Answer by squeaky
I have a 6 lb Pom now and used to own a 110 lb. Samoyed, so I would say there is a 104 lb. diff between the 2.
Answer by Dogs Rules
Very little – they are both dogs with 4 legs, a tail, a fur coat and 42 teeth. Neither can speak English, read a book nor use the text facilities on a mobile phone.
You may notice that the adult samoyed is about 10 times the height and weight of the pomeranian however.
Neither breed qualifies as the best guard dog.
I hope this helps.
Answer by Linda Tienda
This question was probably posed due to the fact that the two dog breeds look similar, duh.
Answer by walter n
1) a Samoyed is all white and a larger dog of the working class and the Pomeranian is a small dog of the toy class
2) any dog that you train the right way to protect your family and property. I prefer Rottweilers myself.
Answer by animal_artwork
Neither are good guard dogs. Pomeranians are probably better at being watch dogs as they are more prone to barking at strangers.
Samoyeds are 40-65 lbs. Poms are 4-8 lbs.
Samoyeds are likely to invite a thief in and beg for cookies.
Answer by durdenslabs
I suggest you do some research about breeds before posting questions that seem as ridiculous as this one.
Go to akc.org and look up "samoyed" and "pomeranian". One is a medium to large dog with long hair and the other is a very small dog. If I had to pick between the two I'd pick the Samoyed, especially if you're looking for any type of "guard" dog.
Answer by dymond
Size, color,temperament,they are totally different breeds.A pom is a small dog a Samoy is a med to large dog.Poms make a lot of noise but are scardy cats. The samoy would be a better guard dog also better with kids then poms.
Answer by ಌ DP
Huge difference, you should look at the AKC website and view both dogs and their standards.. Best guard dog?? Well you might want to think about a different breed entirely. If you are looking for a dog that will bark and alert you, either of those will bark. But they aren't guard dogs.
Answer by rescue member
About 100 pounds – go to the AKC website and look up these two breeds = you will see they are not even remotely alike.
Best guard dog is one who has been well trained to be a guard dog.
