Samoyed Standard and Color

Posted By on February 7, 2011

Hello all!

We have been apparently having some confusion on what color a proper Samoyed is. Many are under the impression that pure white is the only color, and anything else it not a show dog.

Just so you all know, Rico, the father of this current litter, is not pure white and he is an AKC Champion.

So, here is what the AKC Standard for Samoyed’s says:

Color – Samoyeds should be pure white, white and biscuit, cream, or all biscuit. Any other colors disqualify

Here is the link for those who want to read it: AKC Samoyed Standard

While looking for prime examples of a Samoyed that is not pure white, I found Bud. Thank you Suntrip Samoyeds (Ann) for giving me permission to use his image.

Take care and be safe!

    An FYI. I was recently reading the FCI standard. It states that the “ground color” must be white or cream. They cannot be completely biscuit (not to appear completely tan). The AKC standard does not make this distinction.
