Meet Ephraim

Ephraim is a 5-year-old male Borzoi. At 107lbs, the Big E is a very large dog but he is sweet and gets along well with everyone in his foster home. In the past E has been in stressful situations and not reacted well. It's important that his next home be a calm, supportive environment where he can feel safe and just be the big, adorable lug he is. Big E seems to do well when surrounded by other dogs and that's the kind of home we're looking at for him.

E has a docked tail from an old injury. He does have all four feet--but he has no idea where they are at any given time.

Ephraim is currently fostered in Virginia and is available for adoption throughout the US and Canada. His adoption fee is $300, which covers his travel expenses to SHUG, neutering and other veterinary care.

NOTE: Please do not click the "Adopt Me" button on this page. If you are interested in adopting a dog from SHUG you must go to our website and fill out our application at We will not reply to your email until you have taken the time to fill out our application. We apologize for the inconvenience but we are an all volunteer organization with limited resources. This is the best way we have found to weed out the "window shoppers". There are a lot of people who just want to ask questions but will never adopt and unfortunately we just don't have time to chat.
