History & Job

Origin: North Africa

Year Recognized: 2016

Breed History & Job Description: Like many breeds developed in antiquity around the Mediterranean basin, the Sloughi’s origins are—in the inevitable words of canine historians—“lost in the mists of history.” We do know that Sloughi-type hounds were favored hunting companions of Egyptian nobles, Berber kings, and nomadic chieftains who kept packs of tough but graceful hounds that could course game across vast expanses of desert. It’s theorized that Berber cavalrymen who accompanied Hannibal during his famous crossing of the Alps might have introduced the Sloughi to Europe.

Health

Sloughis are generally a healthy breed. Like all breeds there may be some health issues. Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Sloughis are healthy dogs.
