5 Tazy, the Breed That Does Not Exist

Tazy, the Breed That Does Not Exist

Posted on April 10, 2012 by team


There’s such an old saying: “One tazy will feed the whole aul”. Hunting greyhounds used to be the main wealth of Kazakhs. Since the second half of the last century their number began decreasing. Today there are not more than 300 of real tazy, like “300 spartans”… 

Not far from Almaty there is a house where a pure-blooded female tazy gave birth to 10 pups.

It’s unknown if the owners will be proud of the dogs, they are still only a week old

These pups need as much care as human babies do. In a year it will become clear which of them are the strongest, which are weaker.

Dog breeding is a favorite hobby for Zhursyn Burlakiev so he doesn’t grudge spending time and money.

Tazy is a purely Kazakh breed that has been bred all over the country for many years.

Konstantin Plakhov has been breeding tazy for 20 years. Today he’s an owner of a tazy club, here he came to examine the dogs.

Breeders are tough people – they value purity and development of the breed more than anything else.

    They destroy the pelts. Better to use a rifle/ trap imho.

    Very cute dogs, feel sorry for the foxes though. :/
