Hello how’s it going, Today I am going to finish off the Toy Breed Doggies for you to check out some facts about them and if they could be a good choice and fit for you. So on to the show 🙂

Russian Toy

Russian ToyThe Russian Toy (also known as the Russian Toy Terrier, and in Russia as the Russkiy Toy, these were originally bred in Russia from the English Toy Terrier. The two types of the breed are long coat and short coat.

The temperament of a Russian Toy is active and cheerful, the Russian Toy was originally bred both as an anti-rat dog and a watchdog. Another quality is still active in the breed, and they can be very vocal.

They can become quite attached to their family, regardless of the ages of the family members. Russian Toys are usually very reserved with strangers, but very loyal to their owners, always ready to protect them from any perceived danger.

Russian Toys life expectancy is 11 years. They are one of the smallest dog breeds and although great family doggies children should be supervised with them not to hurt them because of their size.

Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka

Russian Tsvetnaya BolonkaRussian Tsvetnaya Bolonka (Russian: Болонка), also known as the Bolonka Zwetna in Germany, is a rare toy breed of the Bichon type, developed in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Coming from the ancestors of smaller dogs such as the Bichon, Toy Poodle, Shih Tzu, Pekingese, and French Bolognese. They include the white version Franzuskaya Bolonka, which is a variation of the Italian Bolognese.

Tsvetnaya Bolonka is even-tempered, playful, very intelligent, friendly to all, easy-going, and affectionate breed specifically developed as a companion dog and is prized for its sociability.

However, it won’t be able to apply to necessary aggression when the situation calls for it and shouldn’t be tasked with the responsibilities of a guardian. This is not a doggie for small children and is recommended as a companion only.

They carry a life expectancy of 12 to 16 years. Do not require much exercise a couple of walks a day and they can play inside and be content.

Silky Terrier

Silky TerrierThe Australian Silky Terrier or simply Silky Terrier is a small breed of dog of the terrier dog type. The breed was developed in Australia, although the ancestral types and breeds were from Great Britain.

The Australian Silky Terrier temperament is keenly alert, active, inquisitive, responsive, friendly, joyful, and quick. They love to be given chances to run and play but must have a tightly fenced yard. They also enjoy brisk walks and playing ball.

Silky terriers do well in an apartment, although they are also an active indoor breed. It is important they are kept busy and social to discourage boredom. Can be a great family dog with children over the age of 10 years.

They love to sit on laps and do “toy dog” things but have an easy going more laid back Terrier personality ready for just about any activity. Their life expectancy is 12 to 15 years and comes in the following colors Black & Tan, Grey & Tan, Blue & Tan, Silver & Tan, and Silver Black & Tan.

Toy Fox Terrier

Toy Fox TerrierThe Toy Fox Terrier is a small terrier breed of dog, directly descended from the larger Fox Terrier but considered a separate breed. Breeders have traced their dogs’ lineage back to a Smooth Fox Terrier called “Foiler”, in Britain circa 1875-1876.

Toy Fox Terriers, like many active and intelligent breeds, and they are said to make great companions for owners with a good sense of humor, quick to bark, quick to chase, lively, bossy, feisty, scrappy, clever, stubborn, persistent, and impulsive.

They are quite trainable and make wonderful companions for older people and people with disabilities. They are also very lovable and loyal to their owners. In addition, dogs of this breed tend not to bark very much if they are trained well.

I don’t recommend Toy Fox Terriers for homes with young children. Life expectancy of the Toy Fox Terrier ranges from 13 to 14 years. Toy Fox Terrier colors are Black & White, Tricolor, White & Tan, and White & Chocolate.

Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire TerrierThe Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills.

The typical fine, straight and silky Yorkshire Terrier coat has been listed by many popular dog information websites as being hypoallergenic and in comparison with many other breeds, they do not shed to the same degree, only losing small amounts of hair when bathed or brushed.

The Yorkie temperament is bold, independent, intelligent, confident, courageous, active, very overprotective, curious and fond of attention. With the nature of these little doggies is not recommended for homes with small children.

Yorkie are easily adaptable to all surroundings and travel well. Due to their small size, they require limited exercise but need daily interaction with people. They thrive on attention and love, but they are timid around other dogs and prefer to stay close to their humans for comfort.

Yorkshire Terriers do tend to bark a lot. The life expectancy of this tiny little one is 13 to 16 years. Great companion dogs for the elderly with liking to travel and be with their human. 1000s of Designer Dog Collars, Leashes & More.
