History of origin

The history of the Russian toy terrier began on the shores of medieval England. Polluted with sewage, the city was swarming with hordes of rats that carried dangerous diseases.

The English toy terrier got to Russia in the middle of the 19th century and was provided by their wealthy ladies, and after the revolution, many of the favorites of the “white bone” wandered and interbred with curs. Only in the mid-twentieth century, domestic dog breeders began breeding decorative breeds, including tiny toychikov.

Pedigree manufacturers were not imported into our country from abroad, and the factory owners had to work with the existing material. The toy terrier was “created” anew and turned out to be very far from the progenitor on the exterior. In 1957, a descendant of Chikki appeared from a pair of sleek-haired mini terriers with a pedigree. The puppy was longer than the standard, the wool and it was recorded in the culled.

By chance he gets to Zharova E.F. and here, in a Moscow kennel, selection work began on the breeding of the long-haired breed of toy-terriers. The Moscow dog breeders secured a favorable external difference, and gradually the Russian toy terrier found a pretty fringe on the ears and legs. Russian toy terrier

But Yevgeny Fominichnu was removed from the leadership of the Moscow City Society of Decorative Dog Breeding, and work on the breed stopped, the popularity of dogs began to fall, especially since the fall of the “curtain” poured a stream of representatives of various decorative breeds into the country.

Only at the end of the twentieth century. Moscow breed toy terrier literally bit by bit managed to recover. Already in the 90s, the cost of puppies has increased dramatically, and the queue for the purchase lasted for several years.

Little dog care does not require. Smooth toy Terrier enough to bathe once a month, and long-haired once every 2-3 weeks. It is necessary to comb longhair every day, if the owner wants the dog to look well-groomed. Shorthair enough once a week to “smooth” with a special brush or mitten. Since the dogs practically do not shed, then there are no problems with loose wool in the apartment.

It takes regular, once every 1.5-2 months, care for the dog's claws. The light weight and subtlety of the toy terrier do not allow the claws to grind off in a natural way, so they need to be cut. If the owner does not know how to do this or is afraid to hurt his pet, you can contact the veterinary clinic or special salons serving pets. Russian toy terrier runs
