This Borzoi Dog Might Have The Longest Snout In The World And People Can’t Get Enough Of Her Pictures

Every dog is a distinct individual that may either be typical or atypical for its breed. Most of the times, it’s the latter that is considered special. Just like this internet-famous borzoi dog with a long snout. Dogs are one of the most diverse species as there are about 340 canine breeds in the world. This multitude of breeds explains why dogs look very different from one another. Since domestication, dogs have been bred for specific purposes. Some are bred large enough to serve as reliable guard dogs while some are bred small enough for jobs that bigger dogs can’t do.

Depending on the purpose, canine breeds mostly rely on the dog’s appearance, size, agility, temperament and form. And it goes without saying that each breed has unique physical features and traits. Definitely one of the most intriguing canine breeds is the borzoi, which is also called the Russian wolfhound. This breed is the second tallest sighthound breed in existence, Irish wolfhound being the first. The breed has long slender legs, a narrow body and a long and narrow head. Although their long snout is one of their most striking features, this long dog named Eris is believed to have the world’s longest snout.

According to her owners, Eris has a staggering 12.2 inches long snout which they claim to be a record holder. It’s no secret that dogs with the most unusual features and traits generate a lot of buzz on social media. There’s Mya the Pomsky that looks more like a fox than a dog. And of course, there’s Jiffpom – the most popular dog on Instagram that looks like a plush teddy bear. Both Mya and Jiffpom are undeniably adorable. But there’s also something about Eris ‘the long dog’ that can instantly catch the interest of many people.

Last day for shirts! • • Happy Friday everybody! This week (this whole month really) has flown by, and I can’t believe we’re gearing up for the weekend again. • • Today is the last day of pre-order sales for our only merch launch of 2019, which closes at 11:59 Eastern Time. We had a lot of fun working with the artists and the fine folk down at @bonfire to come up with the design, and then taking feedback from this amazing community here on Instagram to refine it. • • In this picture Eris is watching me procure a treat from a hip bag, and I’m pretty sure she is already thinking about eating it. ? ——————————————————— #borzoi #russianwolfhound #wolfhound #dailyfluff #floof #weirddog #snoot #dogsofinstagram #rva #sighthound #doggo #instadog #happydog #dogsofig #smilingdog #happiness #dogstagram #cute #ilovemydog #mlem #blep #merch ———————————————————

Eris the Borzoi has an astonishing 12.2 inches long snout

Eris was adopted by a couple from Richmond, Lily and Savannah, back in July 2018 when she was just a pup. Typically, sighthounds have extremely long snouts due to the narrowness of their heads. This quality helps them spot their prey even from afar because it allows them to see over an incredibly broad horizon so the dogs can hunt on open ground. But the couple didn’t expect that Eris would grow to be this long.

Despite their reputation as hunters, the dogs are friendly and affectionate as household pets. They are laid-back family dogs that can easily adapt to suburban life. Despite their intimidating size, they are gentle and sensitive dogs but are always fun to be around. Eris the long dog, in particular, has brought smiles to her proud owners. And her owners hope that she could also make other people smile through her Instagram page.

“We were always hoping to share some of the happiness and smiles Eris brings into our house, and in these last few months, it’s felt more impactful than ever. We’re so glad to be able to add a little tiny moment of light to all of the goodness shining through the world.” her owners said.

Practice posing in the early morning light! Starting with the two things that every borzoi knows how to do from birth, I think. The first picture is just sitting normal trying to get a “regal” look, and then the second is just Eris’s default of resorting to silliness after holding it together for like 8 seconds. ? . . Still gets treats and clicks on both as we would love to be able to capture “be silly” for working shoots. ? . . ——————————————————— #borzoi #russianwolfhound #wolfhound #dailyfluff #floof #weirddog #snoot #dogsofinstagram #rva #sighthound #doggo #instadog #happydog #dogsofig #smilingdog #happiness #dogstagram #cute #ilovemydog #sillydog #longdog #longneck ———————————————————

“Human, do you see that? -Eris, looking at a leaf SHE dragged into the house with her beautiful fluffy tail. We have a very narrow window of time where us humans can retrieve said leafs and get them back outside before Eris decides that they are now subjects of her domain and must be placed on the couch and crunched into tiny impossible to clean bits. Truly, she is a just monarch. : : : ——————————————————— #borzoi #russianwolfhound #wolfhound #dailyfluff #floof #weirddog #snoot #dogsofinstagram #rva #sighthound #doggo #instadog #happydog #dogsofig #smilingdog #happiness #dogstagram #cute #ilovemydog #sillydog #longdog ———————————————————
