Country of Origin: Iran - The Saluki and Sloughi have parallel histories and most likely date back to the same stem in the ancient Middle East. A painting dated 3600 BC shows such dogs. Esteemed by sheiks, they coursed gazelles and other game. Recognized by BKC in 1923, AKC in 1927, and CKC in 1938. They were never sold but presented as gifts reaching Europe eventually this way. First imported to Britain in 1895 but of little interest until after WW1. Recognized by UKC three years later and the US in 1927.

Character: Salukis have a mind of their own, but are graceful, peaceful, and need to be with their owner. This dog is cautious around strangers and has a very strong hunting instinct.
