The Russian Toy
The Russian Toy or Russkiy Toy was originally bred as a rat dog and alert dog.
In the time that we have been living with this small breed, I can affirm that they are very cheerful and sociable dogs.
They love being with people and other dogs, they are very affectionate and loyal to all members of the family, and they will always try to protect them from any danger.
The Russian Toys love to accompany their owners anywhere. They are able to enjoy a long walk or a quiet afternoon at home.
They can be a little reserved with strangers, but well introduced, in a moment they will try to include them also in their games.
We have seen that they are very smart, they learn commands very quickly and they are easy to train. They have a very good sense of smell and they love to track. They have a very good character, easy to deal with and never get angry.
From my point of view, one of the main advantages of this breed is its easy maintenance. Even long-haired Russian Toy are easy to groom and with a bath every two or three weeks they keep their hair in perfect condition. They are silent and only bark if they detect any danger. They are genetically very strong, agile and healthy.
If you are looking for a small dog that can share your life and your bag, the Russian Toy will be your choice.
