Two trips, one to Tunisia and one to Morocco,
and Dominique was fortunate enough to find 3 Sloughis to
once again, hopefully, widen the American Sloughi's gene pool

Q'Taya, from the Sahara Desert in Tunisia.
She has the tribal ear crop and 3 brand marks on each of her front legs.
She had been found for someone else, 
but could not go to Europe because of her cropped ears.
