Saluki have been here in the U.S. since 1927. This dog was considered to be the royal dog of Egypt, and as such was considered to be sacred; they were never sold. The Saluki was bred to be a hunter of gazelle. This, of course, would require a very swift and agile dog with a great deal of stamina the Saluki! Athletic, elegant and lean, the Saluki has a short, smooth and silky coat. There is feathering on the long tail, on the backs of the legs and along the belly. The tail, in addition to being quite long, has a curve to it. The ears are long, hanging close to the sides of the head. They shed minimally. Their coat requires minimal grooming attention. They are a very active breed of dog that needs to have a lot of exercise each day, including time to run. Ideal for a family with a large enclosed backyard. Color: white, cream, fawn, golden, grizzle/tan, tricolor, black/tan. The Saluki does best when raised with children from puppyhood; good with older, gentle children. Training: early socialization, gentle discipline and obedience. These dogs need to be walked on a leash (and with a secure hold) because they have been known to take off after cats and other dogs! They are not good with non-canine pets, not aggressive toward other dogs. With its great hearing, the Saluki makes an attentive watchdog of the home. Lifespan: 12 - 14 years.
