Russian Toy - The Breed

The Russian Toy, in spite of its tiny, petite size and appearance is very active, agile and has an excellent character. They are best described as bold, fearless and rarely show signs of aggression. The Russian Toy can be very territorial by nature and will defend and stand guard for the owner, its family and their possessions.

Russian Toys are extremely loyal and make the perfect companion lap dog, they love snuggling around you and will let you know when they feel neglected! The Russian Toy is a very fast learner and can be trained with great ease. They possess and share some qualities of the terrier breed nature. Two different coat types are available to choose from: Long haired and short haired (sometimes referred to as smooth coat).

Russian Toys come in many colour varieties and those recognised by FCI standards are blue-tan & brown-tan and varieties of red - including red-brown and red-sable. You may come across colours of lilac-tan and pale yellow, these possess a weakened colour gene and are not recognised as standard breed colour at the moment.

The Russian Toy is extremely sociable with adults and children alike, as well other varieties of pets and will, without doubt be an amazing and charming addition to any family!

Russian Toy Care:

Nutrition & Feeding

Depending on the size of your dog as an adult you are going to want to feed them a formula that will cater to their unique digestive needs through the various phases of their life. Many dog food companies have breed-specific formulas for small, medium, large and giant breeds. Russian Toys are a small breed and may have a lifespan ranging from 12 to 14 years.

What you feed your dog is an individual choice, but working with your veterinarian and/or breeder will be the best way to determine frequency of meals as a puppy and the best adult diet to increase his longevity. Clean, fresh water should be available at all times.

Coat & Grooming

Beyond regular weekly grooming, the occasional bath will keep them clean and looking their best. Grooming can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your pet. Their strong fast-growing nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.

Energy & Exercise

Options for exercise include play time in the backyard, preferable fenced, or taken for walks several times a day. Exercise can also come in the form of indoor activities, like hide and seek, chasing a ball rolled along the floor, or teaching them new tricks. Depending on the breed, certain outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, retrieving balls or flying discs can provide a good outlet for expending energy. If you live in an apartment even short walks in the hallways can give your dog some exercise, especially during inclement weather. Training for dog sports like agility, obedience and rally can also be a great way to give your dog exercise.

Russian Toy & Health

Like all breeds there may be some health issues. Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Russian Toys are healthy dogs.

Working with a responsible breeder, those wishing to own as Russian Toys can gain the education they need to know about specific health concerns within the breed. Good breeders utilize genetic testing of their breeding stock to reduce the likelihood of disease in their puppies.
