Francie Stull and her husband, Chuck, had bred champion Borzoi under the kennel name Kristull for many years when they decided they wanted a second breed. After thinking about many existing breeds, they realized what they actually wanted didn’t exist. In 1984, Francie began the development of what would eventually become the Silken Windhound, a small, elegant sighthound with a silky coat.
