Borzoi Markings Guide

One of the most difficult thing for people new to borzoi to learn other than their colors are the markings. Below I hope to make it just a little clearer what we mean when a dog is described as an irish marked, brindle, or a host of others!


Just click on the Links below to see a description as well as a few photos to compare with. Just as a note, some breeders may use different terms, but these are what I have found to be most common. As well, these marking designations may be used together in order to describe a borzoi’s coat.
