Charlie (Valentina) is up for adoption. Her
owner is not able to provide her with a proper home because
of constant business travel. Charlie is sweet and there
is “not a mean bone in her body”. She loves
people, but mainly just wants to be near, not on your lap.
She is indifferent to other dogs, not playful, mainly ignores
them, never aggressive. She is 5 years old, spayed, about
30 lbs, and lives in Dallas, TX. Charlie was diagnosed
with hyperactivity disorder when she was younger and has
been taking “doggie Prozac”. If she doesn't
have her medication, she is never still or focused, would
chase shadows on walls and fences. Her attention span would
be very short and she would cry constantly if she had to
go into a cage. It is possible that if she was getting
more attention from her owners and had a land to can run
in, she might even be weaned slowly off the medications.
Charlie has no other health issues. If you think you can
provide a good home to Charlie, please email
UPDATE (07/10/09): Charlie
joined her sister Cookie (Vasilisa) in Huntington Beacj,
CA. Thanks, Susan Davis, for taking her in and providing
her with a wonderful home!!!

be more fare. She is now 4 years old and in great health

Tasha passed away last week. Her owners were unable
to curb her aggressive tendencies and she was put to
sleep per veterinarian's recommendation. We are very
sorry to hear this news. Aggression is extremely rare
in Russian Spaniels, but genetics sometimes interferes
even with the breeding programs. Our condolences go out
to the Coffman family of WI.
Bezil lives in St. Petersburg, Russia. He is 3 years and
10 months old. 2nd place in the National Dog Show! Candidate
for breeding program in the US! Bezil is up for adoption
due to divorce in the family and resulting problems with
living space. Please let us know if you are interested.
(10/20/07): Bezil found a new family in St. Petersburg,
Bohdana Tasha's owners decided that they are too attached to her and
can not give her up.
Tasha is up for adoption. She lives in Wausau, WI. Owners will
give her away, but only to a good home. She’s in excellent condition,
with all shots, etc., and she’s now 21 months old. According to
her current owner, she is very sweet, playful, gets along
great with other dogs. But... Tasha need to go to a home
without small children as she has food agression. This
is a rare disqualifying trait in a Russian Spaniel, and
therefore Tasha is already
spayed. Also, she might do great in a hunter's
home as she has great instincts, although is not trained.
If you would like to adopt Tasha, please email
Dixie was adopted by Kevin and Wendy Delmolino of Walkersville, MD. She
is in perfect health and is bringing lots of happyness to her new owners.
No pedigree papers were provided at the time of adoption.
RSC was contacted by "A Pet for Life" rescue
organization in Pensacola, FL. They have a 2.5 year old
female spaniel that was brought to them. Previous owner
said that she is a Russian Spaniel from Moscow, but did
not bring any documentation. We are trying to determine
if this dog has pedigree papers. Here is what the rescue
people had to say about her:
" The dog (Dixie) was purchased in Moscow by a military
family. They are in the US now and for some reason they
are now unable to
keep her. She is a 2 1/2 year old spayed girl up to date
on all shots. Mostly
white with black spots. Sweet but skittish and in need
of some TLC, it appears."

The rescue people are willing to ship Dixie as long as the new owner
covers the expenses.
