On May 8, 2017, Avatar Desparado, now called Jack, returned to us after almost 3 years from what he thought was his forever family. Jack is 31" at the withers and weighs 85 lbs. If you are interested in Jack's story please click below.
Avatar Borzoi is a modest private dog breeding kennel located north-east of Tucson, Arizona. Dan and Janet Averill own and operate Avatar Borzoi as a hobby (sometimes an obsession) to breed, show, and lure course AKC registered Borzoi.
We began our involvement with Borzoi in 1993, and we are indebted to the counsel of Louise Heaton Siegert and her Cordova-Mishkova breeding program for our foundation. We have also enjoyed the guidance of Mary Fisher and Pat Toy of Mariza Borzoi; they were very generous in sharing their experience with us and other newcomers in the breed. We offer our thanks and respect to these mentors.
We are enjoying our cooperation with Tamara Carey of Sedona Borzoi in pursuit of our shared vision for this wonderful breed. Visit her website at www.sedonaborzoi.com for news and updates from Maple Valley, Washington.
