    To restore its population, Émile de La Besge had six dogs brought to him from England (probably English Foxhound). But, then tried to roll back his influence by strict inbreeding. Thus the two males were born, Talbot and Rochester, and the two females, Tartane and Turbulente. Talbot and Turbulent They had a daughter, Dashing, who became famous for her particularly fine nose and speed. Mated with Traveller, an English male bred by him Conde Le Couteulx and gave birth to puppies of exceptional quality. It is assumed that Poitevin of today are all descendants of Fringante and Traveller. But, a certain earl Henri de La Porte stated that his uncles Auguste and Paul had already begun to fix the race in 1835, and that in the beginning there were quite a few others, namely, the male Ténor and the female Ravissante.

    The Poitevin hound was not accepted as a purebred dog for a long time. In the famous French hunting manualParforce, published in 1890 by the count Le Couteulx de Canteleu, they only mentioned “bastards of Haut-Poitou“, although the ability of dogs to hunt wolves was certainly appreciated. Besides the royal white dogs and the English Foxhound, it is said that the disappeared Larryes and Céris contributed to the creation of the breed. It was a Scent hound medium size white and orange. It is said that he resembled greyhounds and was a very good hare hunter.. Perhaps it is from him that the special elegance of the Poitevin hound.

    Samoyedo

    The Samoyed, Although it may seem a teddy, It is a true athlete who needs exercise daily.

    Content

    History

    Where does he come from Samoyed originally?

    The Samoyed is the archetype of a dog from the far north. It belongs to the archetypes of the dog in general. The Samoyed it is one of the oldest dog breeds. Type dogs Samoyed have accompanied the peoples of Siberia for thousands of years. The Samoyeds (or nenets) are various indigenous peoples who have lived for thousands of years throughout Siberia to the Arctic Ocean. Most live as nomads and follow herds of wild or semi-wild reindeer.. Their dogs have different tasks. They pull the sleds with the household goods or with the hunters for the hunt. They pull the boats over the snow into open water. They help with the reindeer herds. They guard and protect people as if they were herds.

    They defied death even when facing the polar bear, the world's largest land predator. The Samoyeds provide an excellent navigation system that makes its way through icy deserts even in fog or snow storms, avoiding cracks and ice holes. They often sleep in the tents of the Samoyedos. They keep each other warm. So it is not surprising that the peoples Samoyeds have an extremely intimate relationship with their dogs, and not only because their existence in the far north depends on these dogs.

    The Countess Aga von Hagen reports in his book on dog breeds from 1933 that the “Samoyed Spitz” was treated as a sacred dog in his homeland and that no family Samoyed voluntarily separated from his dogs. On the other hand, the Countess explains that the Samoyed Spitz, through this close connection, show a “highly developed mental characteristics despite their ferocity”. Was not up 2017 that a report by Russian archaeologists was published, that they had found remains of 9000 ten years old dogs in Siberia. In the permafrost these were so well preserved that they could be closely examined and classified as sled dogs..

    Only in 1889 English Ernest Kilburn-Scott managed to import the first Samoyeds from Siberia. So these dogs entered modern pedigree dog breeding.. Immediately one turned to their outer appearances. White color rose as a feature of a Samoyed basically arbitrarily to standard. At that moment, like today, se and take Samoyed original in many colors, only rarely in pure white. To impose the pure white color, inbreeding was carried out according to this dubious criterion and thus much of the real character and extreme robustness of the Samoyed. It also, the breeding base was already very small anyway, because the Siberian peoples were reluctant to give up their dogs for breeding in England.

    Finally, in the decade of 1950 they also crossed the original line, these being very different in character and, if you look closely, also in appearance. Although the Samoyed current European breeding has lost much of the original character of the true Siberian dog, still an original breed. The most exciting thing about him is that he shows at the same time a close connection with humans. Not without reason, the Samoyed is one of the founders of other breeds of dogs such as the Eurasian. The first standard for Samoyed it was created in 1909, in 1913 was recognized in England. The FCI, Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognized her in 1959.

    Physical characteristics

    Males tend to have more size females usually weigh between 20 and 32,5 kg, while females usually weigh between 17 and 25 kg.

    The eyes of the Samoyed they are usually black or brown, and slanting. The nose or truffle must be well developed and preferably black. At some times of the year it can clear up giving rise to the commonly called “nose in winter”. Some other factors such as age or climate can clarify it, but it is important to always keep the edges of black. Otherwise it would mean a mandatory veterinary visit.

    The ears they should be thick and completely covered with hair, form triangular, and upright. In most cases they are white, but occasionally they can be Brown clear (known as color “cookie”).

    The tail of the Samoyed it is one of the most distinctive features of this breed. As the Mally, the tail hanging hook-shaped on his back; However, and unlike the Malamute, the tail of Samoyed touches back and leans over, slightly, on one side and must not be a very closed hook or in the form of “flag”.

    in cold climates, some Samoyed sleep with their tails over their noses to provide additional protection. Most of the Samoyed, They allow the tail to fall when they are relaxed, but they back to its original position when they are alert.

    The Samoyed, they have a dense double coat of hair. The top layer has a dense, straight and thick hair, It seems the white but it has some dyes of silver. This top layer keeps the Undercoat relatively clean and free of debris. The bottom layer is a soft, dense and short hair that keeps the dog warm.

    The bottom layer is changed from one to two times a year, process known as shedding of hair. This in no way means that they move hair only on these occasions, year-round fine hair it is moved and replaced, which –usually- sticking it on your clothes or simply air fleet.

    The Samoyed standard can have a mix of color White and biscuit, Although dogs completely white or completely color cookie are not rare. Males are generally longer than females fur.

    The Samoyed, they are good at grooming themselves, not too many baths still needed. Dirt usually falls easily from the outer layers of hair, making the dog show clean.

    The hair of the puppies is more porous, so it is easier to you manche with the grass and mud if they are long time outdoors. The aspect of brushing is more difficult, that by their thick fur in some areas like the back of the ears tend to tangle is if not brushes weekly.

    The Samoyed will require that, cut the hair that grows between their feet bearing, but with this exception the rest can stay that way, course.

    Except for reasons medical or hair is extremely entangled, it is not recommended that the Samoyed be shaved, since their hair acts as an insulator from both cold and moderate heat, in addition to protecting fair skin from Samoyed before burns by the rays of the sun.

    An important characteristic of this breed is that they almost do not have the characteristic dog smell., making them good dogs live indoors. The lack of dander, as well, makes them hypoallergenic.

    The thick layer of hair can make you feel uncomfortable in the summer in locations where the climate is warm, where they prefer indoors because the air is colder. Their hair also acts as a natural repellent against lice and ticks..

    When moving the hair, most of the outer layer falls off and is replaced, the old man can fall into large bundles, leaving hollow spaces in extreme cases. You can brush the hair, with a metal comb, with which we can speed up the process of moving and help the Samoyed to regain your appearance more quickly. Brushing frequently help him is not enrede.

    Give a bath to Samoyed it's a long process, because the hair is almost “waterproof”, so it will take time for it to be fully wet and then fully wet. The hair Samoyed must be dried with cold forced air (using a hair dryer), as water can be trapped in the thick undercoat making it difficult for it to evaporate.

    It is important that you rinse well, as leftover shampoo or soap can lead to a fungal infection, difficult to remove without having to shave the affected area. To keep the hair from Samoyed Radiant, brushing and a healthy diet may not be disparaged.

    How big is a “Samoyed”?

    The samoyed have a height at the withers of about 57 centimeters in males and 53 centimeters in females. Weight is not prescribed by the standard, but it is usually between 18 and 30 kg.

    How long can one live? “Samoyed”?

    One Samoyed healthy can reach the 12 years and more, and this with a good physical condition.

    Character and skills

    The provision of play of the Samoyed makes it a dog not recommended as a guardian; a Samoyed aggressive is very rare. But, with their tendency to bark they can be diligent watchdogs, barking when something or someone approaches their territory.

    The Samoyed, they are one Excelent company, especially for small children or even other dogs, remaining also playful until advanced age. The Samoyed, as well, they are known to be somewhat fools sometimes and difficult to train due to lack of diligence and not due to lack of intelligence, so it must be persuaded obey orders which are given.

    His inheritance by pulling sleds, the Samoyed, has no problems to pull objects, and Samoyed who has not been trained has no problem with dragging his owner on the leash when they take him out for a walk instead of walking beside him.
