Konstantin's Story...
Konstantin is a sweet, shy, soft and gentle, three-year-old, 57-pound, male, Borzoi or Russian Wolfhound looking for a loving guardian. Borzoi are similar in shape to Greyhounds, and are also a member of the sighthound family. Borzoi in Russian means fast … and Konstantin runs like the wind when given a large fenced in area to run in. However, in the home, he’s a couch potato; he’s happy to curl up in his dog bed, or hang out with other dogs, cats, and children. He’s wonderful with everyone and everything. Konstantin has delightful house manners. He is perfect with his housebreaking, never jumps on people or counters. He also takes treats extremely gently from your fingers. Konstantin or Kozzy as his friends call him, is very small for a male Borzoi and was born with defective joints. He was just not made to climb stairs. So, he’s looking for a home with very few stairs to climb, and a large fenced-in yard where he can run. The sights and sounds of the city make him nervous, so he’s looking for a home in a quieter area because leashed walks in the city are stressful for him. To meet and possibly adopt Konstantin, please contact Katherine at or 312-286-5204. His adoption fee of $150 includes a supply of his anti-anxiety medication which he can probably be weaned off of when he’s settled down in new surroundings. He is currently living in Chicago’s Eukranian village neighborhood.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Konstantin, a Chicago Borzoi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Borzoi for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Borzoi dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Borzoi breeders who help with Borzoi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
