Our dogs have earned championships not only in America, but in Canada and Mexico as well.
Our Borzoi have also earned performance titles in ASFA lure coursing, AKC lure coursing, LGRA straight-racing and NOTRA oval-racing, as well as being Top Five or Top Ten ranked (and the #1 LGRA Borzoi 2000, #1 NOTRA Borzoi, and #2 ASFA Borzoi 2003). This site is an online showcase of our beloved dogs. Please come inside and visit. We occasionally have puppies or young adults available to qualified, loving homes.
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
