Introducing Zasha!!
The Black Russian Terrier

Many years ago we acquired our first Black Russian Terrier when Ann was judging in St Petersburg Russia. Zabava was one of the most incredible dogs we have ever had the honor to have in our lives. She was a true gift. After losing her, we were quite devastated, and it took a few years for us to get past her loss. Fate sometimes knows when the right time comes and can drop those unexpected opportunities when the moment is there…A gift into our lives.  While attending the Judge’s Education Seminars in January at the Portland, Oregon shows, Ann met a “family” of BRTs with the qualities we so admired in Zabava.   Zasha was bred by Donna Renton Ried & Joshua Ried of Cerberus Kennels. She entered our lives and home just like she was born here. Thank you Donna & Josh for our wonderful new baby!
