Silken Windhound

A descendant of the Borzoi, the Silken Windhound also claims genes from Whippets and Shelties but has become an entirely separate breed. As the name would suggest, this gentle dog has flowing, silky fur, which requires at least weekly brushing. Silkens are known for a fairly long lifespan, often living well into their teen years.
