Samoyeds really began 1972 when husband Dick saw a Samoyed
in the backyard of a friend's neighbor. He decided that the
beautiful, smiling white dog would be the breed of choice
for the LaFortune family. Our first Sam was purchased at a
pet store and given the name of "Just Sam" -- Sammy for
short. Unfortunately she lived only 11 months but in that
short time she began a love of the Samoyed breed that is
still going strong. Our second Sam, also a female, was
again purchased at a pet store and named "Just Sam 2"(we
were really creative). Seven years later we felt we had
room for another Sam. We contacted Bobbi Benaman of
Barasof Samoyeds and in 1981 we purchased our first show
dog, Ch. Barasof's Sno-Barron (Bear's pedigree was mainly
the old Misty Way Kennels of Peggy McCarthy) and we were bit
by the "Bug" (showing, breeding, sledding etc).
After a 10 year time out to
raise a 2 legged family, Lynette Blue of Polar Mist Samoyeds
was contacted and Ch. Polar Mist Dream Catcher joined our
pack. The bug bit again and the rest is history.
Here at Buckroe, we strive to breed
genetically clear, well-balanced, free-moving "typey"
dog with a sound temperament. We believe that a safe,
clean environment, coupled with lots of play time,
capitalizes on good genetics to bring out the best
qualities of our dogs.
Buckroe is proud to follow the
highest breeding standards and requirements.
Breeding is planned after careful attention to pedigrees
in an effort to emphasize good health, personality, and
Continuous socialization is vital
throughout each pup's development. At appropriate ages,
Buckroe Samoyeds receive daily interaction from a

traction. Games like this, along with numerous
toys and chews help build confidence and security in the
curious puppies. [more]
We do not do regularly
scheduled breedings. As a result, each litter of puppies
is special to us. They become members of our family, and
we are very concerned about where they are placed. It is
important to us that each puppy be just as beloved and
spoiled by their new family.
