Russian Toy

Active and very cheerful, Russian Toys may have a brilliant future going for them as small dogs become increasingly popular.

About the Russian Toy

Save Borzois, Russian breeds are typically imposing working dogs, so the Russian Toy has everything to be a very popular companion dog.

There is a marked difference between males and females in terms of behavior, but not in terms of appearance. Despite this, both are loving family dogs and will involve themselves in anything taking place in the home.
