THE MISSION of the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka Club of America (RTBCA) is to create a community of Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka owners whose common goal is to preserve the integrity and develop the breed in the United States.

OBJECTIVES OF THE RTBCA include advancing the study of breeding, exhibiting, and maintenance of the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka.  The RTBCA sanctions dog events that promote interest in and sustains the process of breeding for type and function in the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka.  The RTBCA will take whatever actions necessary to protect and assure the continuation of the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka.

THE CORE VALUES OF THE RTBCA recognizes that while all dogs are wonderful, purebred dogs are more predictable and make better pets thus perpetuating the human/animal bond.  The RTBCA is committed to breeding for type and function in order to create, preserve and improve the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka as a companion dog suitable for the increasing modern urban population.

SO WHAT EXACTLY IS A RUSSIAN TSVETNAYA BOLONKA? The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is a member of the Bichon family that was almost extinct until after the Cold War. It is a small companion dog that is hypoallergenic, funny, clever beyond words and intensely loyal to its ‘family’. Most are also content to sit by the door and monitor who is allowed in or out.
