South Russian Steppe Hound

No votes yet

The hound came into existence closely after the Russian Revolution in 1917 when the Russian Greyhounds crossed with local dogs to produce the slightly modified South Russian Steppe Hound. The medium sized Russian hound weighs 45 to 75 pounds and stands 24 to 28 inches tall. Today the South Russian Steppe Hound is most commonly kept by the Kirghiz tribes in the regions of the Russian Caucasus Mountains, the Volga and the Don River where they are renowned for their high speeds and coat colors.
