So you’re looking to adopt an Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka, or Bolonka for short, is a member of the Bichon family that was almost extinct until after the Cold War. It is a small companion dog that is hypoallergenic, funny, clever beyond words and intensely loyal to its family. Some are excellent mimics; others are content to sit by the door and monitor who is allowed in or out. Spirited, yet easy-going and sociable, the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is great with children. Although they are quick to alert, they will not be a constant barker with early training on appropriate behavior. They are fairly independent for a toy breed and require early socialization with people. However, Bolonki do get along well with dogs and other animals. Very clever and smart, they do well in formal training such as obedience, rally, tracking and agility when trained with a firm, but gentle, hand. Russkaya Tsvetnaya Bolonka translates to “Russian Colored Lapdog.” Bolonki were originally bred to be the ultimate house pet for apartment living. Sweet, loving, intelligent, and willing to please, he is friendly to all and shows no sign of aggression.”
An Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka typically ranges from 22.86cm to 25.4cm in height, and weighs from 2.0411656650000003kg to 4.9895160700000005kg.
