About the Saluki
Among the world’s oldest breeds, the slim but rugged Saluki was the hunting hound of kings for thousands of years. Salukis are swift and agile sprinters who love a good chase. They make gentle, dignified, and independent but loyal pets.
Their bodies have been found in Egyptian tombs dating from 2100 BC. The Saluki was used to course fox, hare, and gazelle also in the sport of falconry being held in high esteem by the sheikhs. This swift moving hunter was considered a symbol of royalty presented as a gift of tribute.
The beauty of Salukis has been a thing of wonder for thousands of years. They’re slim and leggy, but very strong and perfectly balanced, like a great athlete or dancer. Males can stand between 23 and 28 inches at the shoulder; females can be much shorter. They come in a many colors and patterns. Their large, oval-shaped eyes are warm and intelligent.
Salukis are highly adaptable, able to live and work in any climate. They’re magnificent animals, but owning them comes with many special challenges.
