The Borzoi Hound

The Borzoi Hound

These dogs look so exotic

They resemble Alpine wolves more than they resemble wolves at all. They are the largest of the Spitz family and resemble the brown-fronted, grey-sided form of other Spitz breeds, but they are physically distinct. Their heads are large, they have a grey mask, they have pendent ears that flop down, and their tails curl over the back." Their origins however, are not that far- we think that they originated in Tibet but they were brought to Russia by the C Staff, a war dog bred by the Russian military. I. So how come the Borkie is so rare outside of Russia? 

They make a great study for a https://thevintagepaws.com pet portrait
