Helping cats and dogs live their healthiest lives.
Borzoi adult black and white

Borzoi

The name Borzoi means “swift” in their native country, and when looking at this breed’s slight, athletic build, it’s easy to see why.

About the Borzoi

The Borzoi is a loyal, affectionate and reliable breed that thrives on human company, making them fantastic dogs for active families.

This dog should not be taken on lightly, however. Their large stature means they require a lot of room to spread out and their distinctive coat needs a lot of care.
