My name is Patricia Kreif ( Pat ).
My husband Frank and I founded West Free Samoyeds in 1973.
Our journey with our Loving Samoyeds has taken us into showing in conformation, obedience, dog sledding, agility, hiking, biking skijoring, herding, weight pulling and experiencing the undeniable love one receives when owning our beautiful Samoyeds.
After finishing our first show dog Ch. West Free's Chip A Way "Chipper", we were hooked. We decided to begin a breeding program. After doing extensive research and communication with fellow Samoyed breeders, we began our breeding program with our foundation bitch Am. Can. Ch. Moonlighter's Ima Better Bet "Bettsie". Who produced our Ch. West Free Bet On Tuff Stuff "Tuffy" and our next foundation bitch Ch. West Free's A Del Ice Sar "Ice". Ice then produced Ch. West Free's Double Oh Seven "Bond" and so on.
Through the years we have had multiple Am. and Can. Champions and Champion offspring from those Champions.
Our love of the Samoyed Breed has always driven us to breed only great examples of the breed by selecting only those who maintain the Standard set by the Samoyed Club of America and AKC to preserve its beauty, soundness, temperament and health.
We have always tried to present only those that are worthy of being Champions.
We have been members in good standing with the Greater Milwaukee Samoyed Fanciers and the Samoyed Club of America for almost as long as our kennel has been founded. We are also members in good standing with the Fond du Lac Kennel Club. Through working in the clubs, association with club members and the friends we've made with other Sammy people, we're always learning and striving to offer the best in puppies and breeding.
