Borzoi

Well I can only say how I have found them, but I am on my eighth now, having owned them for several decades and having had them as house dogs interacting and living with house cats all that time. Several have been so quiet I scarely heard them bark at all their whole lives and I think most are quiet by nature. Some have wanted to chase the cats when they first met them but they learnt to accept them and some really seemed to like them from first meeting. I am still cautious about stray cats, some have been good with all but with others their cats get different treatment to strange cats.

This is why I am asking... I may have bought two 4mo pups from a shitty BYB who was flogging them off to whoever turned up. I am head over heels in love and now praying for a miracle that I find a new house ASAP so I can keep one. ????

Awwww how cute. I would suggest lots of careful socialisation, getting them out and about, and avoid any bad experiences, especially bad dog experiences. Keep it all positive or neutral and start training now with positive reinforcement so they learn to look to you for guidance. We used not to have byb and I am sad we do now, but no reason they shouldn't be fabulous. Growing up with kids is great for them too.

If you haven't found it yet there is a fb group, Borzoi in Australia. It is not very active but the gumtree ad was posted there, I assume the same pups.

My favourite fb group is Borzoi Rule, a world wide group that is mostly well behaved and social. Also if you are in Vic there is a breed club, I think it has a fb page too.

We know who bred the mum and the breeder is getting in contact with them. The litter was a disaster so hopefully they won't breed again.

I hope you find a new house in time, a Borzoi can just get into your heart and take up residence

Diva I have wanted one for as long as I can remember. And now I have two. In my house. On my bed. Lol. I am infatuated! Can't stop looking at them and running my fingers through their silky coats. I took the girl out for a walk today - it was her first time on a lead and her first outing and she was so brave! Very proud of her. Tomorrow it is the boy's turn.
