Tsvetnaya Bolonka is also known as Franzuskaya Bolonka in France and as Bolonka Zwetnaya  in Germany.  The name loosely translates to Colored Bolognese. Their ancestors are from the Bichon Frise family.  The look of the Tsvetnaya Bolonka is very similar to that of the Havanese, the national dog of Cuba.  Like the Havanese, the coats of the Tsvetnaya Bolonka come in a variety of colors and textures.

 At Kalapotapoo Farms,  our goal is to breed Russkaya Tsvetnaya Bolonka that are true to the breed standard.  Size, coat, health and temperament are characteristics that are key to our breeding plan.  Each puppy that is born here is greeted with love and joy, and raised in the home with the rest of our Bolonka Family.  When each puppy is placed in his forever home, the new pet parents welcome a loving, happy little Frrr-baby, ready to be a big, big part of your life for many years to come.

We would like to open our doors to you now, and let you meet our Bolonka Familykalapotapoo_for_frr-babies





Russkaya Tsvetnaya Bolonka

Tucked away amid the shady Live Oak Trees of South Georgia, the true jewels of Russia can be found frolicking in the grass and lazing in the sun.  Kalapotapoo Farms is the home of a family of Russkaya Tsvetnaya Bolonka, the most delightful discovery following the fall of the Iron Curtain.

In Post World War II Russia, life in Russia became controlled by the state.  Large government apartment buildings were constructed to house the population.  The tiny apartments were home to families.  Communal living developed to free more workers from the duties of home care, and allow both men and women to be free to work for the state.  Even in a government that controlled what books people could read and what they could say out loud, the indefatigable Russian spirit could not be diminished.  In a country where everything and everyone must contribute, and where only working dogs were common, the Russian people longed for a tiny loving pet.

Unable to import dogs from other countries, Russian dog lovers used ancestors of the Bishon Frise and other small dogs to develop a toy sized lapdog.  Characteristics that were important included low maintenance care,  good health, and people friendly.  Coat care products were rare, and the fur baby may have to be washed using lye soap.  Colored coats were developed so the dogs would not “show dirt” or tear stains found in their white Bischon ancestors.  Life in a communal setting required a small size, tiny appetite, and charming demeanor.   Bred to be highly social, these little dogs form close bonds with their family, but are open and welcoming to visitors, and never meet a stranger.  They are playful and thoroughly enjoy a good romp, but make elegant and fluffy couch potatoes for those who are less physically inclined.

 Welcome to Kalapotapoo Farms…. Come on in and meet the family.
