A portfolio of pictures and information of the very early sighthound breeds and borzoi in particular
Martynov's drawing/watercolors of the dogs have been published in the "Album of dogs on the first six exhibition" 1874-1879 in Moscow) in 1879 and 1880. The Russians Tsar was Alexander II (emperor in the years 1855-1881)
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!
In this collection we can publish stories we pick in books, on FB or hear being told.
