well smashed and slammed proves that short/small is terrible so Elongated and Extended is the factually superior option.

>snout length is linked to retinal ganglion distribution
>vision of dogs with shorter snouts is focused more on a single point, not unlike a human's
>vision of dogs with longer snouts is focused more broadly in a horizontal streak
From here on it's all my own conjecture but it seems plausible enough to me:
>this horizontal streak is beneficial in coursing because it makes it easier to not lose track of prey when it makes a turn
>sighthounds selectively bred for the purpose consequenly developed a more pronounced streak
>this had the side effect of giving them longer snouts

To play with wolves, you mean. It's 21st century after all, time to get progressive.

they are genuinely dumb, not "won't pay attention when i want them to listen to my arbitrary commands but suddenly knows them all before dinner" dumb, but "difficulty with living" dumb.

You are an unironic absolute retard.
Dogs that are on a retard level like you are absolutely useless for hunting purposes.
Borzois are at worst on average dog level and they are working dogs, not show faggots.
>>
>>4312672
borzoi are not real hunting dogs. they just run after stuff. it takes so little brainpower that even a lion can do it. and lions have less brain to them than housecats, accounting for brain to body mass ratio.

a real hunting dog is a golden retriever.
