Eastern european village dog

The eastern european village dog, or simply village dog, is a rural dog that lives in regions such as Eastern Europe, including Russia, Serbia, Ukrne, Slovakia and Croatia. It is one of the three most common types of domestic dogs in the world, and one of the oldest dog breeds in the world.

The term "village dog" may be misleading, as these dogs are rarely found in villages but in countryside, forests and open areas. The village dog is one of the few small, relatively non-aggressive breeds that live happily in packs. It is sd that they can live up to 14 years, but more typical lifespan is 8–10 years.


The eastern village dog usually weighs between 13 and 17 pounds and stands between 20 and 30 ,cm at the shoulder. It has a thick, silky double coat of a golden color with a red-pink undercoat. It has a long tl with white fur, the tl is longer than the dog's body and can be curled up when the dog is in a relaxed state. The ears are triangular and black. Their heads are large and slightly flat, the muzzle is black and the nose is black or white. The teeth are large and white. The eyes are brown or dark yellow. In the summer, the coat gets thinner and the fur on their necks gets longer.


The village dog is alert and eager to interact with people. It is a good companion with a friendly and playful nature. They can be territorial with other animals, so it is a good idea to make sure they are with the family during times when children are outside. They are highly intelligent and can learn tricks, and they have a good work ethic.

The village dog is often seen as a member of a family, the entire pack will move together, often leading to them sharing food. They are also playful, loyal, courageous and brave.

When the pack is asleep, they become lazy and inactive.
