The Saluki is a breed of dogs known for speed, stamina and endurance. It resembles the Azawakh or Sloughi, which were commonly known as the Royal dogs of Egypt. Until the designation of Sloughi as a breed, it was commonly mixed with Sloughis in England and some other European countries. Salukis are perhaps one of the oldest known breeds of domesticated dog.

This odor-free dog is easy to groom. The longer-haired part of the dog should be brushed and combed. It is an average shedder. Salukis come in two varieties - the Smooth, having short silky hair all over their bodies, and the feathered, with long silky fringes on the ears, tail and rear of the limbs.

Health Issues:

Like most sight-hounds, the Saluki is a very healthy breed. The biggest problem to worry about is their sensitivity to anesthesia (the condition of having the feeling of pain and other sensations blocked) as a result of their low levels of body fat. They are also prone to genetic eye diseases and cancer and may get sunburnt on their noses easily.

To minimize the risk of your Saluki developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a dog from a reputable breeder.
