A noble heritage

The Borzoi is strongly associated with the Russian aristocracy. For centuries they could not be purchased but only given as gift from the Tsar.
Browse pedigrees and photos, analyse health and pedigrees, and contribute information to the archive.
This is a remarkable tool, invaluable for all those of us who are fascinated by different breeds of dogs, for research into the past as well as for planning the future.
