Welcome to the Russian Toy Club of America
Thank you for visiting the official website Russian Toy Club of America. We hope you find lots of useful information about our wonderful breed. The Russian Toy is a toy dog with an impish, yet delightful personality and can be a joy to have in almost any home.
The Russian Toy is one of the smallest breeds of dog and their intelligence and willingness to please makes them 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 Miniature Pinscher or Manchester Terrier. While the Long Coat has silky featherings on the ears, chest, backs of both the forelegs and rear legs and a well plumed tail. Both versions of the breed are considered Russian Toys under the American Kennel Club breed standard, and are shown together in breed conformation competition.
The Russian Toy Club of America is working with the American Kennel Club's Foundation Stock Services (FSS) to help promote and educate the public about the Russian Toy breed. If you'd like to know more about the history of the Russian Toy, click here. Our members are found throughout the United States and the world, and are often found at dog shows and event trials throughout the year. If you'd like to meet some Russian Toys and their people at one of these events a list of them in your area can be viewed here.
In the Summer of 2011 the Russian Toy Club of America merged with the Russian Toy Club of USA. We have joined together with the Russian Toy Club of USA, under the auspice of the Russian Toy Club of America, to continue the advancement of the AKC recognition of the Russian Toy.
