>>4452876You're telling me this thing kills wolves and pitbulls?
>>4452884Which is the real one? I'm going insane, aaaaahh..
>>4453362will he recover?
>>4452876hello friends, death to communists, long(get it?) live borzoi.
>>4453374sadly this is a rare degenerative disease with a 0% recovery rate. as long as he’s kept in the fridge and microwaved weekly he may be able to live out the last few years of his life in relative comfort.
>>4452876So this breed gained popularity because of the miss piggy meme. Good thing or bad thing?
>>4452879this looks so much like my old borzoi i had to go out to my backyard and check to make sure this wasn't a picture of my actual dog. all borzois are exactly the same
How do borzois fare with other dogs?
>>4455345Perfectly fine with normal sized dogs. Toy breeds are in mortal danger of being mistaken for a rabbit.
>>4455397Does that mean I should be careful when walking one? I can't tell how serious you're being.
>>4453362y-you wouldn't take a bite of that pizza slice, right /an/on?
>>4455444Why would I when there's a tasty borzoi to eat instead
made for cranking their hogs!
How the fuck does this dog fight pit bulls?

>>4457600I never noticed how long their uh, digits? fingers??they have long paws ok, it's weird lookingNot bad though, just weird
>>4457771Everything about them is long.Except their lifespan
>>4458031Don't they love around 10 years or so?I mean sure that's not long for dogs, but still plenty of time to give them a good life.
>>4458092They live for about 10 years, they love forever.
>one of the dumbest dog-breedskek

>>4455247Dogs/wolves doing shit like this makes me understand why humans thought monsters were real when it was probably some silly hound
>>4458441Looks more like a circle, not a triangle, but okay.
/r/ing gifs and webms of borzois:1. Sniffing their snooty snotters2. Getting their muzzles grabbed and snoots booped
>>4458441why do borzois always look like they're deeply disappointed in humanity
>>4458270That's why they're cool
>>4452900*epic meme dog
>>4458447Well, by connecting the brownest spots of its coat with the eye of its head, we can achieve a triangle. I think the Borzoi is doing this for a reason.You see, within a circle such as the shape made by this borzoi, we can observe a new symbol of a triangle surrounded by a circle. This symbol is most commonly used by the organization Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization founded to help recovering alcoholics. It had two co-founders. The country ranking #2 with the highest population of alcoholics is Russia. Borzois come from… Russia. Therefore, this Borzoi’s posture of laying down is simply him showing that in his sleep, he is dreaming about his motherland. It’s all connected, dude.
>>4454528How the hell did one of these lanky meme dogs manage to clobber a pitbull?
>>4459042They have more than twice the bite strength and were bred to kill wolves. Pretty sure someone already asked this.
>>4458763SQUARING THE CIRCLE. THE ZOI IS SQUARING THE CIRCLE.
>>4459042read up on Archimedes and his leverthose long muzzles aren't just for looking silly
I will get a borzer if it's the last thing I do
>>4459289high fashion ass dog
>>4453287Yep. A shitbull literally stands no chance against a borzoi. Wolves were historically hunted by at least a couple borzoi however.I remember reading a story on social media about a guy walking his borzoi with his 2 little daughters, pitbull comes out of the corner ready to maul, guy lets dog go to protect daughters and is sure that his dog will die. The borzoi then proceeds to mercilessly devastate the feral pitbull with no hesitation.

How come some borzers have really curly fur and others are straight and fluffyIs it just how they're groomed, or is there a genetic component, what's going on

Are borzers related to greyhounds at all? Why do all sighthounds share that weird lanky frame and nervous expression

>>4480832these things actually don't look real
>>4453287There is some russian or kazakh videos of wolf hunting with borzoi
>>4500902>>4503719For me it's the side eyes.
I was good friends with a retired oncologist who owned four of these, those were the only borzoi I've ever seen IRL. About 7 years ago I went out for a late-night walk with him and one of the dogs in a park within the city limits of Calgary. We started hearing coyotes and the dog took off. It was gone for a while, probably close to an hour, and although I never saw or heard anything, when it came back it was covered in blood. The doctor said that he would occasionally take his dogs coyote-hunting, and what would happen is the alpha of the coyote pack would challenge the borzoi and the borzoi would immediately rip its throat out. The rest of the pack would then scatter, and the borzoi would chase down and kill a few more.A little while after this two of his borzoi died from eating from an open garbage can. They are dumb dogs, but they look very cool given how tall and thin they are; they're like alien, sci-fi dogs. It's also nice that they never bark, although they do whine and howl. Oh, and one last story: they didn't like being in the car and would whine incessantly while in it, and the only way that he could get them to stop was by playing Indian music on the radio. We used to drive around town in an old van with a couple borzoi in the back, blaring Indian music. Fun times. I tried offing myself last week but failed, one of my favourite things in life is pulling up a long-buried memory. These images caused me to think of those nearly-lost memories, thanks for making this thread.

Horror in liminal spaces
>>4507593Pretty sure there's a bloodborne boss that looks like a Borzoi.
>>4512777I was surprised to find out that one of the reasons why it is highly discouraged to get an anteater is because they are incredibly energetic. They could have fooled me in every video I've ever seen of them.

>>4487063Bumping this. its looking straight at the camera with dark lighting
>>4513078When the smell hits.
>>4454528I keep seeing this even though I'm certain it's horseshit. I love the fuckers but there's no chance a borzoi could singlehandedly take down a pit bull. It's not like they were bred to take down wolves by themselves - those snouts aren't built to maul. Realistically it would stand no chance against one of those pieces of shit because that thing is actually designed to straight up kill other dogs.
>>4512150not a borzoi
Bros I'm in Miami and the nearest borzoi breeder has been reluctant to sell me a borzoi. I think I'm going to have to go to South Carolina to get one but that's going to be such an expense.
>>4517389>she must a crawled under there for warmth
humans selectively breeding to purposefully select for frailty and retardedness will never not make my blood boil
>>4522041They’re physically powerful and actually pretty intelligent. Just not slavish, overly trusting attention whores. If you try to fade out the reward the borzoi will deem you a liar. If you introduce punishment the borzoi will avoid you until they die. They are emotionally sensitive and intelligent animals.
>>4458590I completely understand them
>>4522041i understand but what does that have to do with borzoi?
>>4459042Borzoi's are huge, anon, they were literally bred for wolf hunting, its long jaw likely just snapped around pits neck
>>4522118i think he's trying to communicate his disgust at the weakness of flesh and wants to exist as a perfect entity of length
>>4502240Kek>SON LEMME DO IET TO YOUUUU
>>4459042Pitbulls are 20kg manlets designed entirely to fight other 20kg manlets in a way that looks entertaining and "vicious" but is actually incredibly inefficient.In essence they're still only terriers that got some "bull" injected into them when it became too expensive to keep the squashed mastiff that was the "original" bulldog due to the illegalisation of bull baiting (the actual genealogy is a little more complex but that's gist of it). They're also a fairly weak biting dog believe or not (despite "dogmen" creaming themselves about how "hard" their dog's "mouth" is)They should automatically be assumed dog aggressive but they're not actually particularly good at being le worlds most dangerous killing machine. It's like wondering how a fully grown adult man could beat the shit out of Conor McGregor or something, sure he's good at punching other manlets, he might beat a few normal people because he's a hair trigger retard looking for fights, but a grown man would fold him if he landed a punch on him. Never mind the fact that Borzois ARE designed to be genuine animal genociders, it'd be like some 50kg black hoodrat attacking a (insert your special forces kill squad of your choice) and just getting instantly strangled to death.
>>4525444The average borzoi tries to escape fights unless they are extremely pissed. The average pitbull always wants to fight and everything makes them want to kill.
>>4525444Did this nigga really said that the average man would fold McGregor lolEvery single ufc fighter could destroy the average man in a few seconds what the fuck are you talking about
>>4518373The snouts aren't built to maul, they're built to have maximum force. They're long for leverage. Meanwhile pitbulls have pitiful bite strength, but huge neck muscles so they can stay latched on and rip meat chunks. The borzoi just has to bite the shitbull's neck and it's done.
>>4525777This is just starting to sound like some unironic DEX vs STR crap. They do not directly kill large prey, they hold them in place, and even then they usually rely on superior numbers to effectively do so. If Ivan suddenly arrived from the nineteenth century to knife the pit while the borzoi had it pinned, it would be almost somewhat believable, but without outside help, it is screwed.>pitbulls have pitiful bite strengthYou gotta be shitting me.
>>4525355this translation completely misses a "boruzoi" pun that's in the japanese
>>4459093Werent pitbulls bred to kill bears?
>>4527082No? They were bred to kill stray dogs and other pitbulls...
>>4525764mcgregors own leg folded him

>>4463436she's very modest i want to hold her hand and treat her right
>>4452884Is your Borzoi asian?
>>4454528That does it, as sonn as I get my own place I'm gonna get myself one of these long motherfuckers
>>4480832Me on the right
>>4525820It's true that if you were to put a borzoi in a pit fight against a pittie with both animals ready and pumped up for the deathmatch, it would be nothing short of a miracle for the long boy to win.However, they are plenty capable of killing large prey by themselves, thanks to their speed, long jaws and the specific training they historically received. They were trained to dash forward and go for the neck. In case of smaller animals like hares or foxes, this results in a tiger-style neck crush.And with larger animals like wolves - strangulation. They contstrict (or even rupture) major blood vessels of the animal, making it go unconscious and eventually die, they don't just "hold them in place".Then there is another factor. Usually dogs (even pitties) don't consider other dogs as prey, when they interact there is a normal predator-predator escalation of conflict that happens all the time (between wolves from different packs, bears, etc.) in nature. Visual and auditory demonstrations (look how big and loud I am, you better run away!) and only then - an actual fight, with the goal being to drive the other predator away, and only if that doesn't work will there be a fight to the death. This is true even for pitbulls, although their own breeding and training was all about shortentning the first phases of the conflict and going straight to mauling. On the other hand, borzoi are one of those breeds that DO see other canines as prey, because they were bred and trained to. So when their hunting instinct kicks in, they skip the entire predator-predator thing, and do what they do best - go for the neck.And this is considered kind of a dick move in animal kingdom, usually reserved for predator-prey interaction.
>>45306842/2So, the situation in the pic does sound plausible, if the torn part the owner is talking about is the neck.The pittie was distracted by there being at least 4 targets (3 people and the borz) and didn't expect to be treated like prey.For it, the situation changed from "bork bork, this is my territory, run away you fucks or I'll maul you" to "What the fuck I'm being killed, help help help" in a couple of seconds.And it seems, a major blood vessel was damaged in the attack, resulting in it dying afterwards.
>>4518373yeah, it's definitely BS. I keep seeing posts like this>>4530684and the 'my borzoi killed a pitbull' post, but that one image is the ONLY record of any such fight. If borzois were about taking down PBs, there would be videos.Here's how you know it's bullshit. If borzois could reliably kill PBs, tons of people would have them now, just for that reason. It would kill the PB popularity because suddenly borzois would be the new 'tough guy' dog.Don't get me wrong, I think borzois are super cool and I FUCKING HATE pitbulls, but facts are facts.
>>4530684Literally every prey driven dog will hunt foxesWolves kill and eat coyotesHumans will kill other humans even if they're the same colorWhat are you smoking
>>4531109Nobody says anything about >borzois could reliably kill PBsthe fact that there is literally one(1) such story circulating on the internet by itself proves that they can't. I even start my post saying that in a straight up fight >it would be nothing short of a miracle for the long boy to win>>4531113>Literally every prey driven dog will hunt foxesAnd?>Wolves kill and eat coyotesAnd?>Humans will kill other humans even if they're the same colorAnd?You haven't said anything that would contradict my own words. Stop smoking whatever you are smoking, and go hunt humans of the same color, I guess.
Borzoi are extremely demanding on freedom of movement. Both in life and fights. If you are not living on farm/in village - owning borzoi is just animal torture. When it comes to fights , for examle your favorite bulls - borzoi would circle around the dog until they see a chance to bite the neck. They simply outspeed bull by heavy margin. So, in some small close arena - borzoi would die, but in the open - bull have no chance. Anyway, if you are living in the city/town - dont even think about getting borzoi. Dont torture the animal.
>>4527082>>4527100No, they were bred to be nanny dogs
>>4534834Are you in singapore or something? Dogs leave the house with you. They can go outside with you every time you leave the house. You can go to a park or a field, no problem. The house is just a den for sleeping and lounging around. You can have a dog anywere there is a public space except for countries that follow satanic religions and therefore have laws against dogs or an environment that is equally hostile to both human and canine happiness.
I would like to live with a Borzoi for a week or so in order to get a more thorough understanding of their personality. How do I do that? Can you rent a dog?
>>4535090I know this is bait but...
>>4452876I like them but I live in the city and am away from my apartment for a long while so I don't want to inflict that on a dog.
>>4459410The fulcrum of the 'lever' that is the jaw is right at the one end though - where the mandible meets the skull - so the leverage gets worse and worse the longer the snout is.
>>4479384>got any games on your phone?

always wanted to get a Borzoi, what is your advice Borzoi-bros?also how much do they usually cost?
