thanks lol if you do move out try to look through your local humane society’s before deciding on any kind of dog. Cause sometimes the best kinds of dogs hide there (: But if you choose to get a certain breed then goodluck!! And if you get a samoyed you can ask me absolutely anything, I’m always here to help anybody with Sammy questions(: I’m so excited for you :D lol
