|Tamara was my second borzoi. She came
to me because she needed a new home. She was 8 months and I was her third
owner. Her temperament
was not the best (probably due to bad experiences). She was afraid of men, you couldn't give her a pat at
the back, she was afraid of the lead and very nervous. But with hard traning and
stubornness I won her trust and she turn out to be fairly "normal"
- you could pat her back, she wasn't afraid of the lead, and so on, but
she never completely rely on men.
trained obedience with her up to second class but we never compete
First time I showed her, when she was 9 months,
she became BOG-3 with a great critique. After that her puppy-coat blowed
away, (it was enormous)
and she never got into a long coat again. She had a lot but it was short
and that's not what the judges want.
