Is the Tsvetnaya Bolonka right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Bolonka Zwetnaya; Russian Bolonka; Bolonka-Zwetna; bunte Schoßhündchen; Deutscher Bolonka

The basics:
The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is a rare toy breed probably first developed in Russia from the Bichon Frisé and then further developed in Germany. They are small, cute, and playful-- and would fit well into an apartment if only they were easier to find. Their Bichon Frisé ancestors probably arrived in Russia from France, thanks to the close links between French and Russian aristocrats before the Russian Revolution. After the Revolution, of course, the links were severed, and the Russian animals began to be developed in isolation from the western toys. Now they are slowly being discovered. The American Kennel Club is recording them in their Foundation Stock Service, a step on the path to recognizing the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka in the US.

Appearance / health:
The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is a small sturdy toy dog with curly hair. Their name means "colored Bichon" in Russian, which gives you a pretty good idea of what you're getting.

Behavior / temperament:
Bred to be a constant companion, this portable pet lives to be the center of attention. They will not be happy if they are neglected and left alone for long hours of the day. Fortunately, their size makes them easy to bring along.

Tsvetnaya Bolonka

http://ahavapicarobolonkas.homestead.com/historyofbreed.html - I became obsessed with owning one, despite the high purchase price. The second hurdle was finding a local (Canadian) breeder. To my delight, I found one living in the country with a year old male pup that I adopted and took home. It was love at first sight with his 'swiffer mop' tussled coat. While it's difficult to find someone who won't trim and groom him like a poodle, I brush and comb my guy Boris (aka "BoBo") daily. Immensely loyal, he was a little slow bonding with me, and the sights and sounds of his new home (apartment living) in the big city. He has the sweetest disposition, is a good eater, and wants to play with all dogs every day, every walk... (and if he had his way, every cat). He comes with me visiting family and friends and their babies and toddlers. They're charmed by his propeller tail and adorable face. I miss I didn't have him as a puppy. I hear they are giant little puff balls of joy. I highly recommend this dog to any owner, if you can find them..
