Description: The Black Russian Terrier is a large to massive dog who's black hair has a distinctive "fall" and a "beard" on their head. Known for appearing as if they can't see, Black Russians originally served in the Russian military. There are very few Terrier Noir Tusse in the U.S. today, as Russia has banned exportation of these giants. There is a more abundant amount of them in Russia where they serve as family pets and protectors. They need to be part of the family as this is a breed that will seek intense contact with humans. They want to please their owner, so they will try anything you ask of them! Blackies, as they have been called, were bred to be agile, tough, weatherproof and energetic. They are calm, courageous, and confident. They tend be wary of strangers, but are determined to protect the family at all costs. They may also be wary of stranger or dominant dogs, but are usually fine with pets and smaller dogs. The Black Russian Terriers are large, powerful dogs that are full of muscle. They have a thick double coat of medium - long hairs. Males are said to be noticeably more masculine than the females in appearance. They are stable and adaptable dogs. Black Russian Terriers are considered the jack-of-all-trades of dog-dom. These scruffy, affectionate soldiers are able to do almost anything: protection, herding, skijorring, obedience, tracking, sled dog, agility and show dog.
