VetStreet.com: 14 Dog Breeds You've Never Heard Of (but Will Soon)

14 of 16

Sloughi

The sleek Sloughi is a smart and affectionate sighthound who is built for speed. In his native North Africa, he lived with the nomadic Berber people and hunted jackals, gazelles and desert hares. His strong prey drive is still very much apparent, so make sure you're there to supervise the Sloughi around other pets. He quickly forms an unbreakable bond with his family, which makes rehoming a Sloughi very difficult. He's also fast in mind and body, so make sure your yard is secure — an underground electric fence won't stop this breed from chasing squirrels across the street.
