Once I'd discovered this beautiful breed I had to add a sample to my portfolio and here are the stages of progress.
Salukis are most strongly connected to the Middle East, and often referred to as the "Royal Dog of Egypt" and prized for their hunting prowess in hot and dry lands.
They are known to be placid, friendly, highly sensitive and very affectionate, but keep their distance from strangers and bond well with their owner or main carer.
Though they make good family pets, they are highly strung and require truly dedicated and very early training and socialisation, where being introduced to different situations such as people, children, noise, and other animals, will prevent them becoming timid and shy.
