Saluki hounds - why do so many Emiratis like them?


City: Dubai

Emerate: Dubayy

Country: United Arab Emirates


The Saluki is perhaps the oldest known breed of domesticated dog . ... Salukis are "sight" hounds which means they sight the quarry, run it,
Emiraties like them because they are the best bread of dogs for the traditional Emirati whether plowing there crops, managing there fields or cultivating there lands........ also this bread of dogs are easily adaptabble to the UAE weather!
actually its a bad thing to keep dogs at home in muslim homes but saluki is one dog which is loved by emaratis because

1. its a good hunting dog
2. it survives the harsh weather
