Is anyone familiar with this breed of dog?? I have never heard of it, there is an ad for some pups close by me and im really curious. The only information I can find is from the "breeders" advertisment.

They look cute, not my kind of dog though. Apparently Rare, however selling for dirt cheap.:frustrated:

This is what I found on the breed


The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is part of the Bichon family. A more modern type of the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka appeared in parts of Russia in the 1950?s. These dogs were crosses between the Bichon Frise and the Shih Tzu. Smaller bearded poodles and longhaired terriers were also added into some of the lines. ?Tsvetnaya Bolonka? means colored bichon. This breed comes in many different colors.

their full name Russian tsvetnaya bolonka. meaning colourful lapdog. it was "made" in the 1950s by mating a bischon and a shiz tzu, and some added blood lines from poodles and small long haired terrier dogs
