History

  • He originated in Egypt
  • He was used to hunt gazelle

Personality and Behavior

  • He's independent, reserved and aloof
  • He's strong, fast, swift, and possesses lots of stamina
  • His strong hunting instinct means he'll chase just about anything that moves
  • He has a high pitch howl

Training

  • He's fairly easy to train. He learns commands at an average rate.

Shedding

  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
