Black Russian Terrier Puppies
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 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.
