History and Origins
The Sloughi dog breed is revered by the Bedouin tribesmen, who decorate the Sloughi with talismans and amulets. When a Bedouin goes visiting, his Sloughi is treated with the same respect as any honoured guest, and tribesmen will willingly give up their blanket for their Sloughi should they be cold. And when the Sloughi dog dies, the grief of the Bedouin is apparent and the hound is mourned with dignity. There is evidence of the Sloughi dating back to the Ancient Egyptians, and a mummified body of a Sloughi has been discovered in a tomb.
