Please meet Matisse.  One Handsome Dude!!!


Matisse will be 9 years young in  November.  He is great with people, other Borzoi or Silkens, but cats or small dogs are a definate NO!  He is NOT good with young children but would be considered for a home with older, dog experienced children who know how to respect an older gentleman.




Matisse was adopted out by NBRF in 2011 and was recently returned to us as his owner's health has declined and she could no longer care for him properly. He was her dearly loved companion but she had to go into a nursing home so, he is now back with his foster mom in S. CA.




Matisse is perfectly house trained and in excellent condition, current on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.  So. what's not to love here?  He is a very happy Boy and absolutely loves people! No real baggage here with him, just a happy, sweet and loving Borzoi. Did I mention he is really Handsome too!!  Definite eye candy!!




If you would like to welcome Matisse into your home and heart, please fill out our adoption application on our website and  email it to Carol Backers at




Please remember to consider his and your location when applying.  Matisse is in Southern California.  Unless you are prepared to drive a distance to get him, NBRF can not get him "to" you.
