The Borzoi breed is typically a charming dog, but not one that is easily influenced or trained. Generally thought of as “free thinkers,” these dogs are better companions than competition dogs. They have a good reputation for being family dogs, as they play well with others, however they will not tolerate rough play. Being a sighthound, these dogs should not be left off the leash when outside, unless in an enclosed area, since they are liable to bolt after something they see.
The Borzoi is found in many colors. You will find them most often in white. Tan and gray are also common. Some will have dark colored markings on their coat and some dogs have mixed colors as well.
