|Russian Borzoi: Lois Spiers & canines established since 1987. At Russian Borzoi located in Florida for the moment, the emphasis is on breeding quality not quantity & breeding to the Borzoi Standard. My Borzoi are asthetically pleasing to the eye, typey, correct, functional & sound. DC (CH & FC) Greyhaven Eclipse of the Moon JC SC FCh V-FCh JOR ORC CGC X Russian Lady Garnet JC SC have AKC pointed children, ie: Ruby, Legacy, Madeline, River & Spirit! ! CH Russian Platina JC SC JOR ORC AKC pointed at 6 months 1 week old winning WB/BW/BO over adult competition & a Best of Breed from puppy class over adults 10/8/06. My pups are home raised as integral family members. Showing & coursing are not the only interests, however, my life revolves around the dogs. Many of my Borzoi reside in loving companion homes. Quality companions come from the same litters as show prospects! Visit the What's New! page for latest accomplishments!

|Richard was my ideal Borzoi. My first Borzoi did well going to the Top 10, winning a Hound Group 1, siring 5 AKC Champions & 1 FCH. We were both novices. When my line of Borzoi win, they win on their own merits, not because of politics. My Borzoi are sound, functional & asthetically pleasing to the eye, & typey! I breed to the standard! I pay attention to the details of the breed like breeding correct fronts, rears, toplines (paramount to correct soundness), feet (not a finer point), ears, tailset. Ears, eyes & feet have been considered immemorial as the hallmark of a well-bred Borzoi! Some of the finer points of the breed are virtually ignored by some (ears, heads)|
