Look­ing more like baby po­lar bears than dogs, th­ese rare Samoyed pup­pies are in their el­e­ment with win­ter ap­proach­ing.

The pup­pies were born near Yeovil in Som­er­set but are more at home in Siberia.

The Samoyed is a breed of large herd­ing dog, from the spitz group, with a thick, white, dou­ble-layer coat.

It takes its name from the Samoyedic peo­ples of Siberia.

Th­ese no­madic rein­deer herders bred the fluffy white dogs to help with the herd­ing. An al­ter­nate name for the breed, es­pe­cially in Europe, is Bjelkier.
