We are all individuals and a Borzoi is no exception. NBRF fosters evaluate the needs of each Borzoi in our care. Help us ensure everyone's happiness by telling us more about yourself. Filling out an application is the first step in the process of becoming eligible to adopt an NBRF Borzoi.
I am 3 year old female looking to relocate – currently living in Florida, but really need a cooler climate. What you get - a loving companion for long walks, car rides, al fresco dining, farmers markets and just hanging out. What I get - a big yard, with a six foot privacy fence, a doggie friend to play with and someone who works from home or is retired and wants to help me explore my full potential. I am very smart and I think I would be good at agility or nose training or something that makes my brain work. I have never lived with small dogs or cats, so let’s not go there. If you have what I need and you think I’m what you want, please fill out an application.
Jasper here, I am a sweet young thang looking for my special home. I am an 11 month old buddle of energy and I need a playmate that can keep up with me, maybe someone a little older, but not too old, because I can run all day. I am a big boy, so my playmate should be a big dog as well. I love all 2 legged as well as 4 legged beings, and have been told I am the bestest boy. I would like nothing better than to share your home, your large fenced yard (with a 6 foot fence), your heart and your bed
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 $600 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.
