The Borzoi. Also known as the Russian Wolfhound this sighthound breed was brought to Russia from central Asian countries & is a quiet, but athletic & independent dog. They do not have strong territorial drives & bark rarely, but are extremely smart and require patient, experienced handling. They are gentle & highly sensitive dogs with a natural respect for humans, & as adults they are decorative couch potatoes with remarkably gracious house manners.

Borzoi - The Borzoi once went by the name Russian Wolfhound and was prized by Russian nobility. The breed descends from the ancient Persian Greyhound (a Saluki ancestor) crossed with native Russian herdsmen's dogs.
