CHARACTERISTICS of saluki dog breeds
ADVICE 883
The saluki is ideal for someone that wants a big size show dog, it is easy to care for, doesn't eat too much and at the same time is tame a home trained.
ADVICE 884
Once it passes its puppy stage, during which, like its natural, it will be more nervous and will be difficult to control. The saluki will respect the rules the family which it lives with imposes and be sure it will gain there trust and affection.
ADVICE 885
The physical health of the saluki is normally perfect if it is raised properly, since it's very sober, resistant and fairly saving when it comes to its eating habits, if it eats little it drinks even less. Rice and starch must be administered in small amounts, since it prefers fruit, vegetables, lean meat or raw fish.

DESCRIPTION of Saluki dogs
It is a dog with graceful shapes, fast and resistant; these characteristics are mixed with its great strength and activity. It has an elegant pose, being kind and loyal, with a far out look.
It is distinguished by its feet, appropriate for hunting in natural terrain.
It is reserved with strangers; without being nervous or aggressive. It is intelligent and independent.

Long, thing and compact.
SKULL:
Moderately broad between the ears, not convex.
TRUFFLE:
Black or brown.

The jaw and teeth are strong and have a scissor like bite, regular and complete, meaning the upper incisors cover the lower ones with direct contact and are implanted vertically on the jaws.
EYES:
From dark to hazel, bright, very big, not protruding, with the eyelids having an oval opening.
EARS:
Long and move a lot, placed fairly high; when at rest they are carries flat against the cheeks; when the dog is alert, it carries them higher and forward. In the variety of dogs with bangs, the eras are covered with a silky hair, of varying length. To control the length, the tip of the ear should read the lip commissure.
NECK:
Long, flexible and with a well marked musculature.
BODY:
The back is moderately long. The marked development of the muscles produces a slight arch around the loin; however, it is never arched; in the general proportions, the loin is long enough to show the fairly long build. The hindquarters are long and slightly inclined. Well tucked belly.
CHEST:
Long and tall, not like a barrel or flat on the sides, moderately thin. Seen from the front, the chest is down enough, but not excessively, especially not deep set; the maneuver of the sternum is evident.
TAIL:
Long, placed high and carried naturally curved in the lower continuation (never rolled up). The tip is full of silky bangs more or less long; it never is dense. Its length at least reaches the hocks.

The front extremities are straight and long, from the elbow to the carpals. Flat boned.

Inclined and placed real back; flat musculature that is well developed without looking heavy.

The front legs are slightly inclined backwards.

Strong and flexible, moderately long, not short and round like cat feet; the toes are long and well arched, not separate; it can have hair between the toes; the two middle fingers are clearly longer then the side ones.
BACK EXTREMITIES:
Moderately angled knees. The hocks are placed down and the back feet have the same characteristics as the front ones, but are a little shorter.
MOVEMENT:
When trotting the movement is easy, light, very flexible, well balanced between the front and back part. The steps are long and even. High or heavy movements are not accepted. In movement the extremities have a natural tendency to get near the middle line, without crossing or unbalancing it.
HAIR:
Straight, of a silky texture, the outer layer is slightly harder than the bangs, that are flexible, smooth and silky; there is a fair amount of bangs in the back part of the rear legs and specially in the front legs.
