Comments: Very informative I enjoyed your site very much. I have had my Borzoi 2 years and 6 months. One of the sweetest breeds I have ever owned. He is quite shy no matter how I try to have him interact with people other than immediate family but he seems to just want to hide behind me. Although usually if people let him come to he is better and may go up to them. I got him at 11 weeks and prop ably wants socialized enough. Either way he is a sweet boy and I've just never had a sweeter dog.
Admin reply: Glad you found the site interesting.
Borzois are renowned for their very sweet temperaments. Some are more reserved with strangers than others, but as you have found it's always best to let them make the initial approach to someone new.

Comments: I enjoyed your site, very informative for those who are not au fait with breed. I have had in the past Barzoi's, Reyas Springbank, de Morton Hall,and Y'Mauville. I am giving very careful thought about a puppy next spring, so I have been looking at various sites, rather alarmed to see very cheap puppies offered on a Welsh site. Thank you very much loved looking at your hounds.
Admin reply: Glad you enjoyed the site Carole and pleased to hear you are thinking of getting another Borzoi.
You are very wise to be wary of cheap puppies offered online, from Wales or anywhere else. For some reason I am unable to fathom, this breed attracts a lot of puppy farmers, despite the fact that there is not a great demand for them as pets. Only consider a puppy from a breeder recommended by the Borzoi Club or Northern Borzoi Association.

Comments: I love to look at your progress and pictures of all your beautiful Borzoi. Having had the pleasure of owning one once, makes this site all the more interesting. Lettie will always be a special little girl to us even though she has been gone a long time. The new puppies were beautiful so sad to lose one sweetie, no doubt all the others will excel in their new homes. A pleasure to meet you Jean at last.
Admin reply: Thanks Dorne, it was great to meet you too.
In case anyone is wondering, Lettie was Ryazan Roulette, born in 1985, sister to Rhett. There were only the two pups in the litter.
