Lynndie Sunday: why i cant find Russian Toy Terrier in UK ?
I love this dog breed Russian Toy terrier, I'm ready to buy it, but i cant find it UK.
I'm not interesting in English Toy Terrier. I know they alike and I'm not going to buy it, because I'm in love with Russian Toy Terrier.

Maybe you haven't been looking hard enough.
I typed it on on google and loads came up.
YOU need to make sure the parents have health testings done and are pedigrees.
YOU need to make sure your buying from a good breeder.
Just found this http://russkiytoys.webs.com/index.htm go and have a look on there as well.

Russian Toy terriers are lovely dogs and I was looking for one here in UK for ages… However is not that easy to find this breed in UK due to several issues:
1. Not very well known breed (thus that many answers say that the breed doesn't exist hahaha) thus only few breeders or breeding dogs
2. Only few puppies in a litter
3. Existing breeders fiercely protect the market – they wont allow other people to breed the dogs they bought from them. This enables them to charge loads for every puppy
3. There are lots of breeders and dogs available in Eastern Europe, but you cant import the puppy to UK without going through that ridiculous quarantine process…
However there are two kennels here in UK – one in Kent and another in Ireland so if you are ready to pay for a puppy £1000 -£1500 you can try and give them a call… I cant afford it so I keep looking for puppies who were imported somehow avoiding the quarantine ;) They costs around £350…
So situation is not bright, but keep looking… And let me know in case you find two!!! :)

Could it be because the breed doesn't actually exist? O_o
Looks like another backyard breeder scam.
These "dogs" look like Papillon/Chihuahua mixes. I don't know of any kennel club that recognizes a "Russian Toy Terrier". Just because you write a "breed standard" on your website, does not make it legit.
Can someone please show me evidence that a "Russian Toy Terrier" actually exists as a real recognized breed? I don't see it recognized with the AKC, CKC or the UKC.
There is the Russkiy Toy that is recognized by the UKC. But I have never heard of a Russian Toy Terrier and if there is some sort of mix-up with the names I would be very wary about what a "breeder" is advertising their dogs as.
I definitley understand that just because a KC doesn't recognize a breed doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Believe me I do.
But so far the evidence I have seen with this "breed" has been a lot of garbage being bred and passed off as though it's something it isn't.
