    Nooo they are not the same. Thais originate from Thailand, Shamos from Japan. Shamos are usually bigger, a lot more meaty and lengthy, and with less tail than Thais, while Thais even have a shorter set neck. They hold less of a pea-comb than Thais, (a much more vulture type look) and don't have as many recognized colors. Also, Shamos are APA recognized - Thais are not. I am sure a breeder can tell you a lot more of their differences.
