The Borzoi, also called the Russian Hunting Sighthound, is a sighthound hunting breed of domestic dog. They are descended from the working dogs of people who migrated from Central Asian countries to Russia prior to the 17th century. ~ Wikipedia
Like most sighthounds, borzoi are very sensitive and are one family dogs. They are friendly, but not gregarious, toward strangers. They are adequate watchdogs, and will bark. That's about all they will do, and they are not very good at actually protecting you.
These dogs are the very definition of “all bark, no bite.” They are generally trusting of people and not shy. However, Borzois sometimes act aloof towards strangers. In rare instances, Borzois can become aggressive, but they tend to be shyer on average.
The Borzoi dog breed was developed in Russia as a coursing and hunting dog. These hounds hunted in teams of three to go after rabbit, foxes, and wolves. They later became popular as a companion for royalty across continental Europe.
Borzois are laid-back family dogs who can even adapt to apartment living, despite their large size. They do not, however, fair well when left alone for long periods of time during the day. This sensitive breed needs companionship. Their beautiful coat also sheds a lot and requires some maintenance on your part. You’ll get a great couch potato buddy with a Borzoi, but you’ll still have to put in some effort to meet the breed’s needs.
