Sloughi breed statistics

The Sloughi is a medium-sized, smooth-coated, athletic sighthound. An ancient breed, it is treasured in North Africa for its hunting skills, speed, agility, and endurance over long distances. The breed is noble and somewhat reserved, with a gentle, melancholy expression. Sloughis must be exercised on leash or in a large fenced area since they will run after anything that catches their fancy. The Sloughi’s smooth coat requires a weekly brushing.
