The Russian Toy Terrier is a tiny breed that is generally inexpensive to own. However, before we talk about the expenses one will spend when raising this dog, it is worth knowing that this breed remains to be rare outside of Russia so obtaining one can be challenging. Interested individuals need to register their interest to a breeder and be on a waiting list. Purchasing a well-bred Russian Toy Terrier can cost you around £400 to £500.
Now for the expenses; new owners need to prepare the basic dog equipment so the new puppy gets comfortable. It will need a crate, bed, collar/leash, and toys, which will roughly cost £200. For food in its different stages, expect to pay around £20 to £30 per month. For veterinary care, the costs will set you back £800 a year to cover regular check-ups, vaccinations, and other preventive treatments. Lastly, an important cost is dog insurance, which will be around £20 for basic coverage. However, since costs vary depending on the company, your location and the dog’s health, do your research on the cheapest premium you can afford.
