I've met him. He's the size of an average Greyhound. He was very sweet, pretty, and very puppy-like in personality.

I believe Silken Rescue was contacted before he was turned over to the Borzoi people. We do NOT think he is a Silken, but rather a young Borzoi. Apparently he was intact and the size of his testicles indicated puppy rather than adult... He's too tall at 26" and got too much back skull for a Silken.

His head is a little funky cuz of his 'wry' nose--may be from a previous jaw fracture. There was talk about trying to track is parentage through DNA but it was going to be too costly. They may still do one test for the MDR1 gene--if he's a carrier or affected, he's either a Silken or a Long Haired Whippet, since Borzoi don't have that gene.

I think the general feeling, however, was, "Who cares, let's just find him a good home!"

They have him listed on the NBRF website saying he was adopted and it is not working out. He has too much spunk and energy for the existing dogs (a Borzoi and a Silken).

Too funny, Martha.
