Small animal safe:

Birdie greets with smiles, tail wags and walks well on lead. She really is an exceptional little Lady with a soft and gentle personality.  She is fine with other Borzoi or large dogs but not cats, small dogs or animals.   We know she will be a wonderful addition to just about any home without cats or small dogs.  Although Birdie is an "older Lady" at 8 years, ( we aren't going to tell her she's not a youngster anymore) she  still runs and plays with the kids. 

Birdie is just precious and so "wants" and needs her own people.  Please consider Birdie.  She is absolutely adorable and I promise, you will not be sorry!  

As you can tell, I have fallen for her!!  She is just adorable!!

Birdie is an 8 year old spayed female who is heart worm negative, current on all vaccinations and is microchipped.  Birdie is a very sweet reserved older lady who prefers the couch.  She is very quiet when walking on a leash and loves to be petted and loved on.  She gets along well with other borzoi but it is unknown if she is small dog or cat safe. 

Birdie is from Pickle Hill.

This very sweet older girl is looking for a home with a soft bed, warm heart, kind hands and lots of love.  If you are interested in adopting Birdie, please fill out our adoption application and email it to Carol Backers at


Birdie Update // September 2011 // From her FOREVER HOME with NBRF Director, Carol Backers:

Birdie has made herself quite at home here in Northern MI.  She has put the Squirrels and Chipmunks on notice that they are not welcome in "her" territory!

She has taken to sleeping next to our bed at night and has found all the doggy beds through out the house.  Our other Borzoi, Czar doesn't quite know what to do about this intruder who has turned his life upside down but he is dealing with it.  Suddenly there is competition for Goodies!
Czar sings to commercials on TV and Birdie sings along.  Czar being the Baritone and Birdie being the Soprano.  Good thing we don't have neighbors!
She can't wait for me to open my eyes in the morning in anticipation of breakfast and has finally figured out that weekends mean no alarm clock so mom gets to sleep in.  She has teamed up with Czar and they double team us now to get up and feed them!!   Now please!!  Cold noses tend to wake one out of a perfectly lovely sleep.
We just adore our little Birdie and I think she is coming around to feeling the same.  Life is good with Borzoi in it!!
