      About the Saluki Sighthound breed (Source Wikipedia.org)
      The saluki is perhaps the oldest known breed of domesticated dog. As a purebreed type, its history can be traced back almost 5000 years. A study published in the May 21, 2004 issue of Science confirms the Saluki's antiquity through DNA analysis identifying it as one of the earliest breeds to diverge from wolves.

      Widely admired for its beauty, speed, and endurance, the Saluki historically traveled throughout the Middle East with nomadic desert tribes over an area stretching from the Sahara to the Caspian Sea. As a result, different Saluki subtypes, varying mostly in color and coat, can be found across this widely scattered area.

      The Saluki is a sighthound bred especially for grace and speed. A NOVA episode titled "Dogs and More Dogs", asserts that the Saluki is able to outrun any other land mammal over a three-mile course. Although the greyhound is widely viewed as being the fastest dog breed with a top speed of around 45 mph, the Saluki is sAID to be faster, with top speeds of 48 mph. Testing this has proved difficult as Salukis show no interest in electric hares and won't race Greyhounds on a track. However, in as much as their original use was for hunting desert gazelles with top speeds of over 43 mph, the speed claim could be true. Train your pup using Cesar Millan's Dog Whisperer tips!
