There are many legends and rumors about the Russian Black Terrier breed. They are unfairly considered uncontrollable aggressors, capable of tearing apart any person, even a defenseless child. This is absolutely not true. Giant Blackies have a stable psyche, a balanced character, a developed intellect, and the ability to adequately assess the degree of threat. Even while protecting loved ones, they will not destroy the enemy. Their main task is to turn the enemy to flight, not kill. These calm giants are infinitely loyal to the owner and to everyone who is dear to him. Like any other breed, they need proper upbringing and care.
