Black Russian Terrier
Developed by the Soviet Army, the Black Russian Terrier is the perfect working dog.
Height: 26 to 30 inches at shoulder
Weight: 80 to 140 pounds
Coat: long and wavy
Life span: 10 to 11 years
Breed Group: Working Dogs
These majestic black beauties are highly intelligent, confident guard dogs who aren't actually true terriers. Relatively new and still a rare breed, Black Russian Terriers are working dogs who can protect a home or business, play with the family's children, and excel in agility and obedience competition. Known as the "Black Pearls of Russia," Blackies are people-oriented and want to be close to the action at all times. They tend to be a bit aloof around strangers, including dogs they don't know, but they're devoted to their families--and they don't bark or shed much. They have large bones and well-developed muscles, creating a vibrant, flowing impression. Like Henry Ford's first cars, Blackies are available in black, black, or black.
