A graceful, elegant sighthound, the Borzoi was bred hundreds of years ago in Tsarist Russia. With his extreme speed, agility and courage, he excelled as a hunter of wolves, foxes and hares. An affectionate family dog, the Borzoi needs daily exercise. His lustrous coat requires regular brushing and bathing.
