Olga Zilberman collect pictures and other information about borzoi
I am publishing these articles in The Borzoi Encyclopedia to encourage better understanding of the function of the Borzoi and its development as a breed. They are for all to enjoy reading but no part of my contributions to The Borzoi Encyclopedia may be copied, downloaded, printed or used in any way without my prior express written consent.
Here we show borzoi, people and other information from all times. We like to have informtion on country, place, time and also names if available!
In addition to the large hunts with names known even today, there where at end of the 19th century in Russia many ordinary hunters-breeders we don't know much about! When information occurs it will be posted here!
