This Egyptian breed has been traced back to millennia ago, where it was considered a noble breed, owned only by royalty and often mummified alongside Egyptian pharaohs. After spreading to England in the 1800s, the Saluki was nicknamed “Persian Greyhound.” The Saluki has two varieties (smooth and feathered) and has incredible running ability and endurance. These tall, slender dogs are reserved and sensitive in nature, but can do well with families and children. Salukis excel with plenty of room to run.

The Afghan Hound is one of the ancient dog breeds – so ancient that many believe the Afghan was the dog rescued on Noah’s Ark. Known for their elegant beauty, the Afghan Hound has two distinctive features: a thick coat that served to protect it from harsh climates in the mountains of Afghanistan where it originated and a unique tail that curls to a point at the end. These agile, athletic dogs have devoted, pleasant personalities and do well with children and plenty of room to run.
This breed is well-known as the world’s fastest couch potato. Greyhounds are very calm, gentle, quiet, and well-mannered among the different sorts of dogs, and they are great for families who have small children. This breed fits in almost every environment from a condo to a country home. They are usually fine with other dogs and house pets, but they can become anxious easily if they are separated from their pet parents. They have a low energy level; they are very happy when walking on a leash, but be aware that Greyhounds are sprinter dogs, so give them a chance to run in some safe surroundings. Their average weight is 60 to 70 pounds, and their size is about 24 to 27 inches.
