Once kept in great numbers by the Tsar and the noblemen of Russia, the Psowaya Borzoi, as today's Borzoi is properly known, commands attention for its regal beauty, its dignified elegance and its considerable strength, as if recalling its aristocratic past. Although no longer called upon to `pin a wolf' or run down large game, the Borzoi remains a courageous, powerful coursing hound capable of great endurance and speed. As a family dog, the Borzoi's principal role in today's world, the breed is a sensitive, sweet comrade that thrives on being the centre of its owners' attention, yet remains reserved with strangers.
