 Dogs - Russian Black Terriers (RBT)


Russian Black Terriers are also called black terriers or tchiorny terriers, and were previously known as Black Russian Terriers. A fierce-looking black terrier in the yard has a deterring effect on burglars!

Black terriers were bred in Russia for use in the Russian army. They need to be worked with, and trained. Puppies should be taken to a puppy socialization class.

A large yard and lots of exercise is needed for this large breed. The weight of large breeds can put stress on the limbs, so ask the breeder if the parents have been tested for hip dysplasia.
