Update: All have found forever homes
Meet the China Five
NBRF-I Will be bringing 5 of 14 Borzoi here from China. They will be arriving in San Francisco sometime in January and February. The exact dates have not been set yet. The dogs were surrendered to Candy Cane Rescue in China and all but Cici are being boarded in Beijing. They all have been spayed and neutered. Cici remains at the veterinary clinic awaiting surgery to remove a plate from her foreleg that became infected. She will be released as soon as her recovery allows.
All the Borzoi surrendered were actually very much loved by their owner and it was obvious they loved him too. He just could not take care of so many dogs. There were 9 dogs he kept. He is allowing them to be spayed and neutered so there will be no more Borzoi.
These dogs are all sweet and have sound temperaments with Pinky being the smallest and shyest of the group. NBRF already has a home pending for Pinky. If you are interested in adopting one of the China 5 or Eva, please fill out our adoption application and email to Carol Backers firstname.lastname@example.org. The adoption for for the China 5 is $500 each and as Eva is from Korea, her adoption fee is the same. Please remember that location is always a consideration. The adopter being responsible for the cost of transportation to get a dog to them. Please understand, the cost to NBRF-I to bring any Borzoi here from another country is very expensive. NBRF-I is completely funded by the generosity of donations. If you can help in any way, no donation is too small.
