Sloughi

The Sloughi is one of the sighthound breeds of North Africa originating in the band of countries which border the Mediterranean: Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Libya. The desert type were lighter in frame than those used on mountainous terrain. The Sloughi was probably brought to Europe after the French occupation of Algeria. The Sloughi is a lean sighthound, sharing some similarities with the Saluki. His evident pinbones and sweeping underline are sighthound features. The Sloughi does not naturally carry any subcutaneous fat as this is a cooling mechanism for desert conditions and this results in a very slim body.
