Sloughi

General Description

The overall expression of most Sloughis is gentle, slightly sad, and melancholic. The coat of the Sloughi is short, smooth, tight, and fine over the dog's entire body. The Sloughi's general demeanour is usually described as dignified, reserved, and regal.

Hereditary Illnesses

Addison's disease, cancer, and hypothyroidism can also affect the Sloughi. Because of their low body fat, sighthounds like the Sloughi are very sensitive to anaesthesia

Character and Temperament

Intelligent, sensitive, alert and faithful

Food

Food/Diet. Because the Sloughi has a strong need for speed, it is essential that you provide him with a diet of dry kibble specifically formulated for his high energy level. It's wise to feed two meals as opposed to one meal daily to prevent bloat. Of course, always have fresh, clean water available for the dog

Exercise

Sloughis need ample exercise and do not respond well to harsh training methods. Despite their athleticism, they are very quiet in the home.

Grooming

Low

Origin

The Sloughi has existed for centuries in North Africa and is largely found in Morocco. Morocco is responsible for the breed's FCI Standard. The Sloughi was and still is used for hunting in its native countries, and also is a reliable guard dog. Today, the Sloughi is mainly found in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya.
