Are you considering adopting a Samoyed mix into your house? If so, you’ve come to the right place because I’ll tell you everything you need to know about the top 10 best Samoyed Mixed breeds in this post.
If you’ve ever seen a white, fluffy cloud with four legs walk past your house, you may be familiar with the Samoyed Dog Breed. These guys easily stand out with their pure white coats curly tails, and famous “Sammy smile.”
Samoyeds love their human owners and will happily spend their days being as close to you as possible. Intelligent with a hint of stubbornness, they love to please their owners and are quite trainable, just be prepared to have some patience!
In recent years, we’ve discovered that by crossing two different purebred parents, a new breed of dog can be created, along with the desirable traits of both breeds. With the Samoyed being such a loving and happy breed, it was a no-brainer to cross them with other well-loved breeds.
With the creation of new “designer” dogs, it can be confusing to decide on which one is the best fit for you and your family. Read on to discover which Samoyed mixes are the most popular!
Top 10 Samoyed Mixes
1. Golden Sammy (Samoyed & Golden Retriever Mix)
As one of the most popular choices for a family dog, Golden Retrievers are sweet, loyal, and affectionate. This has also helped them become one of the more common parent breeds in a new mix so it was natural to mix them with a Samoyed!
The result was a Golden Sammy, an extremely friendly breed with a calm temperament. This mix will usually have the face of a Golden Retriever and the thick, fluffy coat of a Samoyed, which means quite a bit of shedding. Don’t let this deter you though, as a Golden Sammy rarely barks and is excellent with children.
2. Samusky (Samoyed & Siberian Husky)
Though the breed is known for being stubborn, the Siberian Husky remains a popular choice for a family pet. With beautiful coats and quirky personalities, Siberians are another popular choice to mix with.
A Samusky will bring energy and laughter into your home as this mix is a happy, go-lucky type. They love children, other pets, and their families, bringing loyalty from both parent breeds.
A fun fact that not many people are aware of is that Huskies & Samoyeds thrive in the cold weather. It’s quite common to have difficulties getting them to come in from outside!
3. Sammypoo (Samoyed & Poodle)
Hailed as the “hypoallergenic dog”, poodles have steadily grown in popularity. While no pet is hypoallergenic, Poodles do tend to shed less with their short, curly coats. Both intelligent and playful, Poodles are easy to train and enjoy time with their owners.
Sammypoos bring both parents’ intelligence and calm demeanor to their puppies. These guys are incredibly smart and will excel at basic training and more advanced training.
They will need a lot of physical exercise though, as both breeds can be energetic. Provided with a proper outlet for this energy and early training, the Sammypoo can be a wonderful family dog.
4. Pomeranian Samoyed Mix
Pomeranian mixes have risen in popularity as a way to keep larger breed dogs “puppy size” and for the Pomeranian’s affectionate nature. The resulting Samoyed x Pomeranian mix is a small, fluffy cloud with a lighter or darker coat.
These dogs thrive around their humans and wish to be wherever you are. Combining both of their parent’s affectionate personalities, these little guys are both cute and lovable. They’ll also have a longer lifespan, 12-15 years, and can be your companion for a long time.
5. Samoyed German Shepherd Mix
This combination is slowly becoming more popular but can still be quite rare to find. German Shepherds are known for loyalty to their owners, guard dog abilities, and as working dogs.
With a Samoyed’s work ethic and loyalty to their families combined with the German Shepherd, a mix was created that is extremely loyal and highly intelligent. They’ll need early socialization & training along with plenty of exercises.
These crosses often look like smaller versions of a wolf, so be prepared for people to stop and stare at this striking mix.
6. Samoyed Corgi Mix
As the Queen of England’s favorite dog, Corgis have enjoyed a life in the spotlight and their personalities reflect this. Spunky with a bit of attitude, these guys are usually the policemen of the dog park. But, when mixed with a Samoyed, they’ll become more mellow.
Sure, they’ll still be spunky, but the Samoyed’s calm temperament will balance that out for a dog that is both intelligent and confident. A Samoyed Corgi Mix will require lots of exercise and attention, as they like to be the center of attention. They’ll be great with kids and tire them out for a nice nap together, as this mix is quite affectionate as well.
7. Samoyed Australian Shepherd Mix
As one of the top three most intelligent breeds in the world, the Australian Shepherd is not for the faint of heart. These guys are bred to work sunup to sundown and will run circles around you if not properly taken care of.
Luckily, the Samoyed can calm this down a bit and even out the higher energy of an Aussie. Both breeds are working dogs though and combined together, will need a positive outlet for this energy. They’re easy to train and will gladly enjoy doing competitions and dog sports.
The Samoyed Australian Shepherd mix is definitely a more protective breed of their families and homes. Early socialization and training is a must as they can be aggressive to strangers. But don’t let that scare you off, as they only want to protect their loved ones!
8. Chow Chow Samoyed Mix
Both the Samoyed and Chow Chow are Nordic breeds, meaning they were bred to withstand cold temperatures, resulting in a very thick, fluffy coat. Both parent breeds are highly intelligent and when mixed together, they create a new hybrid breed that is easy to train.
Chow Chows are bred for their excellent guard dog abilities and loyalty to their family. While Samoyeds have a more calm temperament, when mixed together with a Chow Chow they can be inherited more guard dog traits, making them a great family pet.
This mixed breed is also wonderful with children and will tolerate them well along with guarding them against strangers. They’ll also be happy to join you on our adventures as they’re a hardy mix and excel in outdoor activities.
9. Samoyed Great Pyrenees Mix
The Great Pyrenees is a very large breed that is bred for their fearless demeanor and outgoing personalities. This fearlessness can come with a bit of stubbornness, so this hybrid may not be for everyone.
When combining these two parent breeds, a Samoyed Great Pyrenees Mix will bring both the affectionate temperament of the Samoyed and the confident personality of the Great Pyrenees. This means that they will need a confident owner who can match their energy levels.
They can make great family dogs as they have a very playful personality and wish to please their owners. They’ll gladly play with your children or enjoy dog parks for other doggie companions to play with.
10. Samoyed Labrador Mix
While not as common, the Samoyed Lab Mix is slowly gaining traction. As one of the most beloved breeds, a Labrador Retriever is a loyal, sweet, and affectionate breed, much like the Samoyed.
Together, these two breeds can create a mix that has the energy of a Lab with the calm temperament of a Samoyed. They are easy to train puppies and enjoy being social with both other pets and family members.
A great personality trait of Labs is their gentle behaviors. Mixed with a Samoyed, you’ll have a great family dog that will be gentle with children and other family pets.
Final thoughts: Which Samoyed Mix is right for you?
Hybrid breeds are gaining traction as popular choices throughout the world. Purebred breeds have genetic health issues due to inbreeding and small lines to breed from.
By crossing two purebred parents, the resulting hybrid breed will have better health and longer lifespans, not to mention that they’re often incredibly cute!
Samoyeds are beloved breeds due to their affectionate and playful personalities along with looking like clouds! By mixing them with other favorite breeds, hybrids can be developed that combine desirable traits. Be sure to do your research into both parent breeds to understand what your puppy could inherit.
Each of these cross breeds has its own pros and cons, but their Samoyed parent will bring a playful, energetic personality that will love to be with your family.
