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.
The Borzoi is a sweet, intelligent dog, quite affectionate with people they know well. They are proud and self aware dogs that are extremely loyal to their family. This breed can be trained in obedience, but since they are hounds, are more free-thinking, and less willing to please humans than some breeds.
Borzoi dogs are smart, very intelligent, and capable learners. However the training of this breed has to be based upon mutual respect. Borzoi are often quite cat-like, often keeping themselves quite clean. This breed is quiet, rarely barking. They cannot be trusted off leash, unless in a securely fenced area.
They are good with other dogs, but should be supervised with small non-canine pets such as cats and rabbits. Spending time outdoors with small animals is not advised. They should be socialized very well with cats and other pets at as young an age as possible, but remember the Borzoi will always be a hunter that may race after a fleeing animal.
The Borzoi is a noble dog that gets along fairly well with children, but it is not ideally suited for being a child’s companion as it does not take well to rough-housing play, and prize their rest. During the growing stage, these dogs need a highly nutritional diet.
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.
Due to being deep chested this breed is more prone than others to bloat. It is best to feed the Borzoi small meals two or three times a day. Avoid exercise after meals. To minimize the risk of your Borzoi developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a Borzoi puppy from a reputable breeder.
Apartment is okay if the Borzoi is provided with daily exercise. They are relatively inactive indoors and are so peaceful it might escape notice, but outside they need plenty of space to walk and run – so it will do best with at least an average-sized yard. In the city he should only be let off the lead in a safe, enclosed space. Borzoi should not be left alone in a yard as he can easily jump a six-foot fence.
