The Silken Windhound is truly a lagniappe hound. Silkens, these small, long-coated dogs fill an empty niche in the sighthound family.  With true sighthound prey drive, Silkens love to run and chase.   Their favorite place is still that of family member, making themselves comfortable on the sofa, bed, or other perfect resting place.  While waiting for the recognition that will allow them to take their place beside their sighthound cousins in the show ring, Silkens are participating in lots of other canine activities, including agility, fun and games lure coursing, and pet therapy.

Everyone Wants to Pet Punzi

Now, at 2 years old, Punzi's a pro and knows exactly how to make someone happy.


At 5 months of age, Rapunzel started her career with the Baton Rouge Capitol Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS) pet therapy volunteers.  She stepped into our Reiche's paw prints as one CAAWS's most popular therapists.

Punzi is small enough to sit on a lap and big enough to reach down and pet.

On her first visit, she was passed from lap to lap like a bag of potato chips and let everyone handle her like a veteran.

Silkens have such wonderful personalities and are so gentle, they make the perfect little therapists.
