The Russkiy Toy, as its name suggests, comes from Russia. His ancestors are the English Toy Terriers - these small dogs were once known and loved as luxury dogs in Russia. From the 1950s, an own breed, the Russkiy Toy, was bred from English toy terriers and dogs without pedigree. In 2006 the dog breed was recognized by the FCI.

The Russkiy Toy and its character

If you are looking for a dog that is always in a good mood, active and playful, the Russkiy Toy is certainly well advised. The petite dog is full of energy, agile, nimble and attentive. His loving, loyal character also distinguishes him. At almost 30 centimeters, the dog is quite small, but is usually not at all afraid. Aggressive behavior is far from him and he copes well with his own kind.

In addition, the four-legged friend from Russia is docile, affectionate and fond of children. It is very important to him to please his people, so that his dog training should also succeed very well with the appropriate empathy.

A smart and playful dog

If you want to train the Russkiy Toy or teach it tricks, it will be easy. The intelligent four-legged friend learns at lightning speed and enjoys working in a team with its owners - especially when motivated with a lot of praise. With his eager character and high willingness to learn, he is also a talented little dog athlete: agility, dog dancing or obedience training are just the thing for him.
