The Pictures below are from the Discovery Channel DVD "Raising the Mammoth" DVD- 10599. These Images have been captured from the DVD to illustrate the aboriginal dogs and are for non-profit purposes. Please buy the DVD if you wish to see the moving images.

Some of the dogs on this page look like the modern Samoyed but it has yet to be determined just how close they are genetically. Readers are encouraged to read this article on the OLENEGONKA for further discussion.
