Introducing the boston pups

Solo

Hi I am Solo, I am 16 months old and I am another long legged beauty like my sister Sonata.  We are awesome together, but we do revert to our heritage and do the borzoi hunting thing so it is best if we split up.  I like everyone else,  love people, love toys, love to be brushed, love to play, love snuggles don't like cats and am unsure about small dogs, but am finding out about those - stay tuned.  I currently live in Pennsylvania.  I will be available for adoption as soon as I am spayed

FOSTER SUCCESS

Gigi

Hi my name is Gigi, I am 9 months old and I am as cute as can be.  I am a super snuggler, when my foster mom lays down I like to rest my head on her butt .  I like people, and to run and play with toys, I am very much a puppy still.  My foster family is still learning about me, but like my brothers and sisters I am used to being with other dogs so I would like a 4 legged friend to play with in my new home as well as two legged friends to love.  I am not cat or small dog safe, that is a fact.  I do need a large yard with at least a 5 foot fence though so that I can get a good run in, but not escape.  I am being fostered in Illinois

Ruska

Hi my name is Ruska, I am 16 months old - I am not the oldest, but I am the boss - hey someone had to step up and keep these guys in line. I love to run and play, be brushed and cuddle.  I do have a very strong prey drive so no small dogs or cats for me. My new home should have a non submissive male to play with, a large yard and a minimum 5 foot fence, I am looking for my own people to love and I have a lot of love to give. Like all of my brothers and sisters I am used to being around other dogs so I would not do well as an only dog and I will need a 5 foot fence minimum at my new digs

Vivaldi

Hi my name is Vivaldi, I am 10 months old and I am adorable, I am a bit shy when I first meet you, but I warm up quickly.  I love squeaky toys, just ask my mom and her coworkers about her last zoom  call.  I am a jumper so I need a minimum 6 foot privacy fence and I must have at least one friend to play with because I am a total social butterfly.  I am currently living in New York.  My foster mom thinks it would be best if I was not in a home with small dogs (under 50lbs) or cats because I play a bit hard and might accidently hurt someone.

Viola

Hi my name is Viola, I am 9 months old, I think I am even cuter than my sister Gigi, but that is for you to decide.  I too love people, love to cuddle, play with toys and run run run.  I am searching for a family that will give me lots of attention and have a friend with a big yard so that we can play until we are exhausted.  I am fostered in Illinois 

ADOPTED

Sonata

Hi my name is Sonata and I am the oldest of the Boston Pups I am 18 months old - I am a long legged beauty looking for my very own person.  I love my toys and to run in the yard, I play great with dogs my size, but no small dogs or kitties please.  I will need a large yard with at least a 5 foot fence because I do like to run full tilt.  I have always been part of a big pack, so I would be lonely without a playmate.  I do like to cuddle and give kisses in my down time and I love to be brushed - baths not so much.  Sonata is currently being fostered in Vermont and will be available after her spay.

Mozart

Hi my name is Mozart, I am 16 months old, my foster Dads call me pony, well because that's about how big I am.  I am learning all sorts of new things, I am learning that you are supposed to go outside to go potty, how to play with toys, but the best thing I have learned is how to snuggle on the human's bed with them.  I too am looking for my very own people, I need a yard to run and play and a friend to play with (5 foot fencing minimum please).  I am being fostered in Pennsylvania and will be ready for my furever home after my neuter.

FOSTER SUCCESS

rachmaninoff

Hi my name is Rachmaninoff, I am 16 months old - I am the clown of the group, so far there aren't any good photos of me because I am always running, jumping and goofing around.  I just can't sit still for a photo op.  If you are looking for a big handsome guy to add to your pack - I am your man!  Like my brothers and sisters, I have always been with other dogs so I would like to have a friend to play with in my large fenced yard. ( 5 foot height minimum) I cannot live with small dogs or cats.  I am neutered and up to date on all of my vaccinations.  I am currently being fostered in Illinois, so if you think I might want to make you my family, please fill out an application or if you have one in already please send a message to my people and let them know that you are interested in me.

Melody

Hi my name is Melody, I am 9 months old and as sweet as can be.  There is a small human in my foster home and I find her absolutely fascinating!  We get to hear bedtime stories and cuddle when it is time to go to sleep.  I get along great with my four legged  foster sister who is an Ibizan/Afghan mix and my foster brother who is a blind mini dachshund.  I am very careful with him.  I have not met any cats yet, I might be ok with them, but I don't know for sure.  I do need a large fenced yard with a minimum 5 foot fence and a friend to play with. I am currently being fostered in Pennsylvania and will be available to a new home as a foster until I get spayed and then I can be officially adopted by you.

FOSTER SUCESS

Bach

Hi my name is Bach I am one of the Boston Pups and soon I will  be ready for my new life.  I am a big handsome boy, don't let my size fool you though I am a lover.  I like to give cuddles and kisses and I loved to be brushed - just look at my puppy curls!.  I am almost 16 months old and I am currently being fostered in Pennsylvania.  I will need a minimum 5 foot fence.  I have not met any cats or really small dogs, but I have had fun playing with a 25lb dog.  

ADOPTED

the three musketeers

We are the 3 Musketeers - Aramis, Athos and Porthos - we come from a land far far away, Kamchatka Russia which is actually closer to Alaska than Moscow.  First we had to get to Moscow which took a lot of doing, thank you to all of the wonderful friends who helped us get there.  Now we are in Moscow, waiting for our chance to get on a flight to the USA.  Aramis already has a home and a new name - he is going to be called Pushkin and live in New York City.  Athos and Porthos are brothers approximately 2 years old and very bonded, we would love for them to stay together.  We don't know a lot about their history, just that Aramis is their dad, they are very used to living in the cold, they do not like cats and they need a large yard with a 6 foot fence.

Artemis

I am Pushkin, formerly Artemis and I am the father to Athos and Porthos.  I have found my home in New York City with a lovely woman who has another Borzoi and a Husky.  I will be living in the Big Apple and getting used to city life.  A far cry from what I am used to.

athos

I am Athos, I will be coming to America soon and looking for my new family.  I am 2 years old, up to date on vaccinations and neutered.  I am used to the cold, so a northern state would probably be better for me than a southern state.  I would love to have my brother as a roommate as we are best friends.  We have so much in common - we don't like cats, we play well together and we both need a large yard with a 6 foot fence and you would get two dogs that you know are good together.

porthos

I am Porthos, I will be coming to America soon and looking for my new family.  I am 2 years old, up to date on vaccinations and neutered.  My bio is pretty much the same as my brother's.  We make a stunning pair. I am used to the cold, so a northern state would probably be better for me than a southern state.  I would love to have my brother as a roommate as we are best friends.  We have so much in common - we don't like cats, we play well together and we both need a large yard with a 6 foot fence and you would get two dogs that you know are good together.

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.
