So you’re looking to adopt an Saluki, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The beauty of Salukis has been a thing of wonder for thousands of years. They’re slim and leggy, but very strong and perfectly balanced, like a great athlete or dancer. Males can stand between 23 and 28 inches at the shoulder; females can be much shorter. They come in a many colors and patterns. Their large, oval-shaped eyes are warm and intelligent.Salukis are highly adaptable, able to live and work in any climate. They’re magnificent animals, but owning them comes with many special challenges. Among the world’s oldest breeds, the slim but rugged Saluki was the hunting hound of kings for thousands of years. Salukis are swift and agile sprinters who love a good chase. They make gentle, dignified, and independent but loyal pets.”
An Saluki typically ranges from 58.42cm to 71.12cm in height, and weighs from 18.143694800000002kg to 29.48350405kg.
