A one-year-old Borzoi Sighthound named Eris is thought to have the world’s longest snout. Her owner, 26-year-old Joey Kidd-Kambourian, is often stopped by strangers on their walks together. Eris, who is an Instagram celebrity with 102,000 followers, also has her own line of merch going. Joey, who is also a jewelry designer in Ohio, said, “I got Eris in July 2018 and my life has been quite the whirlwind since.”
Joey added, “We actually started Eris’ Instagram as a scrapbooking project with the intention of having a place for us to look back on her growth and have a favorite picture from each day. It’s been wild to watch it grow in the way that it has. Whilst there are other dogs that are a bit longer than her in general, I definitely think she could be in the running for the world’s longest nose.
“I don’t think there is anybody tracking this record at the moment though… but it would be great for Eris if they did! Sighthound dogs have always been a fascination for me, and Borzois are incredibly gracious as a breed. Walk with Eris can take a very long time in the day; We get stopped a lot as people want to ask questions or know what kind of dog she is. She’s got a really big personality, and a lot of our neighbors know who she is, and she loves saying hello!” he continued.

A very snoot. Eris sometimes sleeps with her eyes just a little bit open, which looks so strange. We’re not always 100% sure she’s actually asleep. Hope everybody has a restful Sunday! ——————————————————— #borzoi #russianwolfhound #wolfhound #dailyfluff #floof #weirddog #snoot #dogsofinstagram #rva #sighthound #doggo #instadog #naptime #dogsofig #sleepy #boopmynose #dogstagram #cute #ilovemydog #sillydog #longdog ———————————————————
Joey apparently wanted a Borzoi Sighthound because they have a calm and friendly nature. But in addition to that, they also have a lack of health issues – something that is common in larger dogs.
He stated, “They’re a very quiet breed – for example, we can count the number of times Eris has barked on one hand – and they’re incredibly sweet. Borzoi’s also have the size of some of the larger breeds without having many health issues.”
