Hi my name is Andre and I just arrived from China. I was rescued from the Chinese meat market and made it out just before the CDC ban went into effect. Thank you NBRF. I am supposed to be 4 years old, but my foster mom thinks I might be younger. I have only been here a few days so my personality is just starting to emerge - so far the things that are known about me is that I walk well on a leash and that I like to collect shoes. My dream is to have a large fenced yard that I can run and play in and a friend to play with. I am being fostered in Seattle, Washington. I am up to date on my vaccinations, but I still have to be neutered.
Hi my name is Gigi, I am 1 year 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 Washington State.
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.

The fine print
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
All Borzoi will be altered before being placed into any permanent home.
