Breed Details


Tasy is also known as Tazi, Taji, Tadzi and Mid-Asiatic Borzoi. It is a medium to large sighthound breed that is used to hunt bare, fox, gazelle, wildcat, marmot and even wolf. A Turkish version of Afghan Hound, the exact origination of Tasi is unknown though it is believed that this dog was developed in 18th century from Barzoi, Whippet and Afghan Hound.

Basically a Sighthound, the Tasy specialize in pursuing its prey, keeping it in sight and overpowering it by its agility. Having a slim head, a slender waist, a broad chest and lean legs help them to chase their prey faster than most hound dogs. Mostly all the Tasys are thin skinned. The Tasy has hazel colored large oval eyes, dark nose, a narrow muzzle and a thin twisted tail. Though a sighthound, the Tasy has great sense of smell which it uses during hunt.

This dog stands between 22 to 28 inches and weighs around 55-80 lbs. It has a silky coat that comes in tan, black & tan and grey colours.

This breed is NOT recognized by AKC or any other major kennel club.


The coat color varies from fawn, tan, gray or a combination of black and tan with white patches or polka dots.


The coat of the Tasy is silky and protects the ears, tail and legs with its heavy fringes.


Gentle and submissive by nature, the Tasi has loyal and friendly nature. Very sweet natured and human oriented, these dogs thrive on dependable human companionship. They crave for attention and are eager to please their owner. This active and curious breed is always on the go, and often quite amusing and entertaining to watch while at play. These dogs are very intelligent, obedient by nature, easy to train, and capable of learning to perform many impressive tricks and tasks. When properly socialized from a young age, the Tasy gets along well with children and other pets, known for its sweet and gentle approach to small children and its ability to make friends quickly with other pets due to its social nature. With high intelligence levels, this breed is very trainable as it is willing to learn to please its master. Obedient and docile, the Tasy is quiet around the house and generally like to be around its family most of the time. This breed is highly valued for its excellent hunting and exceptional family pet temperament.


This breed's soft and silky coat requires almost constant attention such as brushing and grooming in order to prevent tangling and maintain its attractive appearance.


Due to its outgoing attitude and eagerness to please and impress its owner, the Tasy generally responds well to basic training and commands.


The Tasy needs to be exercised on a regular basis to prevent boredom from setting in and also to keep him in good shape. The dog also needs to have running sessions regularly in a fenced yard. However, since the Tasys fall under Sighthound dog group, the owner should always put them on a leash while taking them for a walk. The Tasy is definitely not fit for apartment living conditions. A big farm or country home is best suitable for it. Although the dog will be content sleeping indoors, it needs lots of outdoor space to roam about freely.
