Scam of this Saluki's Registration within the FCI system
Looks versus Geographic, Cultural and Genetic uniqueness
The History of the most famous Saluki in the French Société Centrale Canine (affiliated with FCI) Sloughi Registry.
Why are dogs like this Saluki, crossbred to Sloughias in the 1980s, still a problem today in the Western Sloughi breeding?
1) Because of the Inbreeding on this Saluki
that is still taking place today
2) Because when combined with another Saluki named Jenna, who came from the Middle East (Syria), also used by Mme Rey (Montouchet de la Horde d'Or) it increases even more the amount of Saluki DNA
LET THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

80s, this is how a recent pedigree from their bloodlines looks like (breeder

WHY ARE THE BREEDERS WITH THESE LINES NOT DILUTING
THE SALUKI BLOOD IN THEIR LINES
WHY ARE THEY INSTEAD EXPORTING THEIR DOGS WITH
SUCH HUGE AMOUNTS OF FOREIGN BLOOD TO NORTH AFRICA
Every breed has its questionable dogs in the
ancestry, however it is perfectly irresponsible to continue inbreeding
Some of the breeders are now breeding out to
other lines, that do not contain these 2 Salukis, diluting their impact.
INBREEDING IN ITSELF REDUCES THE GENE POOL
AND COMPROMISES THE DOGS' HEALTH
