The Meadow

"I like to walk with my dogs in the fields and meadows. Borzoi are looking wonderful in the blooms! Many times I have noticed that borzois can be interested in some flowers, they look at them, touch them and even pick them from time to time. I dream of doing it again one day in beautiful summer fields near my home in Ukraine."


Daisies symbolize purity, innocence, new beginnings, joy and cheerfulness. We wish that for you again soon, Svetlana.

A Moment in Time...

"Several years ago my friend with her little daughter came to visit us in our home in Ukraine. I took the dogs to another room, because I was not sure if a small child would be frightened by many big dogs. But the girl knew that we have dogs and she asked me to let her see them.

The first dog to meet her was big young male with very sweet character. When the girl saw the dog, she got really excited, looking at a borzoi like he was a real miracle and tried to hug him. Our Borzoi looked at her with shining eyes and a smile on his face. They were very happy together.

Now it is just a warm memory from our past life, which we had before the war. We are all in different countries and places - the girl with her mom are in Germany, I am in Poland, and my husband is in Ukraine. But we still can have our memory, hope and dreams...

The Art of Anastasia

Anastasia Cover Photo.png

Anastasia Stus is a Ukrainian artist, Borzoi breeder and valued friend in our community. Her interest in drawing is life long, working with black gel pen, liners and colored pencils to capture the rich and diverse form of the Borzoi in a unique way.


“There is no hidden meaning in my work, I just like details and composition. Creating a painting for me is more of a long thought process than a feeling of inspiration. I just want to attract the energy of other worlds and dimensions in some of my paintings, without putting any meaning into them. A person should feel something looking at my work, and not think what I wanted to say. I believe that we often think and analyze too much, but we need to feel. I collect a lot of photos of flowers, leaves, berries, animal movement, bones, horns, skulls, some objects, and paintings by other artists in different styles. When I feel the energy to create pictures then I start painting.”



“I think that if all people started sharing only good things with each other and with the world, then all conflicts would end much faster.”


In the spirit of that sentiment, NBRF is honored to share the distinctive art of this special artist. From her original designs, the following sixteen giclees are now being made available for purchase. As she focuses on the safety and well being of herself and family, these drawings were sent electronically from Ukraine and are printed in the US. These prints retain her original signature but cannot be numbered by the artist. Watermark is NOT present on final print.


This is not an NBRF fundraiser but the means by which we can assist her. This is Anastasia’s passion presented with the dignity of her being able to work from war torn Ukraine. Every cent of the proceeds from this sale go directly to her!
