They came to my life 5 years ago. I own Italian greyhound family-type (small kennel) and my best friend decided to take Borzoi puppy - she took one and now has 5 dogs of this breed. As she is almost my sister and I visit her each day - she and her dogs are part of our family and I even show them at the dog-shows in order to help her. What I may say...amazing breed, breed most like a cat but don't forget that it is huge dog and hunting breed. Borzoi is a sighthound breed and they may forget easily about you when they meet rabbit in the field during the walk. They are not easy to groom if to compare with the italian greyhound - we wash them each week and it takes time to wash them as well as we use expensive shampoo etc for them as our dogs are show-quality dogs and must have really good hair. They deal good with our small Italian greyhounds and our cat BUT they hate all other small dogs/cats and they do may hurt any small unknown animal that enters their are. No problems with feeding and health except nail/fingers traumas that they may get in the field when they see rabbit and may run away for some time to try to catch it. They are calm and not seen at all - sleep most of the day :) I would recommend this breed for you if you live outside the city and may give your dog the opportunity to enjoy walks in the fields without the lead.
