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 in UK.
I'm not interesting in English Toy Terrier. I know they are alike and I'm not going to buy it, because I'm in love with Russian Toy Terrier.

Could it be because the breed doesn't actually exist?
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".
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.

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 it's a difficult 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. They costs less...
So situation is not bright, but keep looking…
