Borzoi Puppies

The Borzoi is a purebred dog breed that’s part of the hound group. This doggo goes by a few other nicknames, such as the Russian Wolfhound, Long Haired Greyhound, or the Russian Hunting Sighthound. Dating back to the middle ages, this dog breed came from Russia and was initially bred for hunting. Today, they’re affectionate, loyal, and regally dignified. If you want to learn more about Borzoi puppies, then keep reading.

Where to get Borzoi Puppies

If you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know the dog’s background, then you can go through a reputable breeder. Since this pup is purebred, the American Kennel Clb recognizes the Borzoi breed. So, you can find ethical breeders registered with the AKC Marketplace.

You’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
  • Allow the dogs and the litter to live in their home as part of the family, kennel-free (aside from crate training)
  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s safe and healthy (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption

In addition, a good breeder will also be open and honest with you. They’ll be able to answer all of your questions about anything. Also, they’ll want to meet with you in person so that you can get to know one another. Finally, they’ll allow you to meet the dogs and the puppies in person.

On the other hand, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do any of the things listed above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. Chances are, they’re a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. They don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies.

Alternatively, you can adopt and not shop. Instead, call your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Borzoi puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds available for adoption. You can get a new furry friend while providing a loving, forever home for a dog.

The Cost

The average cost of Borzoi puppies can be anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000. However, the price may increase or decrease depending on several factors. For example, the cost can be affected by the breeder’s location, the time of year, the number of puppies in the litter, the breed’s popularity, and more. 

Appearance

Borzoi puppies will grow to be large dogs, with males slightly bigger than females. For example, males can grow to be about 28 to 33 inches tall and weigh between 75 and 105 pounds. On the other hand, females can grow to be about 26 to 31 inches tall and weigh between 60 and 85 pounds.

Also, they can have a curly and silky medium coat. Their coat can come in many colors and markings.

For example, to name a few, their coat can be:

  • Black
  • Brindle
  • Cream
  • Gold
  • Red
  • Sable
  • White
  • And more!

Temperament

This doggo is a great pup to have as part of the family. For instance, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, they need plenty of early socialization and training. Otherwise, they’ll be wary of others at first.

Unfortunately, this dog is stubborn and independent. So, they won’t be easy to train. You’ll want to hire a professional dog trainer to help you out as needed unless you’re an experienced dog owner.

On the other hand, this doggo has high energy levels. So, they won’t do well living in an apartment. You’ll want to provide them with a bigger house with a fenced-in yard that they can call their own. 

Borzoi Puppies – Veterinary Needs

For the first year, be sure to bring your Borzoi puppy to the vet a few times. Then, you’ll be able to keep track of their growth and development and keep them up to date with their shots and boosters.

Then, every year after that, you can bring your doggo to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.

However, this breed is known to get some health issues, such as:

  • Gastric Torsion (Bloat)
  • Joint and Bone Problems
  • Heart Problems
  • Osteosarcoma
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cataracts
  • Von Willebrand’s Disease

This dog breed has an average lifespan of about nine to 14 years with proper care. Zorwoe…

Diet

Whether it’s high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand, or homemade dog food, you can feed this doggo anything. First, however, make sure your vet approves it. Also, the food should be appropriate for your dog’s breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

Luckily, grooming this dog breed is relatively mow-maintenance. For example, you won’t need to groom them often. Instead, you can bathe them at home as needed or bring them to a professional dog salon about once every three to six months.

However, they do shed a moderate amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week to keep the loose hairs under control. Also, be sure to brush their teeth, clean their ears, and trim their nails regularly.
