    Saluki (Updated)


    saluki-800x800-fci269.pngBrief Description: 

    The whole appearance of this breed should give an impression of grace and symmetry and of great speed and endurance coupled with strength and activity. Smooth variety: the points should be the same with the exception of the coat which has no feathering. Reserved with strangers, but not nervous or aggressive. Dignified, intelligent and independent. (Source: FCI)


    New Information & Resources on

    A Summary of the Breed-Specific Breeding Program (JTO) has been added to our Downloads section. Read more about the Saluki in our Pedigreed Breeds Database.
