Kalamazoo MI, March 18, 2011 – The United Kennel Club is pleased to announce the recognition of the Silken Windhound, which originated in the United States, to our registry.

The Silken Windhound is small to medium-sized and is an intelligent hound of balanced character. While this breed exhibits strong prey drive in the field they are gentle, affectionate and devoted companion animals. The Silkens participate in a variety of dog events such as conformation, lure coursing, agility, obedience, flyball and perform as therapy and service dogs.


UKC welcomes the Silken Windhound and its fanciers and look forward to seeing this exciting breed compete in UKC events.
