Saluki’s are known to be content to lounge for hours; still, they need daily exercise. They are devoted but tend not to be demonstrative; they can be gentle with children and relish sitting by your side. These dogs are not well-suited for a small space and don’t feel well when left home alone all day.
They need space to roam, preferably in a yard with a high fence, as they tend to get quite big and can scale a fence. Can you provide the Saliki with all of this? If not, then consider adopting a different breed of dog. The Saluki looks sad enough as it is.
Not for any price. Leave this alone.

The Chow Chow, a dog that comes from ancient China, has an air of mysterious timelessness. Dignified, serious-minded, and sometimes aloof, the Chow Chow is a breed of unique delights.

For maintaining a clean, odor-free home, this is the best choice for you. Take it home.
This dog worked hard to earn its title. The Rat Terrier was first bred for ratting and farm work.
