An adorable two-year-old borzoi from Virginia has become an internet sensation for her unusually long nose that measures a whopping 12 inches.
Eris, who was adopted as a puppy in 2018, is unofficially titled ‘Madam Eris Overbite, Queen of Snoot’ by her owner Lily Kambourina, who believes the canine has the biggest nose in the world.
With more than 1.7 lakh followers on Instagram, Eris is one of the most popular dogs on social media these days. Her photos are regularly shared on Twitter and Facebook, with users expressing shock and awe at her long nose.
Eris was born to a litter of three but was adopted by Lily. At that time, she had dental issues and her teeth would often poke into her gums, said Lily. Although she drops food while eating, there is no other issue from her long nose.
“She is so happy to see people and other dogs but can get very skittish around very small dogs. Sometimes she gets grumpy but it is so goofy and lovely because borzoi is very quiet. I don’t think we’ve heard her actually bark,” Lily was quoted by Metro.
