Silken Windhounds are gaining recognition all over the world as one of the very few
really serious new breed creations in recent times.
The Silken Windhound is a small longhaired sighthound breed from USA. Starcastle Hounds are proud to be the first breeder of Silken Windhounds in Europe and the first breeder of a Silken Windhound that obtained a national champion title.
Breeding for twenty years, winning numerous titles and gaining numerous championships made us choose shows a bit more rationally and selectively. We are constantly trying to be a part of all the most important shows: European and World Dogs Shows, Crufts and the most important Sighthound Special Shows, as well as the annual Slovenian Sighthound Club Special Show.Borzoi
