Borzoi are considered a giant breed ranging in size from 27" to 33" inches at the shoulders and weighing between 60 and 100 pounds as adults.
Despite their size, they are
a graceful and gentle breed, devoted to family.
In order to keep our hounds healthy, it is recommended that they be tested for genetic issues related to eyes, heart, and thyroid
before considering them as breeding stock.
It is also strongly advised to test for DM (Degenerative Myelopathy), a debilitating disease that causes gradual paralysis.
The BHWF is committed to serving the health interests of the borzoi community through ongoing tax-deductible fundraising efforts.
