Saluki is the oldest of all breeds, dating back as far as 9000 B.C. Salukis are known for their extremely powerful sense of smell, speed, and endurance. Salukis were used for many things throughout ancient history, such as hunting gazelle, hare, and fox.
Salukis love the sun and enjoy laying outside in warm weather. Salukis can survive in both hot and cold weather, but not below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The muzzle contains lips that go past the teeth as well as prick ears that look like they're blushing.
Salukis are also known to be very kind and gentle dogs that get along well with children and other animals. Yet they do not like being left alone for long periods of time.

GROOMING YOUR SALUKI
During the summer months, Salukis only need bathed once every two weeks unless they smell or stinky. If you bathe your Saluki too often or don't bathe them long enough, you can strip oils from their coat which will make them look dull and dry. If this happens, they will need an oatmeal shampoo treatment until the oils are restored back into their skin.
