Snoki is the first dog I own of another breed than Siberian Husky. They are in the same familygroup of dogs, primitive spitz breeds,both from Siberia,  but are different in many ways.
Snokis close relatives are born and live in Yakutskregion, the worlds coldest inhabitated place. Wintertemps in the 40ths belowe zero are quite common
Snokis parents are both russian, but her mother was sold to Finland in whelp.
Snoki is a puppy still. A fun, smart, naughty furbundle. She is a foodhog indeed and learns really fast. That doesn t mean she allways listen:)
She is very into using her nose when we go for walks- that is more interesting than pulling so far. As I understand it, yakutians mature slower then the sibes, so the harnessworking will be prosponed til she is 9-10 months.
Also this breed prone to different defects like HD, spondylosis,Pra, deafness I anxiously await her health tests. But she is for sure not deaf, she hear the slightest sounds from other side of the property
Main difference from the sibes in daily  life is her barking. Yakutians prone to bark much more than siberians, some little, some moderate, some a  lot. Snoki is a guarding dog when it comes to her barking habits. When we are not at home she hardly makes a sound.
Exept for that, she is a very calm and quiet dog  in the yard.
So far she is submissive and gets along well with the sibes.
She is a bit sceptic and use some time with strangers, espescially when they enter my house and she is inside, but she likes people and to be petted

Snoki has a sound build with fluid movements and the fur is getting thicker and thicker. My own little muskox:)
Snoki has charmed many people allreaddy, with her diabolic face, soft fur and cool ways. Looking forward to her future!
