Samoyed Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

Originally bred to hunt, haul sledges, and herd reindeer, the Samoyed dog breed proved a valuable companion for northwestern Siberia’s Samoyede people. Among the breed’s duties: pack hiking, tracking, and warming their owners by sleeping on top of them at night. A working breed, the Samoyed can be strong-willed at times, but above all they remain friendly, gentle, and devoted family dogs. DogDelite recommends this dog bed to give a good night’s sleep to your medium-sized Samoyed. You should also pick up this dog de-shedder for your high shedding pup! See all Samoyed characteristics below!

Scottish Terrier Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

An independent and stubborn character, the Scottish Terrier dog breed is also quite sensitive to praise and blame. Independent, intelligent, and hilarious in his dignified seriousness, he’s a true terrier, which makes him an excellent watchdog. Thanks to those incredibly short legs, he’s not going to train for a marathon with you — heck, he won’t even go jogging with you — but he is a perfect walking companion, especially if you appreciate his vocal approach to bicycles and squirrels. Despite his size, he doesn’t yap: he has a powerful bark that can scare the wits out of the unsuspecting burglar or delivery person. He totally rocks at agility and earthdog trials (those vermin have got to go). You’ll enjoy a rodent-free yard with him around, but watch out for the holes he’s dug. See below for complete list of Scottish Terrier characteristics!

Shih Tzu Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

The name “Shih Tzu” means little lion, but there’s nothing fierce about this dog breed. This pooch is a lover, not a hunter. Bred solely to be companions, Shih Tzus are affectionate, happy, outgoing house dogs who love nothing more than to follow their people from room to room. Since ancient times, they’ve made themselves comfortable on the laps of people from all walks of life, even emperors! In recent years, however, pet parents have started taking Shih Tzus off their laps and into dog sports, training them for obedience, rally, and agility competitions. They make great family pets who get along with other animals and even children, so long as kids know how to gently handle and play with a small pup. If you’re looking for a small best buddy who who can adapt to apartment living, join you on the couch for cuddles, and shower you with unconditional love, this may be the dog for you.

Silky Terrier Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

The Silky Terrier dog breed exemplifies the expression “small dog, big personality.” Weighing just eight to 10 pounds when full grown, he’s tough and confident, perhaps because of his heritage as a hunter of small prey. Beneath the feistiness, however, is a loving companion dog who loves to stick close to his person. See below for complete list of Silky Terrier characteristics!
