Welcome to the Russian Toy Club of America
The official website of the Russian Toy Club of America, established in 2008.
It is such an exciting time for Russian Toy Fanciers! First the UK accepted the Russion Toy and then the Canadian Club accepted them. Now AKC has sent us a letter that we may now send in an application for moving our breed into Miscellaneous Class for 1 July 2018! After many years of working very hard, the light is at the end of the tunnel! I can't thank all the people enough who have worked so hard to make this happen!
Once we are accepted into Miscellaneous Class we will have even more hard work to get accepted fully and I know we are ready to do what is needed! Again, thank you everyone for all the work you have done to accomplish the realization of all our dreams!

About the Russian Toys
The Russian / Russkiy Toy is a little dog with an impish, yet delightful personality and are considered one of the smallest breeds in the world. They are are low coat maintenance, great lap companions and wonderful bed dogs who might sleep under the sheets. Their silly antics can brighten your day while making you have a good chuckle. The Russian toy is also a good little watch dog. They will let their family know if a stranger has arrived who might carry off the valuables in your home.
A well socialized Russian Toy can also be very suitable for performance competition, therapy and service work.
The Russian Toy comes in two coat varieties; the long and smooth. The Smooth Coat is close-lying and smooth to the touch, similar to that found in the or Manchester Terrier, Smooth Coat Chihuahua, or Miniature Pinscher. When mature the Long Coat has silky featherings on the ears, a single coat no more than 2 inches long on their body, furnishings of both the forelegs and rear legs, with an well arched oval foot and a feathered sabre tail. Both versions of the breed are considered Russian Toys under the American Kennel Club breed standard, and are shown and can be bred together.
We cheerfully invite you to join in on the fun and activities as we progress toward our goal of being named the official AKC Parent Club and of course full AKC recognition of the Russian Toy showing in the conformation toy group. Come see for yourself why the Russian Toy Club of America is the fastest growing and stable Russian Toy Club in the United States!
