I hope to have one of these again some day... I had one for 13 years, and she was absolutely amazing, and I miss her SO MUCH, even after 10 years..This is Black Russian Terrier, and my first love...lol...I love all kinds of animals,hense the ZOO at home...lol...but this dog is my first love...

..The one with short hair was rescued from a place where she was kept in the tiny back yard, wasnt fed properly, never brushed, so the hair was all tangled so bad they had to shave her to make it possible to clean her up...Luckily, she was not abused more than that, and recovered well, and was matched up with a lady who takes care of her so well, she now looks like a brand new dog...
the other one belongs to a friend, and I ALWAYS visit when I am in the area to play with him...

Hehe.. they are quite big...about 90-100 lbs...They were bred in Ex-Soviet Union by the "red army" (its was really KGB, trust me...lol), and are working dogs. They are now in process of being recognized by the CKC and AKC, heres a link if you wanna know more... http://www.canadasguidetodogs.com/blackrussian.htm
