Saluki - Guide to Salukis

Description: The Saluki's athletic appearance gives the impression he is capable of great speed and endurance. He is gentle, intelligent and devoted. The Saluki is an ancient breed which dates back thousands of years ago to the Middle East. Archaeologist have found images which resemble the Saluki in many artifacts. Additionally, historians believe this type dog was held in such high regard that he was mummified as the Egyptian Pharaohs were. The Saluki is also known as the Royal Dog of Egypt.

The Saluki is a natural sight hound used mostly for chasing gazelle and hares since he has the ability to run at great speeds for a long periods of time. The Saluki is also used as a companion and a guard dog.

While the Saluki was first introduced to England in 1840, interest in this breed didn't really spark until the late 1800s. The first official breed standard was written in 1923 and was also officially recognized by the Kennel Club of England.

Color: Colors of the Saluki coat include white, cream, fawn, golden, red, grizzle and tan, tricolor (white, black and tan) and black and tan. AKC Standard.

Temperament : The Saluki is intelligent, sensitive and independent - which is oftentimes mistaken for being aloof. This is a calm natured breed with a cat-like personality. Training must be done in a consistent, firm, patient and positive manner and the Saluki owner must always be viewed as his pack leader. A lot of positive reinforcement is necessary with Salukis. They need daily exercise (love to run), but caution must be taken when outdoors because this natural sight hound breed will take off and will not respond to your return command.
