Sloughi


Sloughi The Sloughi breed is a sighthound breed that is closely related to that of the Azawakh breed but bears no relation to the Saluki. The Sloughi's Behavior Source: Wikipedia, American Sloughi Association Recommended for: pet, hunting dog The Sloughi dog breed is not hard to train, but is a bit sensitive. Sloughis must be trained gently with positive reinforcement. They are faithful to their human families and prefer to stick close to them and be comfortable at home. But these homebody dogs do require regular exercises appropriate for their sizes. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home. The Sloughi's Physical Characteristics Here are some of the characteristics of the Sloughi breed as determined by the American Sloughi Association's published breed standard.

  • Size: males 26- 29 inches, females 24 - 27 inches
  • Coat: very short, dense, fine
  • Color: light sand to red sand
  • Eyes: large, dark, amber if light-coated
  • Ears: set high, drooping, close to head, triangular, round tips
  • Muzzle: elongated wedge, perceptibly as long as skull
  • Nose: black, well opened nostrils
  • Tail: thin, lean, in line with croup

The Sloughi's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia. Country/Region of Origin: Morocco Original purpose: hunting Name: Also known as the Arabian Greyhound and the Sloughi Moghrebi Historical notes: The origin of the Sloughi dogs is uncertain. Sloughis cannot be found anywhere else except in northern Africa where they are still used for hunting. There is evidence that something that looks much like the Sloughi existed as far back as 3000 B.C.
