The Borzois, also called Russian Wolfhounds are gentle, well-mannered dogs who have grace and beauty, yet they enjoy having fun and racing games. The Borzoi is a tall, aristocratic dog with a long, thin, narrow head, whose body is designed for speed. They are affectionate with their owners and tolerant of other dogs.

Puppies grow rapidly and should not be overworked until fully mature which is at one year of age. Their colors are white, golden, tan or gray with black markings, in either solid or mixed colors.


Any color acceptable.


Silky, flat, and wavy or rather curly; never woolly. The long silky coat is easy to groom. Brush regularly with a firm bristle brush, and dry shampoo when necessary. Bathing presents a problem with such a tall dog but shouldn't be required very often. Clip the hair between the toes to keep the feet comfortable and to stop them from spreading. The Borzoi is a seasonally heavy shedder.

Health Issues:

Prone to progressive retinal atrophy, gastric torsion. They are sensitive to drugs. May be a picky eater and is prone to bloat. It is best to feed the Borzoi small meals two or three times a day.
