During the 1930s, the Russian military searched for a large terrier-type dog (like the Black Russian Terrier) to become a part of their national security force. They started the Red Star Kennel, dedicated to locating suitable breeds and combining them to produce the perfect military dog. While the Second World War delayed their efforts, the experiment, which involved crossing some 17 different breeds, eventually produced a suitable large, tough and agile dog they named the Black Russian Terrier. Red Star maintained exclusivity of the breed until 1956, when second and third generation puppies became available to private breeders. Black Russian Terriers remain uncommon outside their native Russia.
The Black Russian Terrier is a calm confident dog who is loyal to his people; yet aloof with strangers. He is highly intelligent and takes well to training; though early socialization is necessary to curb over-protectiveness. Outdoors he is a happy bouncy fellow; while indoors he is content to relax and follow his family around the house. The Black Russian Terrier is very attached to his people and does not do well if left alone.
