Borzoi, Boston Terrier: Health Issues & Personality
To ensure it does not develop stomach cramps, divide the Borzoi's daily rations into two or three seperate meals.  It is advisable to vary the Borzoi's diet, but owners should ensure that the dog eats plenty of meat.  Although well suited to domestic life, the Borzoi must run and take long walks.  Its magnificent coat requires special attention, and must be brushed and combed regularly.  Pups must be closely watched: they tend to grow so rapidly that they need calcium supplements.  This breed has a tendancy to suffer leg fractures.  The Borzoi is one of the least intelligent dogs.

Boston Terrier:
The Boston Terrier adapts  perfectly to domestic life, but it still must have regular exercise.  Several peculiarities should be noted: If it is too active and gets overheated, it has difficulty breathing, which could strain its heart.  The Boston's short haired coat does not need much grooming, just a daily brushing and rub-down with a chomois will keep it clean and shiny.  No other special care is required, beyond routine inspections for external parasites.
