Arabian Saluki Dogs

 
These desert hunting dogs have been around for 7,000 years and originate from the Arabian Peninsula, Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Apparently, there’s around 800 pure Arabian Salukis like this one in the UAE.

Now that's a legacy! 7000 years and still around. This one is pretty skinny, guess these dogs are fast runners. Great shot!
