Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The hortaya borzaya or simply hortaya (Russian: "shorthaired sight hound," pronounced [xort j borz j ][dubious - discuss][vowels are wrong, missing stress]) is an old Asian sight hound breed originating in the former USSR. It is a dog of large size, of lean but at the same time robust build, of considerably elongated proportions. In its everyday life the hortaya is quiet and balanced. It has a piercing sight, capable of seeing a moving object at a very far distance. In spite of its calm temperament the dog has a very active reaction to running game. Hortaya are excellent, enduring hunting dogs endowed with a good, basic obedience and completely lacking aggression towards humans.show more
