After years of research to find the breed of dog that would fit the bill for us we settled on the Black Russian Terrier. And so we then set out to find the perfect Black Russian Terrier puppy! We were lucky in December of 2004 to be able to bring Iskra Fantasy S Bosfora Vostochnogo ("Tasha") home. Imported all the way from from Vladivostok, Siberia Tasha instantly stole our hearts.

Although a beautiful representative of the breed, Tasha was diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia when we screened her at age two. Therefore, she was spayed. However, this bold, courageous, intelligent girl still had a rich career as a therapy dog. Tasha proved she was a true working dog by passing her Canine Good Citizen Test at six months of age and her Therapy Dog International test at the minimum age allowed - one year. She also passed the American Temperament Test Society’s temperament test and had the TT title. She became a regular and welcome visitor at several area nursing homes. She always enjoyed training and pleasing people. We were lucky to have her for 14 wonderful years. She is very missed.
