    Donskoy, Don Sphynx, Russian Sphynx?!?

    Hey Lairians! Does anyone have any experience with Donskoy, aka Russian Sphynx, that can share with me? The resources for that breed are slimmer than for the Canadians!

    Saphira - A little bit Russian, a little bit Canadian (Don Sphynx and Canadian Sphynx mix)

    Hello, I'm Safira (Safi), my mum is a rubber bald Donskoy, but my dad is a Canadian sphynx. I really don't know what I am since there aren't a lot of cats like me.
