This Comprehensive Owner's Guide to the Borzoi serves as a complete introduction to beautiful, aristocratic Russian sighthound. The Borzoi, known in Russia as the Psowaya Borzoi, combines elegance and strength in a way that only a truly noble purebred dog can do. As the history chapter details, the Borzoi was once called upon to ?pin a wolf," though today he is more frequently seen as a fashionable home companion and top-winning show dog. Still able to course alongside the hunter, the Borzoi remains a powerful, courageous, and enduring hound. Written by renowned British Borzoi breeder, illustrator, and author, Dr. Desiree Scott, this volume provides well-researched information on the breed's origins in Russia, Europe, Asia, and the United States. The book continues with a chapter on characteristics, encapsulating all of the virtues of this unique sighthound, offering sound advice about which owners are best suited to the breed. The chapter devoted to the breed standard is illustrated with computer-generated graphics by the author to demonstrate correct type and structure for newcomers and experienced Borzoi fanciers alike. All owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing
