Product description


Known as the greyhound of the desert, the Saluki is among the oldest of domesticated dogs. The Arabs prized them highly and they were used as hunting dogs. The Complete Saluki, new edition, provides invaluable information on this rare breed.'

From the Inside Flap

The Saluki, the greyhound of the desert, is one of the oldest breeds of domestic dogs. The Arabs believed they were a sacred gift from Allah and called the Saluki El Hor, the noble one. Salukis were used for hunting and they were so highly prized that they were kept separate from the ordinary 'unclean' dogs and were allowed to share their masters' tents. The beautiful 'Gazelle Hound' has remained remarkably true to its original type, and in this highly comprehensive book of the breed, Diana and Ken Allan trace its history from its desert origins to the show ring and the coursing field. They highlight all aspects of this versatile breed, and give invaluable information on breeding, choosing a puppy and general care. There is an indepth analysis of the Breed Standard, plus tips for exhibiting the Saluki in the show ring. For the specialist, there is detailed information on breeding a litter. The Complete Saluki, which has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by the Dog Writers Association of America, is a must for the pet owner, the showgoer, and the sportsman.
