Because we can’t get enough of dogs.
From Russia Beyond the Headlines, the “10 Popular dog breeds native to Russia” gives us the top ten breeds of man’s best friend that come from Russia. From sheepdogs to shepherds and toy terriers, the size, color, and purpose of these dogs are as unique and diverse as Russian culture itself.
My personal favorite is the Russian Black Terrier, which function as a police dog to guard prisoners. These dogs, which can weigh up to 150lbs, are not strictly terriers, despite their name. It is that that they are mixed with seventeen different breeds, including Rottweilers and Giant Schnauzers.
