Click to Visit the Salukis

Welcome to the wonderful world of "Shikadin" (pronounced Shy-ka-deen´), located in the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex of north central Texas. I've had dogs and other pets my entire life. I have had purebred dogs since the 1960's and been involved in the sport of showing dogs for most of the time since then.

Since 1972, my primary breed has been salukis, with a few afghan hounds mixed in, for good measure. The sighthound personality and temperament is a perfect fit for me. In 2001, the first Chinese crested joined our family. Though they are placed in the Toy Group, by the American Kennel Club, these little dogs are truly "sighthounds" in personality and temperament.

In 2004, Nancy Larson of "Windspiel" and I combined our knowledge and experience and bred our first litter of Shikadin-Windspiel Chinese cresteds. However, as of mid-2008, Nancy has had to relocate back to Canada, due to chronic illness. Therefore, my daughter and I will continue our dog related activities, as previously, under our prefix, "Shikadin".

Fortunately, my daughter, Deanna Glenn, shares my passion for our canine family and the sport of showing purebred dogs. She is the co-breeder/co-owner of all the salukis.

Jenna Lostale of Wavecrest Chinese Cresteds in Canada has graciously and successfully shown our cresteds to their Canadian titles for us. We are so thankful for her friendship and expertise.
