Borzois are an exceptionally tall hound and they are very elegant to observe, with a narrow head and long muzzle. Their ears are small and usually swept back; Borzois have beautiful coats with a slightly curved tail. Colours include white, golden or tan and grey. The colours are either solid or they can be mixed.
The Borzoi is a gentle giant, very calm and affectionate. They are a good natured breed of dog. They can be aloof with strangers but also very nervous so they would probably turn and run from an intruder. They are very stubborn and training can prove to be problematic, they do not cope with harsh words so a non-coercive style of dog training is much preferred.
