Vlad by Dezzoi Vlad by Dezzoi
Taken up at lake pahranagat, 100 miles North of Las Vegas, Nevada.

If you look real close you'll see a muskrat going unnoticed behind Vladimir in the water. hehe

"Vlad" is short of "Vladislav". Not of Vladimir!

This takes the cake for most ignorant comment ever.
Vladimir is my dog's full name. That is what I named him. Vlad is a shorter way of saying it. :|

I just can't get over how beautiful Vlad is. I can't believe he has spots on only one side, I have never seen that on a dog before much less a borzoi, extremely unique! I wish I had a borzoi, I love athletic dogs (I am an athlete myself and a competetive swimmer) especially tall ones, maybe once I move out I'll eventually get one. ^^ Beautiful animals they are.

That's what I like about borzoi: They are really really big and tall but are extremely athletic! It's such a great mixture. :)
Vlad's spots are one of the many things that drew me to him out of all the puppies of the litter. I thought it was so unique and the he had the right temperament I was looking for too. And to top it all off, he has a spot right between the grey patches atop his head - I've always wanted those markings (and the blue coloration on white - which the whole litter was) on a borzoi. I don't know why... It was a total epic win. :)

That's so cool! He sounds like such a cool dog, borzoi are a favorite breed of mine, there's just something about them that I find interesting, they're unlike any breed I've come across. Plus, the fact that they're athletic means that you can spend a lot more time running with them and going on walks and hikes. I love walking my dog, its fun to spend time with her just the two of us. ^^

the borzoi is a dog that requires plenty of exercise, right? I say this from the shape of your body, I have never seen this kind of dog before until I saw pictures of your dog

Everyting dogs needs plenty of exercise, including the small ones. The borzoi will do good with a daily walk of 30mins - 45 mins, but will do even BETTER if you have anywhere were he/she can just run off leash. They don't have huge endurance like a saluki, but will benefit from off leash runs immensely, preferably daily ones if you can. They live to run and they don't even have to be chasing anything to do so. My boy will just run for the hell of it just because he loves it. It's just embedded deep into his genes, blood, and bones.

I take my boy out into the desert far away from any roads and cars at least 4 times a week to just let him run off leash after jack rabbits and what not and when it's a really cold day, we hike for about 3-4 hours and during that time, he's ran after countless rabbits.

They can live with daily walks and a one or two off leash runs a week, but they are also the kind of dogs where they are great athletic partners for athletic humans. Running along the bike is also a good way to drain their energy if you aren't an athletic person yourself. :)

Not necessarily. Vladimir has bolted throw thick rotten mud and threw wide rivers after prey. He does not fear getting dirty or wet, especially when he's in hunting mode. lol! He actually noticed the muskrat as well, but since there was a ranger on duty just a few hundred feet away, he had to stay on the leash. :( But, he would have been right in that water after it if I let him.

A lot of borzoi actually enjoy getting dirty. My boy doesn't even have to be chasing anything to make a straight line to any cesspool out there.

Check out some videos of borzoi loving dirt or swimming! They look so funny when they're caked in mud. lol x3

And most of my friend's borzoi, as well as mine, enjoy a good swim. :)

But it's ironic really...I had a lab growing up (wasn't my choice - he was the family dog) and he FEARED water of any kind. He wouldn't even swim with us in our pool.

I guess a lot of people do that these days. lol I like my dogs to be tough and rugged.
Vlad comes from a breeder who came from Russia with her two dogs (Vlad's parents). He's come from a long line of hunters in Russia, so he's not scared to get his feet dirty.

Thanks for the link as well. I'll look more into once I'm home.

I don't know why...but this picture makes me giggle nearly every time i see it...mostly because of Vlad.

Beautiful dog, but for some reason he is just hilarious.
