The Sloughi's native countries are Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. It is the hound of the Berber and Bedouin who have always highly treasured the Sloughi's tremendous hunting skills, beauty, loyalty and treated him like family.
In the old days, the Sloughi was used to hunt desert hare, fennec (desert fox), gazelle, large mountain gazelle, hyena, ostrich, and jackal. Today it hunts mainly desert hare, fennec, rarely gazelle, and protects the goat and sheep herds by hunting their predator the jackal.
Like all Sighthounds they are open space hunters, they rely on excellent vision, speed and stamina to catch their prey. They chase on sight anything that moves, however far away. Although the breed hunts mainly by sight, it also relies on scent and sound to do so.
They are aloof and cautious with people they do not know. With its Family they are gentle, affectionate and very loyal. Once it has bonded with someone, they do not always change owners with ease. They like children brought up to respect animals, and harmonize well with other pets, such as cats, other dogs, and parrots, when raised with them.

Grooming- the smooth coat needs minimal care

Exercise- They require regular daily exercise of long walks and off lead running to stay in shape.

Health- For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
