The Russian Dobruja Army was a World War I Russian field army that fought on the Romanian Front.

Field management was established in August 1916. The unit was sent to Romania to help defend Dobruja from a Bulgarian-German attack from the south.
The core of the Dobruja Army was the 47th Russian Army Corps. The mission was unsuccessful when Dobruja was lost after the Second Battle of Cobadin.
The Army was disbanded in October 1916 and became part of the Danube Army.

Commander of the Army was Andrei Zayonchkovski.
