The Borzoi are very like Greyhounds personality-wise. And yep, Boxerini they are the tall, long coated ones. They come in all colours from white to black, red, cream, grey, brindle etc but parti coloured is most commonly seen.
They are laid back and like to sleep most of the time, with a few zoomie laps of the yard every now and then. Easy to fence in, they don't jump or climb (there are exceptions to everything I guess but I haven't personally met them yet!). I brush them when I wash them, every couple of weeks.
Their devotion blows me away. My boy loves nothing more than sleeping on my feet, or under my desk if I'm working! They think they're lap dogs even when they weigh over 40kg - and are super affectionate. They give the best hugs. I just adore them.
The Salukis are more like princesses - yes even the boys! They are amazingly gentle dogs, and fiercely devoted to their humans in an almost cat-like, independent way. And agile!! They can climb or jump most things. Our girl can walk around the edge of the frame on the trampoline like a tightrope!
If you ask them, the world revolves around them. They like things their way. You just have to have their bed right, and the right food for whatever mood they're in today etc... They are good at sulking if things aren't right.
Salukis are certainly much more challenging to live with, and I wouldn't recommend them to people starting out in sighthounds. Borzoi I'd recommend to anyone but with due caution with regard to buying from the right place - like with any dog I suppose there are good and not so good breeders and I have heard of some shyness and snappiness in certain quarters - again similar to Greys, I think much of it is environmental.
