Prefix : ETAAL (Saluki)
Salukis are truly the paradox of the dog world: their sweet, sensitive, charmingly beautiful selves can frustrate you with their stubbornness, ability to completely forget their training, and utter disdain for your time when you’re in a rush. Their split-second change between comatose and racetracking around the yard is second to none.
Because I am so passionate about salukis, I spend as much time as I can learning about history, pedigrees, genetics, and health. I have a large number of mentors around the world who I am ever thankful to for their openness and vast knowledge they share with me. As a reflection of how I have been welcomed by my global mentors, I am always eager to speak with anyone who wants to learn because I firmly adhere to the idea of “promote what you love”.
The saluki is quite a healthy breed, but I believe in testing for the things we can, keeping clear records (heart, thyroid, monitoring blood levels, allergies), and being transparent and open. If something occurs that we do not know about, it is the responsibility of the owner/breeder to make the problem public and work to find a solution to benefit the breed.
I have been blessed with the support, trust, and friendship of breeders who breed functional, moderate salukis with beautiful temperaments, huge personalities, are easy to live with, health-tested stock. We believe in multi-purpose salukis: family members who are competitive at showing and lure coursing.
