    Hi 'they are Black Russian Terriers and the most loving and cuddly dogs ever - you just have to mind the smooze when they drink. They were originally used by the Russian Army in Afganhistan as war dogs, mine are so not war dogs.

    However they are very protective and when the electrician came to fix my board as it shorted because of power cuts, Zenky went for the poor guys' 'privates' it was really embarrassing he didn't actually bite him but rather just had 'everything' in his mouth and believe me its a bone crunching mouth!!! Anyway I managed to call him off but was a sticky situation at the time. Needless to say I need to look for a new electrician.

    Yes there are two breeders one in the Cape and one in Roodepoort - all come from the original Breeder in Pretoria - so be careful of interbreeding. To buy one direct from Russia is about 30,000 euros!!!!! and you have to go there to collect[​IMG]

    Initially they just wanted to eat the chooks, but after they had smelt them and sussed out they were not a threat to anyone they are absolutely fine. In fact this morning one of my little chicks 'escaped' under the fence and Xara was barking to get my attention to tell me it was loose. She just stood by whilst we 'herded' it back into its yard. They are really great dogs and superb guard dogs.. Have a great Africa Day[​IMG]
