Our dog breeding kennel, the Ruski Izvor (FCI registration # 4160), is into breeding of Caucasian Ovcharka (CO) and Central Asian Ovcharka (CAO) dogs for quite a long time. We own and run the kennel with my husband, Dragan, in a quiet and beautiful place not far from Beograd.
Our first Caucasian Shepherds were brought from Russia in 1995, and since then we remain devoted to this wonderful breed. The first two dogs, pure white NURDAN and NURBEK, had all the qualities of the real Caucasians - loyalty, generosity, and intelligence. Later we obtained a locally bred dog, BEG. This magnificent dog had won many prizes at the international exhibitions, and finally became the multi-champion in 1998 and 2000.
Wishing to develop our breeding material, we bought two females from Russia – IVETA, and NIJANA. Both of them soon became champions, and they are now the breeding basis of our kennel. We are sure that their breeding career will be successful.
Dragan and I make our best to keep our dogs comfortable. Their cages are large enough, and there is a big yard and a fenced space for walks. We cooperate with the best breeders in Russia and other countries.
I’d like to thank you for your interest in these fascinating Russian dog breeds – the Caucasian Shepherd, and the Central Asian Shepherd. If you happen to visit Beograd you’ll be very welcome to Ruski Izvor dog breeding kennel. We’ll do our best to present these breeds to you in their best colors, and will help you to get to know them as well as possible. Dragan and I are absolutely sure: once you know them - you'll love them.
