History of origin

The history of the Russian Toy Terrier began on the shores of medieval England. Mysterious cities were swarming with hordes of rats who carried dangerous diseases. The small brave rat-catchers fought the invasion, causing the people's love and gratitude. Gradually, the streets of cities became cleaner, and the need for rat-rat dogs fell away. And small cute toy-terriers migrated to the boudoir ladies, as companions and living fleas. Russian toy terrier lies

In Russia, the English toy-terrier came in the middle of the 19th century and was kept by well-off ladies, and after the revolution many "white-bone" darlings wandered and crossed with mongrels. Only in the middle of the twentieth century domestic dog breeders engaged in breeding decorative rocks, including tiny tochikov.

From abroad, thoroughbred producers were not brought into our country, and the breeders had to work with the existing material. The Toy Terrier was "created" anew and turned out to be quite far from the ancestor of the ex-terrier. In 1957, from a pair of smooth-haired mini-terriers with a pedigree, a descendant appeared - Chikki. The puppy had a wool longer than the standard, and it was recorded in the rejected ones.

By the will of chance, he gets to Zharova EF. and here, in the Moscow nursery, began breeding work on the breeding of long-haired breed of toy terriers. The Moscow dog breeders secured a favorable external difference, and gradually the Russian toy-terrier found a pretty fimbria on the ears and paws. Russian Toy Terriers

These differences were so weighty that the new breed got its own name, and it also required the creation and approval of a new standard for small Russian tachikov. Thanks to E.F. Zharova managed to achieve in 1966 the recognition of the breed and the approval of standards.

By 1969, 300 pedigrees were issued, which, given the fecundity of the dogs, is impressive. But Yevgenia Fominichna was removed from the leadership of the Moscow City Society of Decorative Dog Breeding, and the work on the breed stopped, the popularity of the dogs began to fall, especially as with the fall of the "curtain" a stream of representatives of various ornamental rocks poured into the country.

Only at the end of the twentieth century. the breed of the Moscow toy-terrier literally bit by bit was restored. Already in the 90's the cost of the pups increased sharply, and the queue for the purchase stretched for several years.

The breed was specially displayed as decorative, therefore such character traits as absence of aggression, friendliness, complaisance were welcomed. It is such a character and has a Russian Toychik. But, despite the toy appearance, the dog is very brave, active and always ready to protect its owner.

A thin rumor allows you to notice the danger, and a sonorous, barking barking - to notify your master about it, to which the dog is completely devoted. Completely realize the quality of the guard the terrier does not allow its dimensions. But fearlessness and a desire to protect in this tiny heart will suffice for a huge dog.

He is considered an excellent companion of secular lionesses and elderly ladies.

Toy-Terrier is very affectionate and loves when he is paid attention. Pesik has a natural wit and it is easy to train even a teenager of 12-15 years. But, despite the complaisance and lack of leadership qualities, the dog needs control and attention, otherwise the temperamental animal will look for an outlet of ebullient energy, which will lead not only to damage to property, but can also lead to the development of aggressiveness.


Thanks to the cleverness of the training of the toy-terrier is not very difficult. With perseverance, consistency and goodwill, the pet quickly learns the basic commands and with special zeal and desire fulfills the requirements.

  • impaired dentition;
  • Legg-Calvet-Perthes disease or aseptic form of necrosis of the head of the femur;
  • hydrocephalus;
  • atlantoaxial instability;
  • hypoglycemia.

Do not be frightened at seeing such an impressive list of diseases. They are characteristic of all mini-breeds. Naturally, when removing babies, some systems suffer, but the Russian toy terrier wins against other dwarf breeds and is more resistant to genetic pathologies. Obviously, the inflow of "mongrel" blood and the recent onset of breeding are affected.

In addition to hereditary, these babies can have pathologies due, in the first place, to the anatomical structure and characteristics of the immune system, for example:

  1. Follicular conjunctivitis.
  2. Pancreatitis. Russian toy terrier on an orange background
  3. Allergy - very common in the toy terriers disease. The representatives of this breed noted: food allergy; allergy to the products of vital activity and saliva of blood-sucking insects, in particular fleas; atopic dermatitis, caused by pollen allergy to plants, mold, dust, household chemicals and other types of allergens.

Proper care and regular visits to the veterinary clinic will help prevent the emergence of many pathologies. Babies need vaccinations, care for their ears and eyes, prevention of dental pathologies.

Special care doggie does not require. Smooth-haired toy terriers enough to bathe once a month, and long-haired once in 2-3 weeks. Combing the long-haired is daily, if the owner wants the dog to look well-groomed. Short hair once or twice a week "smooth" with a special brush or mitten. Since the dogs practically do not shed, there are no problems with the fallen hair in the apartment.

Requires a regular, once every 1.5-2 months, care for the claws of the dog. The small weight and subtility of the toy terrier do not allow claws to stitch in a natural way, so they need to be cut. If the owner does not know how to do this or is afraid to injure his pet, you can contact the veterinary clinic or special salons that serve pets. Russian Toy Terrier Runs

Miniature sizes, absence of a padding cause the temperature sensitivity of mini terriers. Therefore, when walking in cool weather, the dog needs warm clothes. In hot weather, it should also be protected from overheating - moisten with water, give more drink, less under direct sunlight.

How to properly feed and keep a mini-dog

Those owners of the toy terriers who feed them with dry fodder do not have difficulty in compiling the ration. Since the finished feed contains all the necessary substances. It is more difficult for someone who uses natural products. In the diet of an adult Russian toy should be the following products:

  • meat of low-fat varieties, by-products - 30-40%; Russian Toy Terriers are charming
  • vegetables raw and thermally processed (boiled, stewed) - 20-25%;
  • porridges, mainly easily digestible, for example, rice and buckwheat - 30-35%;
  • fruit - about 10%;
  • sour-milk products should not be carried away, occasionally you can add kefir, cottage cheese, fermented biscuit with a low percentage of fat content to the ration.

Adult dogs are fed twice a day. The smaller the puppy, the more frequent the feeding. Tojchikov should not be overfed, as they, like many mini-breeds, tend to obesity, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus. When the natural form of feeding in the feed, without fail, add vitamin-mineral complexes and supplements. Recommendations for the complexes can give the veterinarian.
