our available dogs

Hi Blu is my name and I like to run with the big dogs-no little dogs or cats for me please.  I am two years old and find myself looking for a new place to call home.  I am a very clever girl – I know how to turn door knobs to open doors to get where I want to go, so a home that would work with my brain and keep it busy would be great.  I bet I would be great at obedience, tricks, fun agility, nose work or even doggie dancing .  I really like to play so a home with another big dog is a must.  I am currently being fostered in South Carolina.

The fine print

  ADOPTION  PROCEDURES

  1. All potential adopters are required to submit a completed application, after your application has been received you will receive an email letting you know that it has been received, if you do not receive an email, please contact us. 

  2. The adoption fee for a rescued Borzoi under seven years of age is $400 for a domestic rescue and $500 for an international rescue.  For a Borzoi seven years of age or older the adoption fee is $200. In special circumstances, the adoption fee may be waived. Payments may be made on our website or with a check.

  3. When a dog comes into rescue all of the applications are reviewed looking for the home that will be the best fit for that particular dog.  After the applications are narrowed down, the remaining adopters will be interviewed, references will be checked and a home check will be scheduled. The home that is the best fit will be presented to the board for review and the board along with input from the foster home will decide on the placement of the Borzoi.  Applicants will be notified whether they have been approved by the Board, by the placement coordinator, who will maintain records on each applicant. 

  4.  When possible, an in home visit with the Borzoi to be adopted will be made before the dog is permanently placed with the prospective new owner to ensure proper placement. 

  5. If the person or family adopting the Borzoi is a renter, a letter from the landlord stating the Borzoi is permissible in the rental for the length of the owner's stay in their residence is required. 

  6. To the greatest extent possible, the Director, appointed delegate or volunteer will maintain contact with the homes of all Borzoi placed. Efforts will be made to ensure all rescued Borzoi remain in good homes. 

  7. In the event provisions of the adoption agreement are violated by the adoptive home, the regional delegate, rescue group or NBRF Director will take all steps possible to retrieve the Borzoi from the adoptive home. Provisions have been made in the Adoption Agreement a new home/owner must sign and agree to before they can adopt a rescued Borzoi for this to happen. 

  8. All Borzoi will be altered before being placed into any permanent home.
