Well, it's very obviously not an AED because the coat is a medium-length plush coat with no feathering.I was going to guess American Eskimo but you probably would know better than I would. How can you tell it's a Siberian Husky and not an AE?
Yeah, I can see now, that it's two different dogs, sorry for that - and as far as I can understand, there seems to be different kinds of breeds of these white coated dogs.ETA: that's two different dogs. The first is definitely a husky. The second I still think is a mix or a very unusual husky (not because of the color and eyes, which are very common, but because of the structure.)
Those are Samoyeds. They're significantly bigger than the AED, and while they're all in the greater spitz family, they're not terribly closely related to the AED.http://www.thebubbler.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/223/size/big/
They are very thick coated, and seem like dogs of the Spitz type.
I just did a Yahoo search. Here is the national Samoyed Rescue group:Ahhh finally, the Samoyeds was what I was really looking for, medium-big, thick- and whited coated. Thank you very much and thanks for the insight!
Do you have know if they're difficult to get your hands on? And do they cost? I see they're referred to as Bjelkier in Europe.
