erfunhouse So glad to hear that he's settling in nicely! Post more pics cause he sure is pretty!

egyptshepherdguy Just to update I had a reply from a "wolf expert" who has said this is probably a Husky, Malamute, GSD mix

He as settled in nice however the vet said he looks like local Arabian wolf dog mix that are different than European wolf

Oh well he is nice whatever he is

Gretchen He really does look like part Saluki. At first I thought he was under nourished, but these are lean dogs. The other part could be Husky? it just seems bizarre to have a northern breed in Egypt.

Freestep No wolf in that dog, fortunately. Looks like a Husky mix to me.

Side note: THE "NEGEV- TYPE" SALUKI HAS STRONG ROOTS IN THE REGION INCLUDING THE SINAI PENINSULA (sorry for capitals copy and pasted)

OK. Now that you posted this picture - yeah, could definitely be Saluki mix. I love that last picture you posted of your dog. His eyes are gorgeous.

Kaimeju I agree he could also be a saluki shepherd mix. He has that leggy look. Salukis aren't nearly as common here in the US so you won't see many saluki mixes in shelters.

If huskies are as rare as you say the dog could very well be a mix with a dog like the grizzle colored Saluki you posted. If I remember correctly Salukis in the Far East aren't as set in type as those in North America. While they are all sighthounds, some can be more heavily built than what is seen in the North American show ring.
Thanks for your reply.

We are super lucky here in that we have native "wild" saluki type dogs not so lucky for them as they do struggle but for the most part bedouins look after them and they are bred for performance. Where possible educated people take them to spay and neuter

Yes the sight hounds come in all large sizes and shapes

They are what we call "baladi" which is Arabic for "local" or simply mountain dog. You guys would call them mixed breed but they are the most intelligent and loyal dogs ever. I need to really document them for sight hound lovers who would never see them.

If anyone wants to export them the easiest route is via Belgium take them all there are plenty of rescue groups here
