Current Litters - Available Puppies
Because we breed for quality rather than quantity, we do not breed a large number of dogs. We have far more families that want an Over the Moon Puppy than we will ever have puppies available. Because of that, we have stopped listing upcoming litters or available dogs or puppies on our website or Facebook Page. Having 100 families apply for eight puppies is just an exercise in frustration for everyone concerned. Although we breed top quality show dogs, we do not require show homes for every puppy. We DO require amazing homes for every single puppy, whether they go to a show home, a working home, or a companion home. On that, we refuse to waiver. We do require knowledge and understanding and experience with guarding breeds. A Black Russian Terrier is absolutely NOT the breed for every household. They are a guard dog and they live to please and protect their family members. Although they can be soft, squishy cuddle bugs at home with their family, they are STILL a GUARD DOG. They can go from cuddling on the couch with the toddlers to stopping a threat dead in their tracks at the front door in less than the blink of an eye. This is their job. They are absolutely hard wired for this. It is innate. It is no different than a sporting breed having the instinct to flush out prey. Because of this, human management is an ABSOLUTE requirement with a Black Russian Terrier. You can not allow people who are strangers to the dog, walk into your home unannounced without a family member there to let the dog know that this particular stranger is an invited guest and not a threat. This means that from day one, if your Black Russian is loose in your home or yard, YOU, AS THE HUMAN, MUST CONTROL AND MANAGE WHO ENTERS!! ALWAYS!! It is a simple as having a hard and fast rule that everyone must text you to announce their arrival rather than ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door, so that you can give them an escort into your home or yard. If that does not seem like a fair trade off, a Black Russian Terrier is not for you. If your home is chaotic, loud and physical, with a lot of shouting and wrestling, a Black Russian Terrier is not for you. A Black Russian Terrier requires good dog sense on the part of all of their family members. It requires an understanding of the nature of a guard dog. It is not a breed for first time dog owners, no matter how many books they have read. Before you inquire about, or apply for, one of our puppies, be certain that this is the breed for you. If you have not yet met and interacted with a Black Russian Terrier and their humans, start there. Talk to them about the struggles, not just the benefits. Discuss the extensive socialization and training required. Discuss the grooming requirements of the dog. Shaving off the dog's coat is NOT an option, no matter who on Facebook says its okay. Neither is using a shock collar or e-collar to get your point across to the dog, no matter how accredited the trainer is that tells you that is a solution. Black Russian Terriers are incredibly smart and they want to please you. They are easy to train as long as you are able to communicate what it is that you desire. A Black Russian Terrier is very bonded to their humans and not only do they resent any type of harsh treatment, they remember it forever, and it destroys their bond with you. They are a serious breed and they tend to not be very forgiving. You need to make your mistakes on previous dogs, not on a Black Russian. If, after reading all of that, you think that this is, indeed, the breed for you, I welcome you to inquire about one of our puppies. For fun, go ahead and include the words "ALL IN" on your inquiry so I know that you have already read through these admonishments. A Black Russian Terrier is an amazing breed of dog and one like no other, but they do come with some stipulations.
