Overview
The Borzoi was originally named the Russian Wolfhound. They are a sight hound that relies on their agility and speed. They were highly prized and revered by nobles and aristocracy, but could not be purchased. They could only be given as gifts from the Czar.
Character
The Borzoi is a tall and aristocratic breed. They are considered to be the embodiment of elegance and grace. They exude noble tranquility, reticence, and confidence. They are a docile and devoted companion. The Borzoi displays exceptional talents in hunting, sighting, and lure coursing.

Does your Borzoi bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Borzoi is proud, sweet, and alert. They are extremely loyal to their family, and affectionate to people well known to them. They are aloof to strangers. They are quiet, well behaved, and seldom bark. For this reason they are not good watchdogs. They are not recommended for homes with small children, cats, or other small pets. They do well with other medium or large sized dogs they have been raised with. They are also terrific companions for older considerate children. The Borzoi is very slow to mature. They are not well suited for a two career family as they suffer depression and separation anxiety if left alone for extended periods of time. They are extremely sensitive, intelligent, and free thinking.
Care
The Borzoi is relatively easy to groom. They need to be brushed regularly with a firm bristle brush and dry shampooed when needed. It is important to keep the hair on the pads trimmed to prevent splaying. Borzois are generally a healthy breed however they are prone to progressive retinal atrophy. They also have an extremely low tolerance to anesthetic and have a tendency to bloat.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Borzoi has a unique and wonderfully patterned coat. It is silky and of moderate length with a thick plush under that fits closely to the body. They have a profuse neck mane, longer thick coat on the tail and back of hind legs. The coat is dirt shedding and resistant to matting, and may be flat, wavy, or curly. The Borzoi comes in a variety of colors such as white, golden, and tan or gray with black markings. These colors may be mixed or solid. They are heavy shedders.
Training
The Borzoi is considered a giant breed and is not a breed that will fit into every household. As sight-hounds they require constant attention and restraint. They require basic obedience and socialization. They excel in agility. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods. They are relatively easy to housetrain since they prefer to be clean. The Borzoi requires calm, patient, and consistent guidance with mutual respect. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Borzoi puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Borzoi requires an inordinate amount of exercise. They make excellent jogging and walking companions provided they are very securely leashed. They are relatively inactive indoors but will become bored and destructive if left alone for extended periods of time. They need plenty of space to run in a large securely fenced yard. They are able to adapt to apartment dwelling provided they are sufficiently exercised. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Do Borzois do good with rodents and other animals?

The Borzoi is a sight hound, and being in the hound breed; they have a high prey drive. So to be blunt, no, the Borzoi breed does not do well with small pets. All small pets such as rabbits, rodents, ect. should be kept in safe cages. A Borzoi can live with a cat if the dog is socialized to cats as a puppy, but they will chase anything that runs.

How well do you think my Borzoi would do on a cross-country cycling trip? I've trained her since she was a puppy and she loves trotting along with me when I cycle around town, and she tolerates the dog-cart when she has to. But this would be up to fifty miles a day and camping out. I just know she would be miserable if I left her behind though, my brother isn't an exercise junkie like I am.

It all depends on how far you usually take your Borzoi out for walks each day. If it's not at least 3/4 of that I would say don't risk it, better to have her a little disappointed with you for a bit rather than unhealthy

Take your Borzoi to the vet as he probably has worms or a different type of parasite.

Sighthounds can be contrary when it comes to eating, especially under stresses like traveling they will refuse their kibble. It's no need to panic as it can be frustrating until you find a method that works.

1) Consult a vet to clear health & vitality
2) Find a high-quality dry food that your dog is at least somewhat interested in eating. Throughout adolescence, these preferences can change, keep it interesting but always take care when switching food.
3) The feeding area should be a quiet area without the bustle of kids & other animals.
4) Establish a consistent daily routine of feeding times.
5) Keep an eye on how much they're eating each day and their weight gain/loss.

My male borzoi all tended to teeter right on the border of underweight, in that first year they do so much growing, but you won't see them fill out until later in life, around year 2. As long as the pup is healthy, active, and not emaciated, you're in the clear

11 - 12 years is the average life expectancy of a Borzoi.

10-12 years but many Borzoi suffer from heart conditions, especially the athletes and can pass away much sooner.
