|Black Russian (Mixed Color)|
just had to share because we had never heard or even seen this breed before. This is a Black Russian Terrier (although the AKC do not class it as a terrier - it is in the Working Dog Group as of 2004) It's heritage is Rottweilers, Airedales, Newfoundlands and Russian Ovcharka (another breed we hadn't heard of!) Yikes - can you imagine if this crawled onto your lap wanting or cuddle or even worse it wanted to sleep on your bed !!!!
Now the normal Black Russian is indeed all black and weighs between 100 and 150 pounds and up to 30" tall but as you can see it is VERY common for them to get even bigger !!! They live between 12-14 years which is really good for a big dog breed and they are excellent guard dogs. GULP !!!!! can you imagine having that jump on you, knock you down and be standing over you and barking in your face!
And while we are talking of big dogs - we want to say how sad we were to read that the BIG Dog with an even BIGGER heart - Miss Honey - the Great Dane - left us on this world and headed over the Rainbow Bridge. Run free Honey - we know you have so many wonderful friends there waiting for you.

I have seen a really big dog in my hood and I am wondering if it could be this breed. Big dogs like to try and rain on me.
Thanks for being a friend
