The 2 brindle Sloughis on this photo are Sebegu and Mouja
They were bred by Belgacem Ben Ali in Tunisia and imported by Liz Gross von Huebbenet (Nuri al Baida, Germany)
They were supposed to stay about 3 months with us until Liz could find a way to register them. That was in 2008.
They are still here
Now the 2 dogs have outlived their commercial value and have been dumped at Shi'Rayan
with outstanding veterinarian ($589.96) and food bills
Nuri al Baida has a new Tunisian toy now and dumps the old ones
So sad, when one thinks that Sebegu is the father of this woman's C litter
Beware of commercial breeders and their so-called "love" of the breed
It is all about money

It has been a while since one of our Sloughis have won this.
So we are very happy with Saff's achievement

Amal  becomes Superior Gazehound Racing Champion 2,
Only 6 Sloughis have achieved this title so far since the beginning of LGRA (sprint racing) in 1995, 5 are males, 1 is a Sloughia.
 Amal becomes the first African bred and the second Sloughia to achieve this difficult title in the history of the breed in the USA
