An avid hunter with great strength and endurance, the Saluki is one of the oldest dog breeds. This sighthound originally was used by the Arabs to bring down gazelle. Graceful, independent and loving, the Saluki does best with daily exercise. Salukis can be coated, with feathering on the legs, or smooth. They shed little but need weekly brushing and occasional bathing.
