MODERN TYPE OF TSVETNAYA BOLONKA HAD APPEARED IN LENINGRAD (NOW SAINT PETERSBURG) IN THE 1950'S BY CROSSING FRANZUSKAYA BOLONKA (BICHON FRISE) WITH SHITZ TZU.  SOMETIMES THERE WERE ADDED THE BLOODS OF THE SMALL SIZED BEARDED DOGS OF POODLES AND LONGHAIRED TERRIER TYPE (YORKSIRE TERRIERS).  SO, ALREADY IN THE 1960'S THERE WAS FORMED THE STABLE POPULATION OF BREED STOCK, WHICH WAS NAMED "TSVETNAYA BOLONKA" (COLOURED BICHON).  THIS BREED DIFFERS FROM OTHER IN THE BICHON FAMILY BY THE COAT AND STURDY CONFORMATION.
THE HAIR IS PROFUSE AND DENSE WITH WELL DEVELOPED UNDERCOAT AND OUTER COAT FORMING LARGE CURLS OR VERY WAVY.  THERE ARE MANY DIFFERNT COLOURS, BLACK, BROWN, BLACK AND TAN, BROWN AND TAN.  SLIGHT FAULT IS SOME WHITE ON THE CHEST AND ON THE FEET.
