Sloughi Dog Breed Information
Originally from North Africa, the Sloughi, an ancient sighthound with a classical build, was developed to hunt wildlife including hares, foxes, jackals, gazelles, and feral pigs in its harsh native environment. This hound is slender and unadorned, ranging 24 to 29 inches at the shoulder. The Sloughi is a single-person or single-family dog breed that is affable to its owners but distant from outsiders. Their tenacious disposition can make them too much of a handful for novice dog owners as it does with many hounds.
