Borzoi Description
  The Borzoi is an aristocratic dog that is tall with a long, thin, narrow head. Its muzzle is slightly arched and it has a long, low-hanging curved tail. The heavy-neck ruff is characteristic for the Borzoi. Its nose is black and the eyes are oblong and dark. Its ears lie and the back of the neck but will pick up partially when the dog is alert. Its back is gracefully curved and its chest is narrow, but very deep. Its coat is longish and silky and may be wavy or have large curls. It has a heavy mane at the neck.
