Pedigree Database

You can find the ISWS Pedigree Database below.

The purpose of the ISWS Registry is to preserve the integrity of the Silken Windhound breeding records and to establish a canine DNA database with DNA profiles for the purposes of parent verification, individual genetic identity, and to identify dogs that may contribute chromosomal abnormalities to their offspring and to document the results in the ISWS Health Registry.

Breeders must DNA test every dog to verify its parentage prior to breeding.  If the breeder disregards this DNA testing requirement, the offspring will not be eligible for registration until the breeder complies with the regulation.

Sadly, all unregistered offspring will not only be lost to the breed, but the ISWS will also not consider them purebred Silkens.
