We are accepting reservation for our fall litters.   These puppies are champion bred  and 100% pure russian lines.  Each and every litter is planned to produce puppies that will meet the breed standard and with minimal white coloring.

Jassi/Willy.  Jassie is a Champion/RBIS/Multi-group winner.

Blakky/Ulan.  Blakky and Ulan are both imports.  Blakky is a Russian Champion; Ulan was shown and championed in the USA. 

These litters will produce exceptional puppies that will be ready for their new families in November.  Contact us now to reserve a baby from one of these litters. 

Enjoy the following photos of their past babies:

Our Beautiful Beaming Betty

Betty is all grown up now.  She has a super cute little face and her pigment is amazing...black button nose, coal black eyes and full eyeliner. Her coat is like silk! Adult size is about 6 lbs.   Betty was born at Treasures in 2010. 

Betty's look might seem different than other bolonka you find in the USA.  It is a look seen in Russia...follow this link to our friends in Moscow and enjoy their beautiful fawn bolonka.  Volnira in Moscow  

Our goal at treasures is to follow the russian standard; producing beautiful, healthy dogs.  We have worked hard to meet this goal...and are quite proud of the results.

Enjoy pictures of this beautiful girl.....

The Voyager litter...Janeway, Tuvok, and Neelix

On July 17, 2013 Ulan and Rea blessed us with three spectacular RUSSIAN bolonka puppies.  Two amazing boys...one coal black and the other yellow/cream and then...one even more incredible apricot girl.

The apricot coloring is exclusive to Treasures.  Earlier this year we had an entire litter of apricot and blonde with self colored noses.  This  time...in our "Voyager" litter we have the apricot coloring with BLACK pigment.   That is our little girl....Janeway.   I think her name is fitting.

We breed to the russian breed standard; our primary concern is health and temperament.  We have been blessed with the added bonus of the most unique coloring and exceptionally beautiful bolonka in the USA.

Two boys are available.  Neelix is a stunning yellow cream with black eyes/nose/lips.  Tuvok is a tiny boy...coal black with white toes.  It is possible that these boys carry the gene responsible for the coloring in this litter....only a DNA test will confirm this.

Homemade Doggy Chicken/Rice Dinner

I love cooking for my dogs.  I do not feed strictly homemade...but I supplement their kibble with it.   The dog food is people food...or perhaps I should say I cook for myself and share it with my dogs?  Either way...the food can be eaten by human and canine alike.  Today I made chicken/rice.

Doggy Chicken/Rice Meal

10 lbs chicken legs/thighs (with skin/bones)
1 lb carrots
1 stalk celery (not rib)
1 teaspoon salt

Cut the carrots/celery in half.  (3-4 inches long)
Add all ingredients to large stock pot.
Bring to boil.  Simmer for 90 min.

Remove chicken and vegetables from pot.

Make pan of rice (brown or white) using the chicken broth liquid.
It looked so good...I had to eat some!
Left over rice, ready for the freezer.

De-bone chicken.  Set aside bones/skin.   (sorry no picture)

For the dogs...I chop the chicken and carrots into bite size pieces, mix with cooked rice (60/40).  I add this to their dog kibble.  Freeze what is not eaten.  Thaw and feed, as needed.


For myself....I used my half of the chicken meat for chicken enchiladas

Bones/Skin - put those back into a pot, cover with water and boil for another hour.  Strain.  Use for boiling pasta, rice, oatmeal, or to moisten dog kibble.  Freeze unused broth (can use ice cubes trays) for later.
Straining broth from bones
Left over broth to freeze

Left overs..doggy dinner tomorrow.



So, folks..that is what I cooked today.   I hope you enjoyed.

I just want a pet....

Well, you have come to the right place.  ALL my puppies and dogs are PETS.  Shocking, isn't it?   I am being funny.  I simply want to clarify that really and truly that is all I have and that is all I place.  Pets.  Even if indeed that "pet" can be shown or is shown...first, this is a pet.  Do not let that confuse you....I do show and I want to show and I strive for dogs that are worthy of showing.

Exhibition and health testing are how a breeder validates their breeding program.  Before being granted a certificate of championship several judges evaluate your dog.  They compare him/her to the breed standard including temperament and structure.  The judge evaluates the dogs build, movement, teeth...overall conformation.  It is not just a beauty contest or sport.  I currently own six bolonka that I have shown and championed.  Roy, Rea, Jassi, Ulan, Tikhon, and Demyan.  More on their way.

 Even though you just want a pet....take into consideration why you want this breed.  Is it the look? the personality? the health? the coat?  the novelty?  When you are looking for a breed you are looking at specific traits and/or breeding practices.   That is why you are contacting a breeder isn't it?  You are looking at the "whole package".

If breed specific traits are important to you, then I welcome you to consider those breeders that put their heart and soul into breeding according to the breed standard.  Not just making puppies.  Ask: Do they health test? do they exhibit?  what can they tell you about your dogs ancestors?  what is their breeding program goal?  If a breeder tells you...oh, I just want to breed "family pets",  "I am breeding to promote the breed",  or "I care more about the dog than shows, I don't have time for shows, the shows are too far away, the breed has no health problems.....etc etc etc."  Please...ask yourself this question.  Then why did they pick THIS breed? and how are they protecting the breed specific traits? how are they validating their breeding program?
