The Saluki is one of the oldest breeds, perhaps dating as far back as 7000BC. Once known as the Persian Greyhound or the gazelle hound, their sleek beauty and athleticism made them favorites among kings and their ancestors could have been found with Alexander the Great, in the Egyptian royal court, and in middle eastern legend they were said to be a gift from Allah! Salukis are lithe and intelligent and do best in a house with a yard to run in. Inside, their low-fat physique requires soft cushions or sofas. They are also the mascot of the University of Illinois Carbondale!
