Painting by Edward Herbert Miner ENEMIES OF WOLVES AND JACKALS: RUSSIAN WOLFHOUNDS (FOREGROUND) AND THE LITTLE-KNOWN RAMPUR Perfect poise marks every move of the long-haired, aristocratic Wolfhound, or Borzoi. Developed centuries ago torun down thepredatory wolf, it nearly died out when the marauders grew less troublesome and farmers no longer needed this hound. Breeders today find itanexcellent pet and exhibition dog. The smooth-haired Rampur lives in southern Asia, where herders use it to course the jackal.
