by Marie-Dominique Crapon de Caprona, Ph.D. 

An ancient desert sighthound from northern Africa, the Sloughi remains as mysterious and exotic to Westerners as do its homelands of Morocco. Algeria, Libya and Tunisia. World authority and leading Sloughi breeder Marie-Dominique Crapon de Caprona has provided an astoundingly complete portrait of her beloved breed, including an insightful look at the breed’s lands of origin, the breed’s importation to Europe, the US and Canada, a comparative look at the Sloughi and its close relatives the Saluki, Greyhound and Azawakh, and the breeders and famous dogs who have established the breed in the modern-day world of pure-bred dogs. 

The author’s vivid description of the noble intelligent sighthound’s temperament and characteristics will prove helpful to readers contemplating the acquisition of a Sloughi. Further information will guide readers with regard to finding a reputable breeder, puppy selection, care and house-training. De Caprona’s discussion of the breed standard, accompanied by excellent color photographs and line drawings, will enlighten novice and experienced fanciers alike. 

This Special Rare-Breed Edition offers owners a comprehensive guide to all aspects of owning and caring for the Sloughi, including feeding, grooming, exercise and obedience training. An up-to-date and accurate healthcare chapter, written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman, covers vital information about vaccinations, veterinarian selection, parasites and preventive care. All admirers of the breed will enjoy the chapter on the Sloughi’s participation in dog shows, lure coursing and racing events.
