Eris, a gentle Borzoi, may not be distinguished as the world’s fastest shoe-ripper or the strongest sofa-wrecker (just like other dogs) but she has one distinct feature that sets her apart from any other dogs: having (apparently) the world’s longest nose.
While it’s not official yet, her 12.2-inch long nose has not met any contender, which makes her the only known dog with this incredible nose length. But Eris does not obviously bother with this record as she is already satisfied with her human mom’s love, care, and affection.
Lily Kambourian, a 27-year-old jewelry store owner, adopted Eris in 2018 and made her an official family member ever since. The Borzoi was originally born in Keysville, Virginia, with her other two siblings and started living in Richmond since Lily adopted her.
Even with her unusual physical feature, Lily made her feel very special and filled her with love every single day.
Lily shared that when her dog was just a puppy, they were warned that the dog might encounter dental issues like her teeth poking into her gums because of Eris’ long nose. But fortunately, according to Lily, Eris has somehow grown past it and had not encountered any difficulty. In fact, Eris lives a very normal life today, just like any other dog, except for being a head-turner whenever Lily walks her on the street. The fur mom adds that people can’t help but stare at her dog’s long nose and are always figuring out what kind of breed she is.
But one of the things that makes her a normal dog is, of course, her antics. Her owner said that even if Eris’ breed is known to be a quiet type, the lady dog surprises everyone with her grumpy and goofy side. And these things only make her more adorable.
Lily shared another of Eris’ quirks: that she uses her long nose to sneak between tight gaps, stick her nose on the fence, and get in between two people.
Even with this ‘crazy’ side of her, she’s always excited to meet other people, especially dogs, but she’s a bit shy when meeting dogs smaller than her. And with these things, it only shows that even with her very long nose, she is, indeed, just a normal dog like her fellow furry pals.
But these physical feature proves to be some advantage to her as she currently has more than 177,000 followers on Instagram, who can’t help but adore his pointy nose.
