The Sloughi is a greyhound of the Sighthound family. It was popular in Morocco, Syria, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia. An established favourite, the Sloughi is a splendidly elegant dog that has not changed in appearance since ancient times, when it was raised and used for hunting, and guarding the flocks. The breed was pure bred, splendidly athletic and aloof, and it was pampered by the Arabs, who admired its noble qualities.
There is much speculation over the origin of the Sloughi, which is one of two recognised Sighthound breeds. They may originate from the Orient or Nubia. Earthenware fragments from about 3000 B.C. depict short-haired Sighthounds which resemble the Sloughi. The Sloughi was often confused with the Middle Eastern Saluki, which led to a dramatic impact on some Western Sloughi breeding. Sloughis appear to belong to the same family as the Azawakh, but not the Saluki. The Sloughi is also often mistaken for the smooth Afghan hound.
