TNT Samoyeds was established in 1989 after the marriage of Tom and Toni Maurer. Tom, a transplanted Northeasterner devoted to both sledding and showing, had already been in the breed since the early '70s. Toni's involvement with dogs dates from 1979 putting obedience titles on both her Belgian Sheepdog and her Siberian Husky, and a Champion title on her Belgian.
The two Samoyeds that formed the foundation of the Maurers' breeding program were acquired in 1989 (BISS Ch. K-Way's Star Dancer of TNT (STAR) and 1990 (Ch. K-Ways Rainbow Maker of TNT(CRYSTAL) from Bob and Wanda Krauss of K-Ways Samoyeds.
