Despite a look of nobility and haughtiness, Sloughis are very fond of their handlers and companions, who they will defend if need be. Hunters by instinct, capable of sustained effort, these North African dogs also enjoy all the creature comforts.

Sloughis have existed for centuries in the Maghreb and today most of them are found in Morocco, which holds the standard. These smooth-coated sighthounds are very racy, elegant dogs, not only in terms of demeanor, but also because of their lean musculature and fine tissues.

The eyes have it in this breed. Large, dark peepers, well set in their sockets, produce a particularly gentle expression, a little pensive, even wistful.
