What kind of translation are you looking for? "Velvet" in Russian
is бархат or barkhat (transliterated).
I suppose "Needle-Nose" could be translated directly, it's more an adopted
technical term, the word I've heard most that refers to "needle nose" I
believe translates to "nippers" but that's for a pair of pliers.
игольчатый (igolchatyi) means needle-like which is probably more in line
with what you're looking for. I need to ask a real Russian.
Do you know what type your Borzoi! is? And is it a Psovaya or Hortaya?
I'm partial to Caucasian Ovcharkas. Alas, long hair animals don't do well
down here in The Republic of Texas!
