I spend a lot of my time telling people I will never own another dog,
never. This is a borzois, and I would have a hard time saying no to
having one of these dogs. I believe I could have an intelligent
conversation with this dog and it wouldn't bark all the time I was
I read an article
this morning that stated Congresswoman Gabby Giffords is being
evaluated to see if she qualifies for this kind of dog as a service dog.
"Operation Wolfhound, which operates out of Arizona, uses
borzois because the breed has the temperament most suitable to respond
to stress. Congresswoman Giffords worked with Operation Wolfhound from
the beginning and her staff is very important to them."
The breeder in the article is donating 5 of her 12 dogs to Operation
Wolfhound that places them as service dogs for veterans suffering from
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I think you will find the article interesting.
