I've been involved in the sport of purebred dogs for over thirty years. I began in the early 70's with a German Shepherd Dog I showed in obedience and conformation. From the late 70's into the late 80's I bred and showed Bloodhounds under the prefix, Woodsong. After my last Bloodhound died I decided it was time to change breeds. I'd always loved the look of Salukis so I began my research.
I purchased my foundation bitch, Ch. Braemoor Silhouette ad Zaharah, JC in 1990. It was as if my soul had come home! I bred my first Sterling litter - or should I say "lit" as there was only one puppy - in 1994. That puppy was the dam of two litters born in 1999 and 2003. Her daughter is now the dam of the latest Sterling youngster. I am fortunate to produce Specialty winning and group placing hounds. Of equal importance to me, I've been blessed with two certified therapy dogs and one agility titled hound. I quite enjoy the challenge of training in agility. Hopefully, the future will see more Sterling hounds with agility titles.
I breed for a balanced dog with moderate angles, good muscle, light and floaty movement. At the end of the day though, we must live with our salukis so I breed for fun and stable temperaments that compliment their owners lives.
