Don't know much about them - but they are certainly really interesting. I've heard them to be really lazy with moderate exercise needs only. There's a lady with a huge Irish wolfhound that we sometimes meet out on walks in afternoons - totally cool dog, very relaxed yet sociable and inquisitive. Agree with the point about them being hard to actually acquire though, I've met a few people that are more than qualified to own one contact breeders only to never have gotten a response or been blown off after an exchange of one or two emails. The Borzoi is the love of my life hound wise and I really hope to own one someday, but Scottish Deerhounds/Irish Wolfhounds are great too =) Good luck in your search/decision and keep us posted!
