Yes, Anastasia had one, her Pooka was a lot bigger than the mini-puppy in the cartoon film. oddly while Anastasia grew up- Pooka stayed in the puppy size range, and they ar such as Beautiful dog. actually they were quite popular with Ladies of the Russian court. it was only ( Nobless oblige) for Stacy to have one of the national breed. by the way Pooka means Female Dog in Russian- in both senses of the term.

Is the Borzoi easy to train?

The Borzoi has been said to have a catlike personality, and although they are very smart dogs they can be a bit difficult to train. Training should begin at a young age and remain firm and consistent. Borzoi are very sensitive dogs and your patience is a must. You should always use positive methods when it comes to training and never hit a Borzoi. As stated they are very sensitive and although very affectionate, they are also timid and you will find that your trust will be lost if you raise a hand to a Borzoi. Professional help and obedience classes would be wise, if possible.
