From January 1996 to December 1999, the Sloughi ran in the "Miscellaneous over 18"" stake. 
After 4 years of coursing under Miscellaneous status, 
the breed was moved to Provisional status at the ASFA Conference of Delegates 1999. 
The SFAA lure-coursing titles are awarded by the Sloughi Fanciers Association of America, 
and the Foundation titles by ASFA for the dogs running between 1996-1999.

In April 2001, The ASFA Conference of Delegates (ACoD 2001, Seattle)
votes in favor of recognizing the Sloughi as an official breed in ASFA, starting May 1 2001.
