“We get stopped a lot, because people want to ask questions, or know what kind of dog she is. She’s also got a really big personality, so a lot of our neighbours know who she is, and she just loves saying hello to them!” Lily told Bored Panda

The Borzoi sighthound dog breed originated in Russia where their name literally translates to ‘fast,’ they’re known as wolfhounds there.

They may look similar to greyhounds, but they are quite different. They are much quieter and make great pets.
