General Information On Borzois

Borzois essentially complete their rapid growth period by 9 to 12 months and it is vitally important that the breeder´s diet sheet is strictly followed to ensure the correct growth and formation of bones and limbs. This breed can become finicky eaters therefore it is essential they are not spoiled with treats and table scraps. Although they are big dogs, they are lightweight and therefore are not big eaters.

These tall and elegant sight hounds are pictures of grace and aristocracy. They carry their long, narrow heads with pride. Their coats are silky and of medium length with heavy feathering on the legs, undercarriages and tails. They have a long reach and a springy stride being driven from powerful hocks, giving them an apparently effortless action. Borzois are dogs of beauty and give every suggestion of power, courage and speed.

Borzois are the best known Russian dogs and have been used there for coursing wolves since the early 17th century. A Russian duke imported several sighthounds from Arabia but they could not survive Russia´s harsh winters. Second time around he crossed the hounds with native coated breeds, possibly Tartar coursing hounds or long-legged shepherd dogs. Because of their gentle temperaments and exotic appearances, they made ideal gifts from the Czars to the crowned heads of Europe and in 1903, Joseph Thomas went to Russia to find the ideal Borzoi. He came to the kennels of Artem Balderoff at Woronza and of His Royal Highness, the Grand Duke Nicholas at Tula. The dogs that Joseph Thomas imported were the basis of breeding programmes on both sides of the Atlantic. After the Russian Revolution in 1917, Borzois were associated with the ruling class and many kennels of beautiful dogs were destroyed and the breed only survived thanks to the original gifts to the western world.

Borzois are difficult to train. They are stubborn and not really prone to obedience so it is essential that training is started at a young age. Consistency and patience will work wonders!

The head should be long and lean with bones and principal veins easily seen. The occiput is very pronounced. The jaws are long, deep and powerful with a complete scissor bite. The eyes are almond-shaped and dark with an alert and intelligent expression. The ears are small and pointed. The neck should be slightly arched, reasonably long and well-muscled. The back should be rather bony and muscular, rising in a graceful curve with a well-balanced fallaway. The curve is more pronounced in dogs than bitches. The front legs should be straight and clean; the hind legs long and muscular with a well developed second thigh. The front feet are oval with the toes close together, well-arched with thick pads; the hindfeet are longer and less arched. The tail is long, low set, well-feathered and can be sickle- or sabre-shaped. It should not be carried over the back when the dog is in action. Any colour is allowed in the show ring.
