The Silken Windhound fills a niche in the sighthound breeds with a smaller, long-haired hound. The Silken Windhound may bring to mind a small Borzoi, but Silken Windhounds are uniquely their own breed. Silken Windhounds are bred to an Official Standard that outlines the ideal dog.
The International Silken Windhound Society (ISWS) – the “parent” organization – is the only recognized Silken Windhound registry. The ISWS and its members are dedicated to the advancement of the Silken Windhound and breed for health and temperament as well as conformation and performance.
