NOTICE REGARDING FUTURE PUPPY AVAILABILITY UPDATED 10/31/2020 - PLEASE READ THIS PAGE THOROUGHLY BEFORE INQUIRING.
Thank you for your interest in a Vanderbilt Samoyed (VanSam) puppy! We are happy to work with suitable families to get you your next treasured family member and remain committed to "enhancing families, one VanSam at a time!".
The following is some info on potential future puppy availability effective 10/31/2020:
- There has been a significant increase in demand for puppies/dogs since the Covid-19 pandemic as families find themselves at home with more time to devote to training, etc. Unfortunately while the demand has increased, the supply has not. All reservations for our planned puppies have been filled through to ~ late Fall / early Winter 2020 so if you are desiring a puppy in that timeframe you'll need to try another breeder.
UPDATE: As of today 10/31/2020 we unfortunately have no additional 2021 reservations available. We will continue to update this page at the end of every month, so no need to keep checking it daily. If you continue to be interested in a VanSam please check this webpage again on 11/30/20 when we will post an update on the status of reservations. Thank you for your interest in Vanderbilt Samoyeds.
Once we have reservations to offer (next review/update 11/30/2020) we will post that on THIS PAGE and ask interested parties to email us with information on their family dynamic, location and past history of dog ownership. Families assessed to be ideal for VanSam ownership will given reservation/cost particulars and invited to complete our questionnaire to supply additional information if this are interested in pursuing a reservation with us. Please do not email us now requesting more information as we have nothing to offer.
We anticipate that we will be able to ship air cargo domestically within Canada to major airports and the limits of available direct routes and around any embargoes which may be imposed.
We should note that for the safety of everyone we currently offer no on-site visits and do have social distancing protocols in place for in-person pick ups of our puppies/dogs and this policy is provided to those accepted for our waiting list.
USA: Due to the current Covid-19 virus situation air cargo transport of our puppies is unavailable to the USA. Any USA families accepted for a reservation will be required to work with a bonded animal transport service to get their puppy over a land border crossing when it is of age to travel. We have found one that is working well so far. If you are interested in this service, please contact Pet Pro Services (PPS) directly and explain that the breeder would be near TORONTO, Ontario Canada and ask for logistics and a quote on their services BEFORE you attempt to reserve a puppy. NOTE: you will have to drive to a US/Canada land border crossing to meet the travel service on the USA side so please decide what would work best for you before contacting PPS.
If we have any ADULT availability it will be posted here.
Please be aware of the foregoing limitations before emailing or calling. Submissions/contact outside of these parameters will not receive a response.

We are excited to announce the soon anticipated mating of Tootsie to Boris. Tootsie (Danger x Sweetie) is a Champion show girl titled in both the USA and Canada. Additionally she is a curvaceous feminine Sam Lady with beautiful looks, structure and moves - and an absolute sweetheart to boot! Boris (Secret x Topper) has great intentions of being a Champion show dog once the covid pandemic is behind us and dog shows can return to some frequency in Canada. As a puppy Boris did however make a splash at the 2018 SAC National Specialty by winning Best Baby in Specialty. He's a handsome hunk of a Boy-Sam with personality to spare! We're very excited about this genetic combination as you ca see by the Samoyed Royalty in their pedigree (see link opposite)!
