On July 19, 2014, the Samoyed world lost a leader when Greg Newell passed away after a battle with Nodular Melanoma. He was only 61.

Greg was an engineer who started samoyed.org in 1995. When this website first went up, most folks still had never heard of the Internet. There was only a very small audience. The idea of using the internet for Samoyed Rescue was so unique that CBS did a feature on it.

Since that time Greg's efforts resulted in hundreds of Samoyeds finding a new home. He hosted countless websites for friends, and was always there when someone needed him.

Samoyed.org will continue to be there for any Samoyed who needs help, and we dedicate this site to Greg's memory.

Greg Newell is survived by his wife Denise, their dogs and other animals, and uncountable friends.
